  • Very impressive structure that would be great to seen rebuilt...unique structure and height, breathtaking!  more »
  • Majestically imposing structure, begun under Maxentius and finished by Constantine in the early fourth century, visible from everywhere in the Forum area. Beautiful octagonal coffered pattern vaults. Not to be missed!

  • One of the most famous and impressive buildings of ancient Rome began its construction under Maxentius but ended under Constantine (other name by which is known) that moved the main entrance from the Colosseum to the Via Sacra, whose façade was a niche that housed the statue itself. Constantine, who now stands in the courtyard of the Palazzo dei Conservatori. The covering slabs of gilded bronze was lost because it was merged to cover the original Saint Peter's Basilica in the seventh century after Christ. Today the work of the Metro C does not allow you to observe it well, especially the side of Via dei Fori Imperiali

  • Very impressive, far bigger than i had imagine!
  • Nice ancient church. The tallest building in the Roman Forum, must have been spectacular in its day!
  • Simply amazing - the size this must have been when intact
  • One of the few well-preserved parts of a basilica!
  • A truly massive ruin. It's especially impressive when you consider that only a portion it remains standing; the rest has been lost to time. For safety reasons you can't walk beneath the high arched ceiling, but when standing just a few meters away you'll certainly be able to appreciate the structure's grandeur.
