This is huge example of a central part of roman life, still crowded by tourists instead of Romans - most impressive

You can almost hear the presence of the Romans in the Pompei Forum. It's so evocative and impressive. You can't miss it, it's a large area near the entrance to the town just up the hill from what used to be the sea front.

Times Square / Wall Street / The National Mall in DC / Americans can be proud of these sights. Yet, one must pay homage to the MUSE to all this. 7 little 9 iron mounds with a swamp in the middle, 3,000 years ago. The Forum in Rome is surrounded by CAPE-QVC. That's Capataline, Aventine, Palatine, Esquiline, Quirinale, Velia, and... More

The host was an archaeologist and very very knowledgable about the history. It was a lot of walking but an amazing tour.

It is amazing how much has survived the passing of time. It was also good to see the Forum all lit up at night. So don't forget to go out at night to see everything all lit up!

We hired Walks of Italy and we had a group of 15 people because our guide took a family of 3 and left our guide with the rest. Although we had more than ten people, it was great, they were informed and although it was warm we were able to see all the area. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water.... More

We had to laugh because this was once the center of life when Pompeii existed and here we were in 2014 and this is were the largest crowds congregated. The Romans knew how to get people to gather even today. : ) There are a lot of great sites located just around this area so make sure to wander around... More

This is one of many must sees that are at the ancient ruins. Great roman architecture. When you see it your imagination will wander just thinking if what it would have looked like before the volcano eruption.

The forum was the center of Pompeiian culture and the setting for governmental and religious ceremonies. Some of the original marble flagstones that paved the forum still remain. Large civic buildings ringed the area including the Basilica, the largest building in Pompeii and seat of judicial affairs and the Temple of Apollo which stood against the backdrop of Mt. Vesuvius.... More
