Guided tour recommended

Forum Romano was one part of our guided tour and it was really interesting especially for our son, who is a true history lover. We spent there about 4 hours and looks like next time we'll reserve more time for this place.

History comes to life

Another must-see place in Rome. For the first time I'd recommend to take audio guide or a guided-tour, I am sure it will be even more interesting, especially if you travel with kids.

This tour added to the Roman Empire story!

The combo tour ticket with the Colosseum and guided tour allowed us to see more details of the ancient Roman landscape. This visit only added to the experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and excited about educating guests!

The old entertainment center

**My visit took place in January of 2020**

The Roman Forum is an immense place to visit. A payed tour is not required you can go and walk around freely around the historic landmark. The great structures are sure to take your breath away. There are different buildings you can go into while you are on the lower level of the forum. As you walk the ruins, you can see some of the broken down pillars of what used to be. A sense of nostalgia hits you as you think what could have been if you live in those times. Although it can get crowded, this place is big enough where you won't be shoulder to shoulder with other people. A map is giving to you per your request so that you have a general idea of where you are at. Pro tip... you can use Google maps too 😉. There is a trail that gets you to the upper level where you can reach the Palatine Hill and a garden that overlooks the whole forum. I highly recommended.

Best part of our trip to Rome
Jul 2020
If you do one thing in Rome, it's the Forum. Truly the best part of our trip. Download the Rick Steves audio tour to help you make sense of the ruins, the signage isn't very informative, and enjoy walking the same cobblestones as Julius Ceasar.

It gets crowded and hot, so get there early, and wear comfortable shoes, the cobblestones are ancient, and not very easy to walk on (that's coming from two healthy 23 year olds).

Palatine Hill is pretty, but not necessary. It's a long walk in the heat and there isn't much to see.

Feels like home
Feb 2021
I have been to the Forum several times over my lifetime. Each time I go I feel as if I am home. Another lifetime? who knows but I do know my soul feels at peace there. I love it!

Cobbled pathways

It is a real nuisance to drag your baby pram and stuffs through the cobbled pathways. We wonder how the differently abled do this tour?

Trip to Ancient Rome
Feb 2020 • Solo
Roman Forums had free admission, so I spent almost four hours exploring the ruins that I had seen many times before, but once again I could not resist a journey back in time and lingered there. The Arch of Titus is so amazingly preserved - unbelievable! The forums of Trajan, Augustus, Julius Caesar combined with Suetonius “Twelve Caesars” brought me right to the glorious days of Ancient Rome.

Palatine Hill and the views of the forums from the Belvedere are fabulous and certainly deserve to climb the steps (reliable shoes with good traction are much needed).

My favourite part of this tour was drinking from the fountains around the Forum
Sep 2020
I really liked the Roman Forum... Wow it's too great... The Roman Forum is even better than the Pantheon and the Colosseum... The carvings on the walls give one a glance of the rich and aesthetic Roman architecture and culture... It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site... I must visit the Roman Forum if toured Italy.
