  • An impressive Temple complex consisting of Divine Traian, Trajan's column, the Basilica Ulpia and big square with equestrian statue in the middle. The project was designed by Apollodorus of Damascus. For realization of this monumental complex was demolished pass, which combined territory of Capitol Hill to the Quirinal Palace. The Basilica Ulpia was composed of rectangular rooms the same size as the Basilica di San Paolo Fuori-le-Mura. It was divided into five aisles and opened the Forum by using the monumental entrance. The walls were covered with precious marble, and the ceiling was paved with tiles made of bronze. Statues and decorations did the Temple of one of the most magnificent ancient palaces.

  • Even if it's only some columns left of it that was once an ancient Roman basilica makes this place the impression to me. To think that I can walk here to see remnants from the Emperor the time in Rome, it is an experience. The Basilica Ulpia was named after the Emperor Trajan (Marcus Ulpius Traianus), but it had no known religious function. It was dedicated to law/law, trade and & just the presence of the emperor. This was the biggest Basilicaen in Rome and the roof should have been covered by gilded bronze tiles.

  • There put much imagination because he has gone much of this ancient building. One of the things that most surprised me is that the last column of the colonnade is located outside the fenced compound and is within the reach of the visitors and still holds the type.

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.
