For centuries, countless feet have tread on these cobblestones. Everyone - from parades for conquering heroes to commoners visiting markets - made their way down this route. It’s one things to read about it or see pictures of it, but it is quite another thing...More

Although I didn’t walk down this road, you could tell from afar that it was where most of the original structures of The Ancient Roman Republic were built. The internet says it was first constructed, probably as a path, by the second king of Rome,...More

Take the walk. You will be amazed as you go along. I suggest you start at the Colosseum. Take your time and take it in.

This was the main street of ancient Rome and is still very well preserved. We had a glimpse of the past as we walked from the Colosseum towards Palatine Hill.

This goes right through the heart of the forum. I’m sure it would have been busier then than it now (and that’s saying something!). It probably would have been better underfoot though - you need good footwear to go through the forum ruins.

I went on a tour today which included going on the Via Sacra or Sacred Road as it is in English. It was very impressive and is in great condition given how old the road it. It fits in perfectly with its surroundings.

We walked the Via Sacra starting from the Colosseum side. At that point it slopes up towards the Palatine Hill, concealing what is to come. Reaching the top of the slope, the Forum suddently appears in front, along with the rest of the Via Sacra,...More

This small area of Rome is fascinating. It is the only place I have ever seen Catholic religious garments, chalices, priest vestments, and all the other religious artefacts on sale. For anyone from a Catholic background, seeing all these familiar items in stores with price...More

Via Sacra is the historical walkway leading from the Forum to the Colosseum. The pathway is of cobble-stones and well preserved. There are lots of historical ruins for photo-taking. Recommended.
