Overview
More
The Markets of Trajan are an archaeological complex of uniqueness in Rome, perhaps even worldwide. They represent an area that has experienced the evolution of the city from the imperial age to today; an area that has been constantly recycled and transformed. The markets once the strategic administrative centre of the Imperial Forums, successively became a noble residence, a military fortress, a prestigious convent and a barracks... a continuous evolution.

Worth a visit anyway but, combined with the temporary exhibition "Trajan. Building the Empire, creating Europe", it's an awesome experience.

Another impressive survivor, with massive walls. Possibly the first shopping mall. The museum part is somewhat limited. At 15 euros each, it seems too expensive for what it is.
