A walk around the Roman Forum is to glimpse into the founding of the ancient Roman Empire – from marshland the Romans drained the area and turned it into a centre of political and social activity.The Forum was the marketplace of Rome, and later a gathering space for triumphal processions, criminal trials and gladiatorial matches.

The natural flow of a visit is to exit the Roman Forum at the Colosseum end of the site. There are also exits at the Capitoline Hill end of the site, but again no entrance.

The Palatine Hill towering above you is also linked both ways to the Roman Forum.

The ticket kiosk at the Colosseum has by far the longest queues; we suggest you start and buy your ticket at the Palatine Hill entrance.

The Forum was then abandoned some time in the Middle Ages, and over time, buried under layers of earth, becoming a pasture known as Campus Vaccinus.

Some temples were transformed into churches, allowing their preservation in the course of time.
