Roman Forum (Foro Romano)

Largo Romolo e Remo, Rome, 00186

The Basics

The site is most often visited on three-hour tours that combine a visit to the ancient city with a Colosseum tour. Whether you choose a private tour or small-group tour, it's wise to visit with an expert guide who can help you navigate the large space and bring the ruins to life with true stories of gladiators, Roman emperors, and Julius Caesar. After your visit, check out the adjacent ruins at Circus Maximus or pay a visit to the Capitoline Museums to see the display of classical Roman empire sculptures.

Great tour
Dmitry was a great guide. Most of the tour is spent in the Colosseum with the last hour spent at Palatine hill. You can walk around the forum on your own for as long as you want.

A bit chaotic at the begining, and early part of tour due to very large group of 44 people. However, I understand Covid was the issue with this problem. Star of the show Serena our guide was brilliant, so professional & informative.

Sylvia, our tour guide was amazing. She was knowledgeable and funny. A pleasure to meet her. Sorry we had to leave before the end, my daughter was sick. They did add more people to the tour, ended up being a large group of 50 due to your guides being sick 😷 with COVID.

Fast Track: Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum Tour
The tour was good, but it was very hot. We did not go into the Forum area (too hot) but the tour of the Palatine Hill and the Colosseum were good. The guide jumped around a bit, talking of different times in the history, which was sometimes confusing and the ear phone/ radio ser up was challenging from time to time.

George the tour guide was great. The office staff seemed a bit pushy to get you out of the office. For spending over $100 I would appreciate a bit more courtesy.

Skip the Line Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Tour with Pick-up
Great tour leader and excellent information shared. Good pace. Heat and crowds were awful, but leader did a great job navigating both and pointing out water sources and toilette opportunities along the way. This tour doesn't have you enter the arena where the gladiators entered (in case that's important to you). Would definitely recommend.

When to Get There

As the Roman Forum shares an admission ticket with the Colosseum, it stays consistently busy throughout the day and often has long lines. Choose a walking tour with priority access to jump the queue and maximize your time.

Discovering the Roman Forum Ruins

Inside the archaeological area, stick to the Forum’s main thoroughfare, Via Sacra, to pass by important ruins such as the Julia Curia and the house of the Vestal Virgins. Some of the forum’s most impressive ruins include the white marble arch of Settimio Severo, the first-century Arch of Titus, and the remains of the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine. If you can’t get enough of ancient Rome, there’s plenty more history just outside the city with day trips available to Pompeii and the Appian Way.
