This is the place that provides the best view of the Roman Forum while inside the site (at least I think so). This section was the most crowded area of the Roman Forum. Let your imagination roam freely and just go back in time when all the buildings were at their pick and people in togas were strolling around the area all day long.

The legend says that Romulus and Remus (the twin brothers that everybody heard of and that were raised by the she-wolf on top of Palatine Hill) had a very hard time finding dates. Since this was a common problem for all men living here, they decided to attack the Sabine tribe and kidnap their women. After they made peace, the area became the meeting place and the trading center for all the tribes living on the nearby hills.
