#27 of 255 in Historic Sites in Rome
Ruin Historic Site
Named for the founder of the Roman Empire and its first emperor, Foro di Augusto stands as an example of imperial forum architecture in the heart of the former empire. Construction of the forum, built to honor Mars and to carry out legal proceedings, began around 20 BCE. The millennia-old building remains today as ruins, including several well-preserved columns. With little information posted to explain the significance of the building, make sure to do your research or hire a tour guide to gain the full sightseeing experience.

  • Não restou muita coisa, mas contem muita historia! É mais bonito a noite, quando as luzes se acendem! As fotos a seguir, são de todo o "Fori Imperiali" (Foro di Augusto, foro di Traiano e foro di nerva) Fica bem na praca principal de Roma, então nao tem como voce nao ver!
  • They use projection to reconstruct the Forum to its former glory. Quite spectacular indeed.
  • We enjoyed this every time we walked through. I definitely recommend the night show. They project a light show against the ruins that brings everything to life. Design, construction, duration, use... How imposing and impressive it was... All plays out on front of you. Multiple languages are supported and it was a real value when we did it. This entire area is rich with artifacts from fora. It's will worth the time to soak in the history of the place.
  • me and my buddo went to dis plase and it was extreemlay exsiteng
  • During night hours it had a projection of history videos on top of it's beautiful architecture. very nice place to go.

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.
