Trajan's Market, Rome

(4.1/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Trajan's Market houses more than 40,000 pieces of ancient architecture from the Roman Empire's Forum district. Ongoing research projects at the museum painstakingly attempt to recreate the original structures. Specialists replace missing fragments with plaster molding and add original colors, so you can view the pieces as they looked in the Roman Empire's heyday. All five complexes, or Imperial Forums, were built chronologically over 159 years. Each represents a different period of the empire, beginning with Caesar. Consider purchasing the Roma Pass before your visit. This card provides discounted entrance into a number of prominent sites in Rome, and the first two attractions will be free.

  • Interesting and amazing on the inside. There is a small museum and visitation allows us to feel in the middle of the Roman Empire. As the first shopping center and commercial and business centre. Valley get the audio guide to enjoy more the visit. Loved it!

  • This is an extraordinary complex which is beautifully laid out and explained. It sits to the right as you face Trajan's column and was part of Trajan's forum and because it was so useful has survived ...  more »
  • At night, perfectly lit, dreaming, thinking about how it was to be the life of Rome before Christ. Very nice in terms of history, but also very romantic. Seeing is believing

  • Amazing to see the shadows of an ancient civilisation. If you go during the night they put on a light show and project images onto the walls!
  • Beautiful ruin. Easy to imagine a bustling, active area. Only go in if you have extra time and money, otherwise just view from the outside on your way to more significant ruins. Very nice at night as well.
  • Just don't visit it. View from outside is so much better. And so many of museum's items are just copies - you can see much better copies on streets. Yet the price is high. The tower looks cool, though. But there is no access! And, again, the view from outside is better.
  • A place of history in the area around the Roman forum. Easy to get there.
  • Good, but don't miss the museums around the further for a better understanding
