  • Impressive! Hands down the biggest building on the Forum. I would love to see a visualisation of the whole thing and learn it's full story. And yet tours seems to ignore it altogether.
  • The view is great, but late-night tourist have a terrible time accessing the site. So sad!
  • Incredibly awesome. I took a tour that included the Ruins along with the Colosseum. It was totally worth it. Several hours of walking so make sure that you were comfortable shoes.
  • One of the oldest church in Rome
  • it's amazing to see these ancient Roman sites still standing
