Roman Forum (Foro Romano)

Largo Romolo e Remo, Rome, 00186

The Basics

The site is most often visited on three-hour tours that combine a visit to the ancient city with a Colosseum tour. Whether you choose a private tour or small-group tour, it's wise to visit with an expert guide who can help you navigate the large space and bring the ruins to life with true stories of gladiators, Roman emperors, and Julius Caesar. After your visit, check out the adjacent ruins at Circus Maximus or pay a visit to the Capitoline Museums to see the display of classical Roman empire sculptures.

We thought we would see the underground, but JC did a great job. He was a little difficult to understand at some points throughout the tour. He had lots of information to share and was passionate about our safety.

Small-Group Colosseum Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
Tour guide was great. But the colosseum was super busy that day so our entry was delayed and we were very limited in what we could see inside. We walked around maybe half of top but were not able to experience the main floor or lower levels.

Skip the Line: Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill Guided Tour
Skipping the line is worth the price of the tour, but having a guide to take you through the history and stories is worth it. There is so much to take in, and having someone to guide you through history and the ruins is perfect.

Discovering the Roman Forum Ruins

Inside the archaeological area, stick to the Forum’s main thoroughfare, Via Sacra, to pass by important ruins such as the Julia Curia and the house of the Vestal Virgins. Some of the forum’s most impressive ruins include the white marble arch of Settimio Severo, the first-century Arch of Titus, and the remains of the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine. If you can’t get enough of ancient Rome, there’s plenty more history just outside the city with day trips available to Pompeii and the Appian Way.
