The Forum was the centre of all the political, social and commercial action in ancient Rome. Breathe in the same air that Caesar did.
The Roman Forum is surrounded by the ruins of many Government buildings of historical significance in central Rome. This area was originally the marketplace but later became the forum which was the center of public life in Rome. The site of many elections, speeches, trials -it was where everything that mattered in the city happened. Today there is still much to see, including the Temple of Saturn, the Tabularium and the Arch of Septimius Severus. This attraction dating back to ancient Rome attracts almost 5 million visitors from around the world every year.
Visit the original Roman Forum and imagine the beating heart of the city as Gladiators were paraded here prior to entering the Colosseum, the elections into Roman office happened here, plus the Senate and the Republican Government began here - overnight offices, tribunals, statues and temples overtook the area. Eventually it became a city square where Romans could come to gather for all purposes of a political,commercial and judicial nature.
