"Roman Forum" Roman Forum Tip by ruki

Roman Forum, Rome: 244 reviews and 478 photos

 
 

This was the downtown area of the ancient city, where you could cross paths with Cicero or Caesar himself on their way to the political, religious, and commercial buildings which are still visible here today, 2000 years later, in various states of preservation. Very evocative of the power of Rome in her Golden Age.

Directions: Entrances at Largo Romolo e Remo 5-6, Piazza S. Maria Nova (Arch of Titus), and Via del Monte Tarpeo (Capitoline Hill).Metro Line B: Colosseo, or bus 87, or a 5-minute walk from Piazza Venezia
