This is right across the street from the Roman forum and Victor Emanuelle monument. You can't walk through it, but view it from the sidewalk. Unlike the Forum, there are very good signs with history (Italian and English), architectural drawings, and pictures showing what it was believed to actually look like with everything marbled and stuccoed. There are even fairly large areas with what look like original marble flooring. This should be on everyone's list but I bet many tourists miss this wonderful bit of history.
There are NO crowds and it is easily accessible. Figure 30 minutes to view this and the Trajan forum next door.

We were taken to see the Forum up the Palatine hill with our guide Elena Siamese from 'Eyes of Rome',with the same direct access ticket we had for the Coliseum. We would have missed so much had we not had Elena with us, she had various books with now and then overlays that showed how marvellous is was in the day. To see the still paved road into Rome passing under decorated triumphant arches to various battles. The temple of Vesta where the vestal virgins lived their lives in a grand villa etc. etc. Whether you are interested in history or not you cannot be dissapointed . Want to go back to Rome to see it all over again.

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.

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.

I suggest to all tourists to see the evening show (9, 10,11 p.m.) that describes the life of Romans inside Foro di Augusto through light games and special sounds (15€)
