Our tips for Roman Forum

  • Starting point. To make the most out of your Roman forum tours start at Palatine Hill and work your way down, finishing with the Colosseum. That way you will experience the full scale of this site and not miss any of its key features.
  • Think ahead. Lines for the Colosseum can be long, a pre-bought ticket will solve that issue. 
  • Choose the right footwear. The cobbled stones can get slippery, and you’ll be doing plenty of walking, so it’s best to leave the sandals and put on those trainers.
  • Book in advance. The Forum can be very busy, especially with the Colosseum in close proximity, pre-book your Roman Forum tickets for ease of mind.

Good to know

Once the socio-political center of Rome, Roman Forum has truly remarkable architecture that makes it one of the must-visit attractions on your sightseeing path around the capital. As you march down the cobbled pathways, you can explore the remnants of its grandiose temples, homes and bustling markets.

Derived from the Latin name Forum Romanum, Roman Forum attracts approximately 4.5 million visitors per year. The Forum was in use for approximately 1400 years and started around 800 BC to 600 AD. The majority of the structures were built during the reign of Julius Caesar and his successor Augustus.

According to the legend, the Forum is also home to the tomb of Romulus – the founder of Rome. The Laps Niger marks his grave. The Temple of Caesar is where supposedly Julius Caesar was cremated in 44 BC.

The Temple of Saturn, one of the most exemplary structures, dates back to 497 BC. The column used to hold state archives, and reserves of gold and silver at that time. The Roman Forum got neglected during the Middle Ages to become an abandoned pasture for livestock earning the nickname ‘Cow Field.’
