Forum of Augustus, Rome

4.7
#29 of 528 in Historic Sites in Rome
Named for the founder of the Roman Empire and its first emperor, Forum of Augustus stands as an example of imperial forum architecture in the heart of the former empire. Construction of the forum, built to honor Mars and to carry out legal proceedings, began around 20 BCE. The millennia-old building remains today as ruins, including several well-preserved columns. With little information posted to explain the significance of the building, make sure to do your research or hire a tour guide to gain the full sightseeing experience. You can plan Rome trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • The Roman Empire, the first emperor of Rome (public Square), is located in the north side of the Folin Peliali Street. It seems that the temple of Mars was placed in the back in the square which was completed in 2 BC. The surrounding area is lined with many emperors.

  • One of the places that the visitor must have to visit, at this location and throughout this area, breathes the ancient Rome. Unmissable.

  • Absolutely amazing! The ruins are not in a perfect shape but they are still impressive and spread the feeling of Rome. The show that is here in the evening is also amazing cause it shows you and explains you how it looked in its glorious times and learns you something about Roman Empire
  • What a historic place! Must visit. There are benches so you can sit, rest and enjoy the view.
