The Roman forum is part of a greater complex of ruins of ancient Rome located in the same area as the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. We found the entire complex very interesting. The visit was somewhat tiring as we visited on an abnormally warm May afternoon.

Another of Rome's ancient spectacles. Try to visit during the day and see the forum in its glory (and to take pretty amazing pictures too) but do visit at night when special lighting effects show what the buildings would have looked like

One of the most important places to visit, for the historic value and to use your imagination about a place that once was the center of an Empire that ruled almost the entire world and Caesar became a God.

A must for everyone fascinated by Roman history. Recommend purchasing combined ticket with the Colosseum.

This is to be visited in conjunction with the Palatine Hill. Because it is a fairly large complex the number of people never seems to be overwhelming unlike Musei Vaticani and the Colosseum.

More interesting than the Colosseum. We put a Rick Steve's audio tour on our phones and it really added to the experience.

We bought the Hop On Hop Off as we only had three days in Rome. Part of the package were tickets to the Forum and Coliseum. We started at the Palatine Hill and made our way through a section of the forum. One gets over whelmed with everything there is to see. A little research would be beneficial so you... More

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.
