Having lived in Rome for two years and having led many student groups to see the city's riches, I felt I should check out this museum to see what it had to offer and what I wasn't exposing my students to that could help them...More

Marvelous remains of Emperor Trajan's Forum, including a library, shopping arcade, administrative offices and the triumphal column. After the Colosseum, this is maybe the largest still standing ancient structure in the Roman Forum (or better said - Forums). There is a museum inside the Market,...More

Not knowing much about the site before going in, I was pleasantly surprised. From the street it looks like a small exhibition, but once you get in, the route takes you through the several floors and forums that the Traiano site has to show you....More

Well I crossed the road from Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II and thought we just look around these ruins, to prepare ourselves when we later visit the Colosseum which we could see up the road when we would see more ruins. The Trajan's Forum is...More

It is part of Trajan's Market and there are many shops around the structures in the past. Detailed explanations are available by joining the guided tour despite the entrance fee on the high side.

This covers a large area and many stairs. I would not recommend for anyone with a stroller or wheelchair. There’s objects to view inside on two levels and outside on 3-4 levels. It’s a maze to get to them all. A map would be useful....More

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
