Roman Forum

Roman Forum with Palatine Hill in
the background.

The Roman Forum (Forum Romanum) was an area of the central ancient Rome in which commerce, business, trading and the administration of justice took place.

It is now famous for the remains, which eloquently describe us the use of urban spaces during the Roman Age, and the term collectively indicates also all the monuments, buildings and other ancient ruins that were found.

The principal Forum has been identified in the area comprised between the Capitoline Hill and the Colosseum, but others did exist in other areas of the town.
