Expert travel writer: Rebecca Winke

Few places on earth have witnessed more history. Located between the Capitoline and Palatine Hills, the Forum is packed with Rome’s most ancient shrines, temples (which doubled as banks and art galleries), the Curia (Senate) and basilicas (law courts), the infamous Mamertine prison and the Arch of Titus.

It was here that the Vestal Virgins kept the sacred flame, politicians addressed the crowds from the rostra and victorious legions held their triumphs along the Sacred Way.

 

While you’re there

Located on the Via Sacra, just southeast of the Forum, the Arch of Titus was built in 81 AD by Emperor Domitian. It has inspired other triumphal aches around the world since, most notably the Arc de Triomphe.

Price from: £15
Minimum age: Any
Age suitable: 18+
When: All year around

Getting there & doing it

The entrance is a short walk from the Colosseo metro station or Piazza Venezia. The natural ‘flow’ is to work your way to the Palatine, then go out the back (exit only) to the Colosseum.

The ruins are confusing and not well labelled; this is definitely somewhere to be guided to make sense of it all. There are audio guides available, but expert-led, in-person guided tours are the way to go here.

The Forum, Palatine and Colosseum, all next to each other, are included in one entrance ticket.

When to do it

The site is open every day from end of March through August. There’s little shade, so in summer get there when it opens to avoid the worst of the heat and crowds.

Much of the Forum is illuminated at night, so you no longer need the moonlight for the beautiful view from Campidoglio, Michelangelo’s piazza on the Capitoline Hill.
