Things to know about Roman Forum

The Roman Forum (or Forum Romanum), was for over a thousand years the political, commercial and religious centre of ancient Rome: in this glorious plaza, triumphal processions and elections took place, marketplaces were held and the Senate assembled for debates and public speeches.
 
Built in the 7th Century BC, the area has seen several buildings of any kind, progressively constructed and demolished over the centuries: that is why today, the archeological site looks like a sprawling set of ruins that includes monuments of immeasurable cultural and historical value.
 
A stroll around the Roman Forum is a must for those who want to have a glimpse of the opulence and the magnificence of the ancient Rome age.
