  • It is not difficult to understand that this was the largest and most impressive building in the Forum, the enormous great remains standing here today reminds us of that. should have been Walls covered by gilded bronze tiles and the floor should have been covered by marble in different colors and patterns, like the floor of the Pantheon.

  • From the entrance from the direction of Colosseum, you will pass in the Roman Forum at the Basilica of Maxentius. The enormous building is one of the most impressive buildings of antiquity. Always amazing what the ancient Romans have built. You have the best overview of the opposite Palatine.

  • Halfly preserved remains of huge roman basilica, you can recognize in the dome concrete, "coffer" elements similar of those in Pantheon which explains how it survived for so long. The biggest roman structure that can be seen on Forum.
  • Gargantuan building leaves you wondering how such a feet was possible thousands of years ago.
  • This place is so big, but many people miss it! Check this one out
  • Apparently this used to be an ancient Roman bank, or at least the tour guide said so, and he claimed to have made everything up.
  • 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.
