Il Foro Romano (The Roman Forum)

Your trip to Rome must include a visit to the Roman Forum. Once the center of the Roman world, the Foro Romano became an abandoned cow pasture and quarry. Lucky for us, this abandonment enabled the preservation of the urban design of the Forum as the foundation of buildings and the roads were covered and protected for hundreds of years. Plan for a long visit, there is much to see and to explore. Walking along the Via Sacra on which so many Roman parades took place and contemplating the exact spot on which Julius Caesar was cremated is an unequaled living history experience.
