    If you visit Zaragoza, I believe that there are three essential plans: route Caesaraugusta, the basilica of El Pilar and tapas by "El Tubo". En route, I recommend going first to the Forum Museum, and purchase a pass that applies to the four museums and visit the 4 places. This pass costs € 7, and taking into account how well prepared they are visits with their audiovisual projections, the price is more than reasonable. There are also reduced rates and exemptions for various groups, retirees, students, teachers... We have made all the visits in one morning.

    The Museum was founded directly on the ruins of the Roman Forum and fully located underground below the modern level of the square. Well-intended, but remains the impression of incompleteness and understatement. The ceiling over the ruins clearly limits the space, namely it is the main advantage of Roman constructions of its kind. Here is the impression of a dark medieval dungeons.

    An overwhelming experience these excavations, the guard told me about the pressing of olives. He later told about the water collection and drain through the cloacas, also there is another portion of about where you can take a look, via a gate at the lowest level. There also showcases with excavations, models and recontructies. I have also enjoyed the film images here and there!!!

  • Wow, what a grand presentation of this historical site. Very impressive underground museum showing both remains of the Roman Forum and archaeological finds from the dig up.
  • Well presented ruins in the middle of Zaragoza. Gives a good sense of the origins of the city along with daily life during Roman rule. Plan on 2 or so hours to see the four sites. Only negative is that the video presentations were Spanish only.
  • The city has gone to considerable expense to expose it's Roman past. This site is one of 4 in the neighborhood. Very much worthwhile seeing if you're interested in the Roman past.
  • Get the five museum option for 9E (four of Roman period) and go see them all!
  • Clear info and representative elements of Roman remains in Zaragoza

Where to stay in Zaragoza

When visiting this historical city, most visitors opt to stay in the old quarter, or Casco Viejo, for its convenient proximity to many of the city's iconic landmarks and compact network of local eateries, shops, and traditional architecture. The old quarter is located along the Ebre River meaning that you are only a scenic waterfront stroll away from the rest of the city's buzzing neighborhoods. Several newer hotels are located in the commercial zone centered around Gran Via, one of the city's main arteries, where plenty of shops and well-known restaurants line the buzzing streets. Alternatively, head to the University district for a mix of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and a vibrant nightlife, where accommodation tends to be a bit cheaper.
