I've been to Rome three times and this is the first time I took time to see these ruins. I'm sorry I waited so long! The size alone will give a very good idea of just how wealthy and powerful the ancient Romans were. It...More

What a wonderful place to visit. The majesty of the structure is incredible. Easy access and worth the visit out of town by bus (#628). Grounds are beautifully kept and you can easily get a feel for the place.
