Interesting

This is an open area and you can look into is free of charge from a viewing platford at one end or through the chain link fence. Unfortunately the main road was built over the middle of it so part of the site is undiscovered. Some of the columns have been re-built to show the impressively large size it was originally.
A beautiful spot.

Most people have never even heard of Aquileia ... to have the opportunity to stroll through the ruins is priceless!

A glimpse of Ancient Rome which few know about
Sep 2019
Aquileia was an important town in Ancient Rome, especially during the later Republican time and early to mid Empire. It was a very important port city and that supported manufacturing as well as a thriving community. Now we have the ruins and museums to tell the story. While much is still to be uncovered, you are free to walk as you wish to various sites and, with the aid of wonderful guide signs along the way you can pick together the mosaic that was ancient Aquileia.

Good start for the guided tour
Jul 2019
We came here as first step of a guided tour (info on different tours can be found at the Aquileia info point. A place definitely worth a stop if you want to make the most out of your visit here).

The site itself is a perfect example of the Roman Empire's everyday life and how the fori were for the Romans a pillar of their culture, a place where to gather and discuss about business and more.

If you go with the guide you will get a glimpse not just on the ruins but also on how cities were built and in particular why this town was located here and the reason of its name.

Definitely worth visiting.

Impressive scale

Not as in your face as some of what's in Aquileia, and the best sculpture is all in the museum, but gives you a great impression of just how important this place was 2000 years ago.

Nice archaeological site and roman remains
Feb 2018 • Friends
We walked along the old roman road that passed through the old roman river port sided by beautiful trees and countryside. We then turned around and passed through the roman forum with some columns still standing. Further on another open air archaeological area with roman houses and oratories which were used as private altars of the local families.

Amazing Walking Trough a Roman City
Oct 2017 • Friends
Walking through a major Roman city gave us an insight into the building ability of the Romans. Columns, layout of streets and homes showed the roman genius. A must see, because Venetians came from Aquileia. Great city of the Roman world.

More Accessible And Interesting Than Many Ruins In Rome
Aug 2017 • Couples
Beats ruins in Rome on three basic scores – very accessible, free, and no crowds. It really is quite a sensation to view these ruins at sunset with no one else around, and imagining what a busy and hectic place it must have been at one time. This particular part of Aqcuileia has little signage or interpretive information, but the ruins are fairly extensive and well preserved. You’ll want to stop as soon as you see it on your way in to town. But drive to the tourist booth a few metres further south for parking, toilets, and orientation information. It is a short, easy walk to this site. Makes you wonder what else is under the current highway – wouldn’t be surprised to see a town bypass in a few years so they can complete the excavations.

Wonderful space but access poor
Jul 2017 • Couples
A wonderful evocative space but with heavy reconstruction, but clear where that is. Info boards seemed minimal so bring a guide book.

Be sure to read about it beforehand.

We always try to read up on the places we visit which was fortunate for us since the signage was limited and all in Italian.
