Museo e Foro Romano, Assisi

4.3
#1 of 8 in Museums in Assisi
Fronted by towering Corinthian columns, Museo e Foro Romano showcases ancient classical architecture and houses a small interior church. Stop by the grand temple, wedged in between more modern Italian buildings, and marvel at its solid construction and pristine facade, preserved intact from its creation during the first century BCE. Make your way through the stately row of pillars to the church within and you'll be greeted by the ornate decorations, rich paintings, and shimmering gold accents that adorn the walls and ceiling. This inner section was refurbished and modified during the Baroque period in the 17th century.

    The exhibition reconstructs the old Roman square of Assisi, now literally covered by current square. The exhibition themselves numerous gravestones and sarcophagi from the Roman period, as well as some original elements of ancient Roman square. Visit interesting also to understand how the Temple of Minerva was bin in the ancient square prior to the medieval structures.

    When you arrive in the square and see this former Roman temple turned into a church, you seem to be catapulted back into history. It is without a doubt a place to visit!

    In the civic square in ancient Roman Minerva Temple turned Church, located in the heart of the city, Alberto was located. The Interior had become Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. I was astonished and couldn't imagine from the exterior into a church.

  • Amazingly extensive underground passages that run along one edge of the old Roman forum, on front of the temple of Minerva. Well displayed stone fragments, tombs, columns, inscriptions. Interesting video ... sadly, only in Italian, with no subtitles.
  • I first visited the Roman Forum x, I have to say it was very interesting, thank goodness that when you walk in they give you a map x understand how was and its functionality. On the main road there is still an original Roman bath house. You can tell when you enter visit the Forum. Continuing the way we meet the Museum, which unfortunately in my opinion is not heavily visited, because people go to visit the Cathedral of St. Francis which lies at the end of this road. A very nice Museum, with interesting paintings. If you go from Assisi can visit ave art gallery

  • is the small part of Assisi underground that you can visit easily. get off a few meters and go back 2000 years when squares were not surrounded by buildings but open to the view of the Valley and the mountains.

  • Assisi is not only San Francisco, but right downtown, in the Town Hall square is another interesting attraction is the Roman Forum that along with the Museum gives a nice overview of what was once an important centre in Roman times. Tickets cost 4 euros
