Rome encompasses 20 centuries of history. Not only the archaeological findings of the fora and buildings of the Roman Empire in the area between Colosseum and Piazza Venezia, but the Colosseum itself and the Pantheon are 20 centuries old. All over the historic center of Rome, places with archaeological findings can be encountered, to give one example, Largo di Torre... More

Walking into the landscape near where the Ceasars lived and the Apostle Paul wrote to churches, and he and others, were imprisoned. Near the Colosseum where so much of history took place and the Romans govern one third of the world... was awesome and overpowering. I was inspired and challenged to make our world better. More kindly, accepting, and loving.

I saw so many pictures, read so many books about, but only there I realized that my fantasy was not strong enough... It feels strange to walk where they walked...the good old Romans (not all of them, of course!), to see the columns so close, the pavements, walls, sculptures...It almost sent me back in time, dreaming of how it was...

The Forum and Colosseum are remarkable ancient ruins. Read up on the history before you go if you are not taking a guided tour. Audio guides were not available when we visited. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Try to visit at sunset.

Very interested area. You need to be able to walk on uneven walkways and up stairs or hills and ramps. This is a half day walking on your own. There are no lines to get tickets in October so don't waste your money on a tour that cost a lot of money and tells you you will avoid the lines!... More

the ruins of the roman empire can be found all over Europe with just a little looking around. some of the best ones you can find are all around Italy, from Ravenna to rome itself. also, don't think that those are the only ones, there are plenty of hidden gems all over the place to find.

excellent site, well preserved. Be prepared to walk a lot, wearing comfortable shoes and don't forget a hat and lots of water during summer and hot days. Camera is a must.

The rise and fall of the Roman Empire. It was written in the history books. And those buildings, monument, statues are still there, reflecting the old civilization of Rome Italy.
