Roman Forum - Basilica Julia, Rome: 5 reviews and 6 photos

  Basilica Julia

Normally the legal, political and commercial business of the forum was conducted out of doors, but in bad weather it was moved into great halls called basilicas. The building of Basilica Julia was commisioned by Julius Caesar in 54BC, but was finished nearly 50 years later under Augustus.

Directions: The area south of the westside of the Forum is where the Basilica Julia is.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
