The Forum really is archetypal Rome - ancient but absolutely stunning! This really is a must-see.

It can get quite hot in the middle of the day, so I would recommend arriving early in the day if you can!

I wish I could write more about the site, that's supposed to be one of the best attractions of Rome. Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy our visit because when we entered, we had to leave because our Colosseum strict visit time had arrived. When we went back half an hour later, we were told that we couldn't enter again and we had to pay another full ticket (Colosseum + Palatine hill + Roman forum) and we were kicked out. Of course, when we purchased the tickets it was mentioned that are valid for 24 hours. But in our case, were valid for half an hour max.

In the past this was the centre of Rome, nowadays are a lot of ruins but they're very fascinating. Even if enter its a little expensive and during summer is very hot, the visit is well deserved and also watching by outside is very fine

One of the best walks in my journeys! You stroll in awe among the antiquities and trees and toy think you have travelled through time ! The price of the ticket is a bit high, but I wouldn't miss it for the world!

We visited the Roman Forum with a tour guide. It was nice to get a lot of information and details about specific ruins in the forum but the disadvantage is that you cannot wander the place at your own pace and go to all the place. I would recommend trying to book early and get the Full Experience ticket with the audio guide. I think you would have a more in depth visit.

This is a definite must to visit - so easy to see how things worked all that time ago. Amazing to see it all laid out in front of you and easy to imagine how it did look!

I guess you should visit the Forum Romanum with a guide, otherwise it is just a lot of ruins from different epochs.

Amazing to think how old some of the structures are and the amazing condition they are in. Lovely to walk around at your own pace taking it all in.

We decided to do straight after our visit to the Colosseum. We hadn’t appreciated though just how big the site was. You definitely could do with allowing a good few hours here. There’s lots of steps and uneven surfaces so be aware and wear appropriate footwear.
