Neat little stop that you will probably pass a dozen times while walking around in Rome. Great photo opportunity as well, unfortunately you cannot actually walk the site, you can only view it from afar. It's quite beautiful at night and well lit. Not much...More

These ruins are more damaged than other parts of Rome so while they are very interesting they are not as impressive as other sights in the area.

These shows are great and well worth your time. I recommend going to these shows at night and skipping the trip through these forums during the day. We tried to go without advance tickets but they were sold out. However, you can buy the tickets...More

This is NOT the forum next to the colosseum. It is by Trajens column. It is across from the Foro di cesare. They were connected until a road was put in. They both offer a nightly multi media show that shouldn't be missed. You can...More

One of the later forums can only be viewed from outside. Like the other imperial forums, it is not well studied.

You find this place at Forum Romanum. No question, you have to visit it. It's absolutely amazing. 14 euro for Forum Romanum and the Colosseum together

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
