"The Old City Square" Roman Forum Tip by BruceDunning
Roman Forum, Rome: 244 reviews and 478 photos
The ancient city is so well preserved, it is beyond my belief. It is called For Romano. The old city now is 25 feet lower than normal street level, due to rebuilding over the previous structures and continued build up around the Campidoglio area. The Arch of Septimus SEverus is best preserved, and has marble statues depicting military victories. The is a house of Vestal Virgins, where they lived for life, or until they lost that honor, and kept a flame going 24/7 for Temple of Vesta. Temple of Saturn is where the biggest events were held.
Get a map of what it looked like in the proud era, and learn of the culture form this. Open 9-6 daily, except Sunday for 9-1, and longer in summertime.
Directions: By the Colosseum.
