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.

Tickets Colosseum and Roman Forum with Multimedia Video
We had tickets for Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine hill, Vatican museum and Sistine chapel and I really recommend all of this iconic places. I just want to say that lady in tourist office was really friendly and help as a lot to plan how to visit all of these places, as we were really short with time and we travel with two babies and we had to make covid test before tours (she also help us with that), so without her help we wouldn't see all of these places :)

Colosseum Underground and Roman Forum Tour
Our tour guide Lucia was wonderful. This tour was exactly what we were hoping for. Everyone involved in the tour was super helpful. Highly recommend. We would suggest to eat before the tour. It did sneak into lunch time due to late start (covid hours)

Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum Guided Tour | Skip the Line Tickets
We really enjoyed our tour with Zenda—it was incredible and so worth it to be able to go into the colosseum dungeons, which is the main reason we booked a tour, and to have someone help explain what it is we were looking at. The meeting instructions were a little out of date from pre-Covid and it would be worthwhile to update as we had some difficulty finding our tour, but we would definitely still recommend and enjoyed our experience. Thank you!

Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum, Palatine Hill & Gladiator Arena
Excellent tour with a very smart and knowledgeable guide. She was well-prepared and also navigated new COVID-19 restrictions and processes with finesse, making for a very smooth experience. Highly recommend! That said, we hoped to go to the top of Palatine Hill, and we did not. It was just pointed out from below in the Forum. I believe it depends on which guide you have.

Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum, Palatine Hill & Gladiator Arena
Awesome tour. Massimo was a great tour guide. Even with the new COVID 19 restrictions, Massimo got us to the ground floor part of the tour on time. The ground floor portion is a can’t miss part of the tour.

Skip-the-Lines Colosseum and Roman Forum Tour for Kids and Families
We spent our afternoon with Alessandra! She was amazing and really good with our 8 and 5 year old. She brought activity sheets and colored pencils to keep the kids engaged. She was also very knowledgeable on the topics my kids discussed and the questions they asked. We ended up being the only family she had that day which made it feel like our own private tour. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this event to those that want to visit the monuments with young kids.

I planned this tour for a birthday surprise for my Girlfriend, thankfully the weather was amazing sunny and we managed to enjoy it in full. What really made the difference has been our Tour Guide Lorenzo, he was entertaining, well prepared, active and very positive. He made the tour even more special and amazing .

Marco was a great tour guide with a lot of knowledge on his city! Definitely recommend. Also it was really great enjoying everything without the crazy crowds that are usually there this time of year. But with covid, everything was a lot emptier

When to Get There

As the Roman Forum shares an admission ticket with the Colosseum, it stays consistently busy throughout the day and often has long lines. Choose a walking tour with priority access to jump the queue and maximize your time.

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.
