About Roman Forum

Built in the 7th century BC, the Roman Forum was originally the burial ground of the Etruscans and later expanded into the heart of the Roman Republic. After the 4th century AD, the important position of the Roman Forum was gradually lost until it became a pasture, and a large amount of stone and marble were stolen for the construction of new palaces, churches and monuments. During the Renaissance, people rekindled old love for all classical things, and the square became the focus of attention of artists and architects. Beginning in the 18th century, people began systematically excavating the ruins of the square.

    Construction began in the 6th century B.C. until the end of the Western Roman Empire. A large number of religious and memorial buildings are concentrated in the square. The main part of the square is about 134 meters long and 63 meters wide. There is a Brazilian Lika (rectangular hall) on both sides for trial and assembly. The eastern end of the square is the Caesar Temple and the Arc de Triomphe of Augustus, and the western end is the parade stand and the Senate and the assembly hall in front of the northwest corner of another Arc de Triomphe Plaza of ancient Rome. The Caesar Temple and the Kitchen Temple and the Presbyterian Palace east of the Arc de Triomphe of Augustus are the religious centers. After the construction of Constantine Brasilica in the 4th century, the square expanded eastward and the Arc de Triomphe was built. There are also two temples in the early years of AD outside the parade desk at the western end. In the Middle Ages, several ancient Roman buildings were converted into churches. Since then, marble from ancient buildings has been continuously demolished for building or burning lime, so that apart from a few buildings, only ruins remain in the square complex. The excavation began at the end of the 18th century and was protected.

    A joint ticket to the Colosseum can be used to visit the Colosseum, the Plaza of Ancient Rome and Mount Palatini. Ancient Roman Square is very worthwhile. It's next to the Colosseum. If you want to take a panoramic view, you can stand on Mount Palatini. I don't tell him that the best angle to shoot is in Kabitorio Square. If you want to have a close look, it takes at least two hours. The building downloads an app that introduces the scenic spots. Otherwise, you really can't tell which one is the building corresponding to that scenic spot.

    Ancient Roman Square is the city center of the ancient Roman era. There are still some ruins of important buildings in the ancient Roman period. The buildings standing here are the Triumph of Titus, the Triumph of Augustus, the Triumph of Seville, the Temple of Caesar, the Temple of Kitchen, the Temple of Venus and the Temple of Rome. The gathering place of ancient Roman politics, religion, commerce, entertainment and other buildings can also be called "the ruins of ancient Rome". The city government of Rome deliberately retained the ruins and left precious cultural heritage for all mankind. This ruins of ancient Rome is like a large open-air museum. Visiting here, you can imagine the prosperity and prosperity of ancient Rome. Ancient Rome Square is not far from the Colosseum. It's only a short walk away.

    In October 2015, I came to Rome on a seven-day holiday. The ancient Roman Colosseum tickets already include the ancient Roman Square, and the day we went there, because the Colosseum was being maintained and renovated, the tickets were free. Although there are no complete buildings in the ruins, only broken walls and ruins can be seen, it is a miracle that more than 2,000 years ago the architecture experienced storms and storms and even existed in the world.

    But tourists who come to Rome know more or less the history and splendor of ancient Rome, and to see the relics of that time is also the most desirable thing for tourists. Coming to Rome, many places can see the relics of that year. I don't know if they were thousands of years ago. Some of them are interlaced with later and even modern buildings. What's more, a little bit of protection, to keep the show as it is. This is the case in the ancient Roman Square. Visitors can see the ruins of buildings thousands of years ago and imagine what they looked like. It's amazing that such a magnificent building could be built thousands of years ago. Walking in these buildings is like walking in that era. It feels amazing.

    Rome is full of historic sites. It is said that a subway line started ten years ago has not been built yet. The reason is that every foot dug touches the remains of ancient Rome from 2700 years ago. Only by visiting on the spot can we deeply feel the unparalleled brilliance. Roman Forum and Palatine are the most worthwhile places to visit. Every inch of soil, every stone, every inscription (though I don't know Italian) tells the story of history.

    It can best embody the architectural achievements and splendid civilization of the ancient Roman Empire. In the ruins of the huge Roman pillars, the Arc de Triomphe and the square ruins, the vicissitudes of history come upon us. This is also an example of the protection and utilization of Italian historical and cultural heritage. To Rome, you must walk in the ruins.

    The ticket to the Colosseum is a joint ticket. The Roman Square is very large. You can't walk for three or four hours without having many water points in it. It's very humanistic. It's suggested that the piglet interpreter is a pile of broken stones.

    Ancient Rome Square was the city center of ancient Rome, and now many of them are in ruins, but in detail, it still has the glory of that year. The square is very large. It takes two to three hours to walk through.

    Once the economic and political center of the ancient Roman Empire, there is an extraordinary history, most of the ruins can still be seen very delicate structure, momentum, let people yearn for the glory of the past Rome. It's sunny everywhere. There's no shade. It's well protected and worth visiting.
