Roman Forum

Ruins of a church right next to the Forum.

Overview of the Forum from Il Vittoriano, showing its relation to the Colosseum.

The Forum built into the hillside; it also spreads all over the valley.

The Church of San Lorenzo, once the Temple of the Empress Faustina.

Looking over the ruined columns, with the Colosseum at back left, the Forum entrance just to the left of that, and the Forum-impregnated hillside to the right.

The Temple of Saturn.

The Temple of Castor and Pollux.

Columns broken and crumbling at the edge of the Forum, by the Arch of Titus.

The Arch of Titus, through which victorious Roman soldiers would march the vanquished enemy into the Forum.

A shriney corner's remnant, by those broken columns.

Another part of the Forum.

Part of the Forum that directly borders active, non-ruined Rome.

As you can see, this part was once very important.

One final look at the remains of this once-great corner of the once-great Forum.
