Forum of Augustus, Rome

4.7
#29 of 527 in Historic Sites in Rome
Named for the founder of the Roman Empire and its first emperor, Forum of Augustus 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. You can plan Rome trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Lives up to all the expectation. A real must see if you are a history buff, goosebumps looking at all the ruins, the history screams out and it really must be seen to be believed.  more »
  • This, like so many of Rome's historic place, make me feel the mood. Unbelievable that N 2000 v then when Finland was just a favor and a forest, then the Roman society did so with convincing beasts! Eyes closed and return to history!

  • The most amazing thing to do in Rome! Take the time, go to buy the tickets there. Great way to really picture what the ruins looked like in ancient times. Video, sound. Astounding
  • did the even light show. really informative, worth the ticket price and a good start to getting the down low on the start of the empire. one thing like all Italian museum visits the language used is overly clunky, official and incomprehensible but still good.
  • Cool place on the side of the main road. Good viewpoints from above and lots of signs in both Italian and English explaining both the history of the building and some facts about it's excavation.
  • Absolutely amazing! The ruins are not in a perfect shape but they are still impressive and spread the feeling of Rome. The show that is here in the evening is also amazing cause it shows you and explains you how it looked in its glorious times and learns you something about Roman Empire
  • Personally, I loved the evening projection show. Might be a little slow for kids but if you're a fan of a history, you'll definitely enjoy
