Take your time here!! So rewarding to have an audio guide and to walk slowly through it. We've spend most part of our day there and loved it. Especially for people interested in history, culture and architecture.

The Forum is accessible via a number of gates around the perimeter. When you buy a ticket to the Colosseum, entry to the Forum is included. There are maps dotted around, so you can see what you're looking at and after the hustle and bustle outside the Colosseum, it is refreshing to leisurely walk around an open space without being...

What a great place to visit and see up close how everything used to be. Some of the ruins on show are quite a feat of building. There are boards around which give good info.

We got lost between the ruins but we really enjoyed. The line was not very long, however more signs about the facilities and exits would be more comfortable.

A town of history! A grate experience to visit the this beautiful place full of history. The Roman Forum was the center of political life in the Roman Empire, evidenced by many relics, temples and churches. Worth to visit!!!

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighborhood Profile
Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this neighborhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighborhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
