    by MM212

Built in the 2nd century AD by Emperor Trajan, his namesake markets could be considered ancient Rome's souk or bazaar. Not surprising perhaps, since the architect Apollodorus, who designed the markets, was from Damascus, a city known for its souks to this day. Although fairly well preserved, Trajan's Markets are said to show little of their original splendour. Every day produce and products were sold in these markets in Roman times. Tourist visits to the Markets are permitted.
