About these ratings

Not as popular as the Colosseum (but located nearby), some say the Roman Forum is more interesting (and free!). The Roman Forum comprises much of the Ancient Rome's most important structures, from shrines to government houses to monuments. Although much of the complex is in ruins, you can see the remains and imagine the former glory of the Arch of Septimius Severus, the Temple of Saturn, the Arch of Titus and the House of the Vestal Virgins, among other structures.

Consider paying for an audio guide, which gives context and color to the Roman Forum ruins. Some travelers even recommend paying a bit more for a guided tour. The Forum is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
