Roman Holiday – Roman Forum

The Roman Forum was the center of public life in Rome. Processions, criminal trials, public speeches all took place in this central area which is located betweem Palatine and Capitoline hills.

This is my final post in this series. However, I have now added a page under “Travel”, which contains all images from my previous “Roman Holiday” posts. It also includes additional images not previously published. I hope you have enjoyed.

  1. Where were you standing to get such wonderful height, Jim? I’m trying to figure out how close we actually came to the Forum. I think it looks like we may have been fairly close-by, but had to leave due to the timing of an up-coming tour. We walked past the Colosseum, and thought we were headed to the Forum. I’m so disappointed we missed it…but it’s a good reason to go back!!! 😉

    • Hi Judy, I think this one was captured from the Victor Emmanuel monument at the first level, which is about 50 – 60ft up overlooking the Forum. The Forum runs all the way down from this monument to the Colosseum, just behind the main road. Definately worth another visit. Glad you enjoyed your visit to Italy.
