The Roman Forum (Foro Romano in Italian) used to be the center of the social and political life in ancient Rome. The Forum began to take shape in the 7th Century BC. Inside the site, you can visit the ruins of what used to be the religious, political, jurisdictional and commercial buildings. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city’s great men. The site attracts more than 4.5 million visitors per year.

If you’re curious to learn how they used to live more than 2000 years ago, this is for sure the best place to go. We highly suggest booking a guided tour here in order to appreciate the Forum to its fullest.
