2/42.- Rome, Foro Romano

Menu

From the Colosseum, a big avenue --Av. Fori Imperiali-- takes us to the biggest collection of Roman Ruins in the world: the 'Foro Romano'. Where we can admire the rests of the constructions in the times of Julius Cesar, Augustus, Traian, Nerva and Vespusian.

As you can see in the photo, not much remains of the old Roman buildings. Even the biggest empire of all times could not last for ever --something a current software empire owner seems to ignore. Some of the most famous buildings are: the Curia --or Senate House, which is one of the oldest buildings in the area--, The Comitium --or assembly place--, The Temple of Saturn, the Temple of Castor and Polux --which celebrates the Roman rebellion against the Etruscan King--, the House of the Vestal Virgins--the Vestal Virgins were among the most respected people in Ancient Rome, but if one lost her virginity was buried alive--, The Domus Augustana --used as the empire headquarters--, among many others buildings.

Let’s visit the 'Foro di Traiano' ...
