About Roman Forum

Referred to by ancient Rome’s citizens as the “Forum Magnum”, this collection of ruins in the city’s centre was once the hub of public life and contains some of the civilisations most important government and religious buildings. It was here that trials were held, processions and gladiatorial matches took place, together with the comings and goings of commercial activities, making it one of the world’s greatest archaeological sites.

The Roman Forum is located in a small valley between the Palatine and Capitoline Hills and today features numerous building and monument ruins in varying stages of archaeological excavation. From the Largo della Salara Vecchia entrance, the 2nd century Tempio di Antonino e Faustina stands on the left, transformed into a church during the 8th century, while on the right stands the Basilica Fulvia-Aemilia with its impressive porticoed facade. The Forum’s main thoroughfare, the Via Sacra, is home to the Tempio di Giulio Cesare where the noted politician and author was cremated, together with an early 20th century reconstruction of the Curia, the original seat of the Roman Senate. The Arco di Settimio Severo stands at the end of the Via Sacra, built in the early 3rd century to commemorate the Roman victory over the Parthians, while the Colonna di Foca rises within what was the Forum’s main square, Piazza del Foro. The largest building within the forum is the Basilica di Massenzio, finished in 315AD by Constantine, while the 6th-century Chiesa di Santa Maria Antiqua stands as its oldest Christian church.

The Roman Forum is best accessed from the Fori Imperiali bus stop, which is just a short walk from the entrance. The ruins themselves need to be explored on foot, but it’s worth taking either a guide or an information booklet to help place each of the ruins in context.

The Roman Forum was originally developed in the 7th century BC on the site of an Etruscan burial ground and grew to become the political, social and economic heart of the Roman Empire. Following the empire’s fall, the Forum declined into disrepair and eventually became pastureland known as the Campo Vaccino, or “Cow Field”, with much of the stone and marble used in its construction plundered
