Roman Forum - Rome


The Roman Forum was the marketplace of Rome, the business district as well as a religious centre. Later it was reduced to a monumental area before being finally abandoned when the regime collapsed. Today much of the forum has been destroyed but a walk through the ruins tells the story of a powerful and great empire, from its humble beginnings right up until its decline. The importance of the Forum is indicated by the presence of many important institutional buildings and figures - including the Curia, the Basilica of Maxentius, the arch of Titus and the arch of Septimius Severus and the Temple of Saturn to name but a few. In particular the arch of Titus and the arch of Septimius Severus still stand and have survived well and are in good shape.
