Roman Forum - Via Sacra, Rome: 13 reviews and 20 photos

  Temple of Saturn overlooking the Forum
by mrclay2000

This ancient view comprehends the Via Sacra, the oldest street in the city running roughly from the Temple of Saturn with its imposing columns to the Arch of Titus farther south (rightmost in the photo). Nearby pylons and fragments contain the earliest known writing in Latin anywhere in the world. The campanile of the 11th century church Santa Maria Nova looms in the distance, followed behind by the brooding Coliseum.
