Impressive to see such old ruins... that have been kept around to show the history of an ancient time that shaped the city.

Ancient ruins...

Rated:

Was good to see the remains of what stood thousands of years ago but one visit would be enough for most. Good that the Forum and Colosseum are included in the same ticket though.

Albeit now just ruins, you can still get a feel of just how grand the buildings formerly were and it is quite easy to get a sense of how things were back then. It is best to do both the colosseum and the ruins together when visiting as they are situated next to each other.

A great experience visiting the forum, alot of people just walk through after visiting the colusseum but if suggest you also walk along the main road that leads up to the colusseum as this give an elevated views over the forum where you can get A better grasp on ruins.
