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.

Skip the Line: Colosseum Small Group Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
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.

An excellent tour around these amazing ancient ruins. Our tour guide Lumi was incredibly knowledgeable and humorous and the pace was kept just right for a tour underneath a scorching August sun. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Tour
Our tour guide Sandre was exceptional. His love and knowledge of history came thru as he explained how the Colosseum was built, used and preserved. We were shocked to find out how many years and how many people it took to build. We would definitely recommend Viator to family and friends. As the day was extremely hot Sandre tried to keep us in the shade whenever it was possible.

Small-Group Colosseum Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
On one of the hottest days in Rome, Cristina made the tour exciting, interesting, and fun! She has a wealth of knowledge and provided a lot of historical context of what we were seeing. She also showed several photos to complement her explanations. The tour consisted of Colosseum 1st and 2nd level, arch of Constantine, palatine hill, and Roman forum. Can’t wait to come back!

Skip the Line: Colosseum Small Group Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
Excellent and very thorough tour! Our guide, Vasco, was terrific. Very easy to listen to and understand, was very good at having us all participate in conversation on all we were seeing and learning. 90 minutes were spent in the Coliseum and 90 minutes out on Palatine Hill and the Forum. Free time after the tour to explore further. Make sure you eat a good meal beforehand and bring water to refuel - the heat can be brutal! Don't miss the meeting point above the entry/exit of the Metro!

Small-Group Colosseum Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
Wow! Dario (I think that was his name) was excellent! The best we’ve had throughout traveling Europe. He was very very knowledgeable, but also hilarious. Could do a side job as a comedian if he wanted. Kept all of us in tune with the history of Rome. If you happen to get him as a guide, consider yourself lucky.

Overall, not bad. When dealing with people from multiple cultures, guide needs to be a bit more sensitive. Being from SE PA I understand that humor, but could be misinterpreted. Very knowledgeable

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.
