The Forum allows you to really immerse yourself in the world of ancient Rome. You can walk along the paths that ancient Romans walked, view some of the sites they viewed, and really get a feel for how ancient Rome felt.

We didn't enter the Forum itself, because somebody (a tourist) showed the entrance, but this was temporarily closed (Colosseum-side). Nevertheless we walked a long time along the fence where we could however admire a lot of the ruins.

You can easily spend hours here walking through and past the ruins. So many fantastic sights to stop and admire. Such a great place to visit along with the palatine hills and ruins.

What an experience walking on the same grounds that the Romans walked on 2000 years ago! Brought back images of Rome portrayed in the movies about that time period. Great to be walking on ground that was such an important part of the history of civilization.

Another must see historical sight in Rome, we were not disappointed. We had a tour guide with us, so we were able to learn about the history of this ancient civilization. It was beyond cool. Be sure to bring good walking shoes, because the ground is rough and uneven, and not very handicap accessible. The only complaint I had was... More

Included in the price of Colloseum and very close to it. Here you can see the ruins of several important buildings of that period. This was the cultural, economical and social center of ancient Rome. On the hill next to it you can admire the ruins of the "bourguesie" houses and also a spectacular view of modern Rome

I really enjoyed my visit which takes you back in time. To really enjoy the place download Rick Steves Guide to Rome (free download) and listen as you walk through the different roads and recognise the buildings.

These ruins are a must visit! You can actual walk through the ruins and enter most of the structures! Go with ample time and explore the Roman Forum well!

Read up in advance or hire a tour guide. The Roman Forum is filled with history but you must bring your imagination and wear comfortable stable shoes as there is a lot of walking and the path is not always easy to navigate.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
