We really enjoyed this site inside the Roman Forum. There are ruins of benches on the side to relax. Many statues also help us to appreciate what it was like there two thousand years ago.Don't miss it.
A visit to the Roman Forums in the city of Rome can be quite overwhelming for a first timer. There's just too much to see, too much history to take in, and sometimes you simply do not know where to start. A qualified guide is...More
With many benches placed in front of the statues in the garden area, this is the perfect place take a resting break at the Forum. I only managed to take in a small percentage of this house as I didn't make it to the top...More

If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
