The Roman Forum is considered one of the world's oldest archeological monuments. Its ancient ruins date back to 500 B.C., yet many remnants appeared there later during the reign of such emperors as Julius and Augustus Caesar, Domitian, and Trajan. The most prominent attractions of the Roman Forum are the Curia which used to be the center of the Roman Senate, numerous ancient temples including one with the funeral altar of Julius Caesar, the Arch of Titus, and the House and Temple of the Vestals. Undoubtedly, the best season to visit the Forum is late spring and early summer when the hills are covered with wild poppies. Don't miss this unique and beautiful sight!
