4.5/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This forum is very nice, the ruins, streets, temples, all. It is one of the things that there are to visit in Rome.

  • I brought my kids (9-7) to witness this majestic event, as a birthday gift to my daughter loves history. An immersive experience and high standard both entertainment history. Finally someone decided to enhance part of the monstrous archaeological heritage of the capital. This show goes well beyond the price paid, giving the viewer the possibility to dive for almost an hour in the realities of Imperial Rome, finally offering a clue to what is otherwise just an expanse of ruins scattered on either side of a road. Magnificent!

  • Recommended to those who like ancient Rome. Is plain fact (because Rome is great too), what immense historical value. It is near the Roman Forum.

  • A good place to see the iconic Roman pillars. Still in decent shape and a couple of them almost within reaching distance, it's sure to give you an idea of the influence of the Roman Empire
  • Great place to come to at night when the light show is on. There are seats so you can sit and take in what was once here. There are some columns left and a board with some history of the area. Musicians will be there at night as well.
  • Because the Forum and Temple are well-lit, they're a perfect spot for a scenic view and to read the accompanying short historical summaries after the sun has gone down.
  • Less busy than the colosseum, extremely beautiful.
  • Very picturesque, size of the place is amazing.
