“Forum of Augustus”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

The entire Forum and Palatine Hill historical area is so big and worth going seeing. I went to see it after visiting the Colosseum because of the close proximity of each other. There are several different forums near each other, so be sure to read the signs and take pictures of each sign, before taking your pictures, this keeps everthing in order. It will take awhile to take in everything, but it's worth the amount of time you will spend here. I'm so happy I got a chance to see history and you will too.

“Don't miss the Forum of Augustus evening light show”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This was one of our high points of Rome - multimedia projection on the ruins telling the entire history of Rome. English and other narration. About 45 minutes. Well worth the cost. I believe it will be there until October.

“Augustus Caesar 1st Emperor of the Republic”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

This place is a must for fans of ancient Rome. And to see the forum of the first emperor of Rome is amazing. This is located outside the Roman Forum and Julius Caesar forum.

“A nice walk in the past.”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

This place is heaven for fans of ancient Rome.
For the rest of us, it is a very nice one hour walk (and photo-op) through the ancient relics, that survived the eons.
Don't visit on a rainy day, though.
