...you must visit the Forum. Although not as crowded as the Colosseum, you are never alone in the Forum. This is more of a free walk around than a museum Be sure to prepare well with you guide book and set a side a couple of hours to walk around this amazing historical area.

Part of your tour no matter how you do the tour. The forum is so big you can't miss it. There was some conservation work going on whilst we were there and the workers were keen to help put with questions. We didn't take any set tour as we like to ramble and take our time.... That is what I... More

When visiting Rome there are a few "must see" places ..... and of course the Roman Forum is certainly one of those that you really shouldn't miss. Beautiful, easy to get to and find and you are off to the next stop -- maybe after a nice gelato on the way :-)

Spent hours walking around. Remember to take a water bottle and refill it from the spring. Recommend a book to read about what you are looking at

Looks better from the outside and lines to get in to the attraction can be quiet long so worth planning it ahead

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
