Roman Forum
website

This is where Romulus founded the city of Rome and where it all happened—the former marshland was reclaimed in the 7th century to become the epicenter of social, religious, political, and administrative life. The archaeological site was lined with ancient temples that doubled as financial areas, podiums for discourses, a senate meeting place, a private imperial ramp, vestal virgin house, mythological fountains, houses, and more. Walk up the Palatine hill to view the ruins of lavish imperial palaces and make an appointment for a walk through the House of Augustus. Note that the particular ruins within the forum aren't marked, so you may want to go with a guide to get a deeper understanding of the history.
