Worth a visit

Beautiful structures. Take a moment to walk through or get a beautiful view from the top of the hill at dusk.

Incredible site and sights to see. Covers a large area with so much to see and marvel at. Walk round at a leisurely pace and admire the incredible work that went into the structures and try to envisage what they looked like when built. A peaceful interlude from the hustle and bustle of city.

First, I experienced the Roman Forum along with other ruins walking by them and seeing them from above lit up one evening. Truly a magical sight and quite the experience to walk among them during day time. To see them from the above is free, and to see them on ground level is 12 euros which already includes the Coluseum... More

Along with our Colosseum tour tickets, we got access to the Roman Forums... and what an amazing experience that was! It was soo hot when we went, so I recommend you take water, a hat and sunscreen with you!

Worth seeing once. Its a good walk with a lot of history and picture opportunities but you are required to buy a separate ticket and stand in long lines.

Get the audio guide to know what you are looking at. Walking on one of the most ancient roads in Rome, the tomb of Romulus, temple of Julius Ceaser. Could have spent all day here

This is an amazing place. You can see the many layers of Rome that were built upon each other over thousands of years. Get a guide so that you know what you are looking at.

The Roman forum is simply incredible. We booked this is part of a combination ticket with the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. I definitely recommend purchasing your tickets in advance so that you do not wait in a queue line at the Coliseum. There is so much to see here and if an audio guide is available I would recommend it.

Another site to be seen in Rome! If you get a chance to go to Rome this is another must see! Stay in Rome at least 4-7 days. So much to see and do. Beautiful, lots of history. Great food. So many sites close by. Depending on where your hotel is. We stayed at a B & B not far... More

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.
