Trajan's Market, Rome
(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. To visit Trajan's Market on your trip to Rome, use our Rome tour planner.

  • The night walk didn't stop to admire the greatness of Rome, who built and created but especially the genius of the Romans. Travel along ancient streets of paving and soak in what used to be the Moon craft is an emotion to be missed, especially for someone like me, it's Roman. Statues, busts, the remains and also the only walls build return to a lavish and rich past, made piece, of a pain but also of enormous strength. Ancient artifacts that tell us about every metre, their history, their suffering and their willingness to be there still, despite everything, despite the weather. Too bad for those rooms full of unexposed finds that could still help to make us dream the past while being in the present.

  • It is impressive it is amazing what developed was the roman society 2000 years ago. Great marvels in construction and in architecture. 
  • The ruins of the Trajan's market, with about of 1900 years old, transformed into a museum well maintained and adapted to the times today. With incredible lighting. I suggest the walk from the Coliseum and this point.

  • 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
