Foro di Augusto, Rome
(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. Put Foro di Augusto on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Rome vacation route planner.

  • 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.
  • Ruins of an once great building. Looks like any other ruins but once you have an illustration book of how it used to looks like. It will keep you wants to know more. Hint: Subura
  • Nice little set of ruins hidden away from the city, make sure you pass by this one to see it if you're near the Collesum or Roman Forum.
  • Stunning location just up the road from the coliseum but go to the venue at night with the light show projected the Walla for a magnificent experience
  • 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.
