The forum romanum is where the political, social and commercial life was centered in ancient times. It is between the Captoline and Palatine hills.
Don't miss the 2000 year old Rome. Its hard to decide whether who did a better job on the city - these folks or the renaissance architects and artists
This is in the Forum.....Down these stairs is said to be the original ground level of the beging of Rome when Romulus Founded it
A piece of Rome's history and a beautiful sight to see. Take the time to imagine how life once was in this beautiful city called ROME.
Visit the Roman Forum. Ideally, you should join a tour in order to learn about the history of the place. Juilus Caesar, Mark Anthony, Cleopatra, etc! Fascinating.
Then you can go under Arc of Tito, and enter Palatino hill. Lots of interesting places to see, and once again to touch the past.
Of course, another (somewhat obvious) 'must-see' is the Roman Forum. Walking among the antiquties is thought-povoking...I mean that stuff just FEELS really old.
Through the years the city of Rome has been built upwards from the original city, layers upon layers...
Ok..this is the VESTAL VIRGEN...yup, the one we've been hearing about all this time. Please note how friggin unhappy she looks...
With a little imagination this arch could be in Paris or Greenwich Village. thats what it reminded me of.It marks the East end of the FORUM nearest the COLOSSEUM.
Here you can see the Roman Forum, which is located next to the Coliseum and to the Arch of Constantine. It's also near the Victor Emanuelle Monument.
