Create an itinerary including Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum
Fronted by towering Corinthian columns, Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum showcases ancient classical architecture and houses a small interior church. Stop by the grand temple, wedged in between more modern Italian buildings, and marvel at its solid construction and pristine facade, preserved intact from its creation during the first century BCE. Make your way through the stately row of pillars to the church within and you'll be greeted by the ornate decorations, rich paintings, and shimmering gold accents that adorn the walls and ceiling. This inner section was refurbished and modified during the Baroque period in the 17th century. Plan your visit to Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Assisi trip planner.

  • Amazing Ran remnants. We we're able to touch the walls and tombstones that Romans built amd carved. Fabulous little museum, a complete gem. The museum even housed Etruscan Urns! A time machine type of museum. Only 5 euros
  • Great and quick museum for only 4 euro. You really can't appreciate Minerva's temple/church or the center of town without understanding what's underneath. It is an walkway under the main square of the original square and the original wall in front of Minerva's temple.
