As an outsider looking in, the Roman forums look like a maze.. and a puzzling one at that!

There is so much to see and absorb here, it is highly recommended to either go on a bried tour or have a book with the details of what is what.

There is just so much history here. A real shame when you do not know what you are looking at though!

From an architectural and historical perspective, we were in awe of the forums. Yes, the ruins are not as complete as the coliseum, but they still spoke volumes.

A real treat!
