Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • We used our roma pass to visit - informative museum in the beginning and then it is outside to the ruins! Interesting to see but for us, not sure the correct directions to navigate the entire place......  read more »
  • You do not have to pay the exorbitant entrance fee for Trajan's Market. You can see almost all of the site from outside, for free. (Trajan's Forum is a different site, located next door.) The items in...  read more »
  • The archaeological complex is very large, majestic, imposing, transports you back in time and lets you measure with the past. Permanent houses the Museo dei Fori imperiali (statues, Gables, reliefs, sarcophagi) and exhibitions and installations. At the moment there is Made in Rome, brands and ownership in ancient society, until November 20, 2016. You can see so daily working life aspects of artisans and people who produced the most varied objects of the Roman world (including the drops of a doctor). There is also a beautiful garden and a breathtaking view of the city going upstairs.

  • It's one of the most important site of the Roman Empire. There, you can also see Traian's Column and the Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II. It's located right in the center of Rome. From there, or from the Colloseum you can take a walk (scenic route) or a carriage (for the lazy ones) to Fontana di Trevi. You can see magnificent old structures, folks from all over the world, lots of color.
  • 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.
  • Great little museum, and while I don't know how I feel about granting limited access to paying customers to historical sites, the forum is really nice.
  • The Fori Imperiali is one of the most attractive and important site of the Roman Empire site . It is in tne center of Rome easy to get there and visit. You can see the ancient houses , streets and constructio where romans were used to live and commerce . This plec bring you in the ancient roman life and let you immagine how people life was. You can lose your eyes and immagine people working , artigians,shops and more. Visiting Rome you cannot forget to visit this historical site.
  • It's called the market but in fact was mainly intended to headquarters administrative activities related to the Fori Imperiali, and only to a limited extent in commercial activities
