The Roman Forum – an Evidence of the Roman Greatness in Italy

In the heart of the Eternal City of Rome one can find the ruins of once the most important and glorious state – the Roman Empire. The wreckage site used to serve as the government buildings. Here citizens gathered to celebrate victories, for elections, trials, commercial affairs and even gladiator matches.

The oldest buildings in the Forum date back to the 8th century BC. But the biggest and most famous reconstruction was made by the emperor Augustus, who has found the site made of bricks and left it made of marble. Today an impressive number of visitors of around 4,5 millions explore the Forum every year. One of those unforgettable places to see at least once in a lifetime.

Why to go there?: Admire the ancient architecture and history, the Roman brilliance and spirit, depicted in these well preserved buildings.
When to go there?: All year round. Summer is the peak of tourism, so if you want to avoid crowds go there some other time.
How to get there?: On foot – it is the best way to explore the center of the old Rome.
