This site is only accessible via special tour, but the evening light show is great. Just seeing the site lit up at night is nice. If you're on a budget, you can view from three road, but you won't get the audio commentary without a...More

An evening of light, sound and animation bringing the Augusto forum to life. Really interesting, well organised, informative and entertaining. Well worth doing.

Our Roman friend recommended this evening multimedia show. We all enjoyed it very much! It is a unique way to understand what the forum was, how it was constructed and the many stories surrounding it. Highly recommend.

Although not as impressive as the Roman Forum, the Forum of Augustus is still an interesting insight into Ancient Rome, the centre point of which is what remains of the Temple of Mars. What is special about the ruins however is that they are currently...More

Neat little stop that you will probably pass a dozen times while walking around in Rome. Great photo opportunity as well, unfortunately you cannot actually walk the site, you can only view it from afar. It's quite beautiful at night and well lit. Not much...More

These ruins are more damaged than other parts of Rome so while they are very interesting they are not as impressive as other sights in the area.

These shows are great and well worth your time. I recommend going to these shows at night and skipping the trip through these forums during the day. We tried to go without advance tickets but they were sold out. However, you can buy the tickets...More

This is NOT the forum next to the colosseum. It is by Trajens column. It is across from the Foro di cesare. They were connected until a road was put in. They both offer a nightly multi media show that shouldn't be missed. You can...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
