Our great Forum Magnum is the center of day-to-day life, not just for our wonderful Capital, but for the entirety of our glorious Empire, nay, the entirety of the world! The triumphal processions and elections here are beautiful affairs as are the frequent public speeches. There is no state greater than ours, and the political practice on display in this great Forum Magnum is the best evidence of that. Here, also, is the site of many important criminal trials and glorious gladiatorial matches, filled with more drama and excitement than any pansy play put on by those damned Greeks. Most importantly, of course, our great Forum Magnum is the nucleus of commercial affairs where traders from every corner of the world come to do their business. All roads lead to Rome after all! Throughout our great Forum Magnum, magnificent statues and monuments commemorate the city's, nay, the world's greatest men, painstakingly handcrafted by the world's greatest sculptors. The teeming heart of ancient Rome, our great Forum Magnum has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history! Truer words were never spoken. HAIL CAESAR!
Corr blimey! The history here is so varied from century to century. You could spend a full day just wandering around. One bonus is that you aren't pestered by street sellers as they'd have to pay to get in. Monuments, Gardens, statues, temples, etc, etc. The view across the city from one point is breathtaking. Wonderful place, if you appreciate the immense historicity and beauty of the area.
Parts of the Forum are still well preserved and worth the walking it takes to discover them. Standing at ground level among these ruins is the only way to fully appreciate their enormity. At least once, take a couple hours to explore the nooks and crannies of every path. In October of 2018, the Rome Pass got us into a fairly quick-moving line, but was even more valuable for its free 3-day bus/metro pass.
Take a walk through history! This place has some amazing sights towards the top of the hill, and on ground level you have some amazing ruins. Sometimes in Rome it's nice to walk at your own pace, but for the Roman Forum I really do suggest a guide to make sure you get all the information on the historical significance of what you are seeing. Looking back at my visit, I wish I chosen a guided tour!
So great! So much history and definitely somewhere you should visit if you're in Rome. Expect to spend a few hours here and if you can, hire a tour guide. There are some that will do tours for both the forum and Colosseum which makes for a full day of excellent sight-seeing.
