In late October 2013, we were lucky enough to see the Roman Forum at night. One of the stops was inside the Curia, the Senate House of the ancient Romans. The building was amazingly silent and contemplative. You could really appreciate the sheer size of it, as well as the beautiful marble floors. Inside are also a red porphyry statue found near the Curia and several beautiful carved panels (the Plutei of Trajan) of ceremonial animals being led to sacrifice (make sure to see the backs as well).
