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.

Rome, Italy is full of history. one of the best ways to view the city is on a bike tour. You can see parts of the city that are off the regular tourist path and also spend quality time with your family. It will give you chills to actually see the buildings were history was made so very long ago. #givethanks #familytravel #familyvacation #historicallandmarks #romeitaly
A few highlights of the Roman Forum:
1. Arch of Titus: This is the oldest arch building in Rome, built by Domitian in AD 81. In commemoration of his brother Titus and his father Vespa first settled the Jewish rebellion. (ie, the destruction of the temple in the Bible)
2. Anthony's shelter and the Temple of Fortuna: This was built by Anthony Shelter in 41 AD for his wife, Fostina, who was worshipped as God. It is also the best temple to save. Because of the baroque tops on the top, there is an uncoordinated visual impact on the temple.
3. The Senate: This 3rd-century Senate still retains the original multi-colored mosaic floor, 300-year-old and sits on the steps of the state affairs and the podium of the speaker.
4. Sacred Way: The oldest road in Rome is paved with flat black basalt, and the Arc de Triomphe of Titus is passing through the ancient Roman market to Mount Capitoli. The heroes of the Roman Republic were marching here when they returned to the triumph, but they gradually fell and became the gathering place for pickpockets and tramps.
5.Maxentis and the Emperor's Hall of Constantine: There are three large arched arches, which are said to be the largest in ancient Rome. They were built in 315 and are the Roman Empire. Legal and financial center.
On the right side of the Colosseum is the Arch of Constantine, which bypasses the Arc de Triomphe to the back, the road to the Palatino Hill, next to the ruins of the Roman Forum. At first glance, the white building in Piazza Venezia is not far ahead. Most of the temples now have only the remaining Greek columns. Although the distance is very close, it takes a while for each attraction to take a tour. For those who want to visit carefully, it is best to rent an interpreter or follow a guided tour. Overlooking the surrounding Colosseum, Piazza Venezia and ancient Roman ruins, the view is good.
Rome, an ancient name, is known as the "city of the city" because of its glorious history, the glory of the Roman Empire, and the supremacy of the Catholic Church constitute the glory of Rome for nearly 2,500 years.
Rome is one of the birthplaces of world culture. It has deposited thousands of years of historical sites and has a rich cultural heritage. It was built on seven hills between the Taipo River and was revived after several destructions. The ancient Roman ruins are large in scale, and they are imaginative and lingering.
The ancient city of Rome is like a giant open-air historical museum. Every step is stepped on countless historical stories. On the ruins of the ancient capital of Rome, the world famous temples such as the Imperial Senate, the Arc de Triomphe, the Jigongzhu, the Pantheon and the Grand Arena are standing. Historic sites; there are many fine architecture and fine art from the Renaissance.
