We combined the Colosseum and the Roman Forum with our tour with What a Life Tours. It was the perfect combo. It can get quite hectic there, so having a guide is wonderful. We needed our tour up on Palatine Hill which looks over Rome. The sun was starting to set so it was so beautiful! Just know if you go alone in the afternoon it will be beyond packed with people!

Hay más que ver aquí que en Coliseo. Es impresionante y vale la pena visitar.
There is more to see here than in the Coliseum. It is impressive and worth a visit.

Very interesting to learn about what different ruins were 2000+ years ago. Would recommend a tour guide to inform you about what everything was to get a full understanding.

These are a series of monumental constructed in Rome over a period of one and a half centuries, between 46 BC and 113 AD. The forums were the center of the Roman life. Distance: 12 minutes by walk.

Examining the Roman Forum is an amazing experience but it can be exhausting. We went in the middle of summer and it was hard to enjoy the history around us because of how unbelievably hot it was. Definitely worth visiting, but in the middle of the summer I would recommend going in the morning before it can get too hot.

The Roman Forum was the center of ancient Rome - the place of commerce, trade, and politics. Today, the ruins still standing offer an enjoyable tour through ancient history - as well as spectacular views from the top of the ancient aqueduct. Entrance is included with a ticket to the Colosseum.

The Roman Forum is a large rectangular area close to the Colosseum featuring a number of Roman remains, temples, columns, arches, etc. There are plenty of signs to explain the various structures you can see.

The Roman Forum ("Foro Romano") is much less crowded than the Colosseum and, from a historical perspective, much more interesting. To stand in the political, legal and religious centre of the whole Roman Empire brings shivers down one's spine. It is the best way of imagining the splendour and glory of ancient Rome.

Located in a small valley between the Capitoline and Palatine hills (quite on the side of Colosseum), access to the Forum is by foot only. Wheelchair access is available for most of the Forum but be aware that the path is often bumpy due to it containing original stones from the ancient Roman period. The Forum is often less crowded than the neighboring Coliseum, but holds even more history. Summer M-Sa 09:00-18:00, winter 09:00-15:00, year-round Su 09:00-13:00. €12 and the ticket is valid for two days and includes entrance to the Colosseum and Palatine Hill as well. (Tip: It is possible to hire an audioguide for €4 from a small booth just above the Arch of Titus near the Coliseum. These audioguides contain an audio jack meaning that two people can easily share one.)

If you live in Rome you could pass every day on the road next to this area, where ancient and magnificent ruins are still standing. It is a magical place, enlighted by the morning sun and embraced by the sunset.a must see in the city

The Roman Forum is pretty impressive. It helps you get a sense for what every day life used to look like back in the day in Rome. I really enjoyed wandering around the ruins. It's definitely worth visiting the Roman Forum when you're in Rome.
