    One of the biggest buildings of Imperial Rome, had to accept the judicial activity of the urban prefect. The building partly collapsed with the earthquake of IX century and later used as a quarry of materials for new construction.

  • This ruin of the old basilica is massive, the entire thing would have been enormous. Check it out!
  • Super impressed by the size of what remains of this important building of the Roman Empire legislative power
  • Nice ancient church. The tallest building in the Roman Forum, must have been spectacular in its day!
  • Very impressive, far bigger than i had imagine!
  • hard to imagine how over powering it looked like when it was intact.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
