We enjoyed waking past this foro both during the day and at night. It was very well lit at night to show off the excellent structure that remains today. It could only have been exceptional at it's hieght

The Forum of Augustus is impressive to see, especially at night with all the lights, it creates an amazing atmosphere. The only thing that bothered me was that there was a special effects show running for 3x every night and to sit down to have...More

The Forum is another Roman treasure. You can walk the ancient ruins and feel the history around you or just view from a distance.

All of the Forums kind of blur together but it is lovely to walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali at twilight and take it all in with perhaps a street musician playing some acoustic guitar. It's less about what building is which and what used...More

This was fantastic! Much more than a light show! Along with an informative audio, the ruins of the Forum of Augustus were brought back to life for 50mins. You could imagine the grandeur and opulence as you were taken back in time by the audio,...More

Immerse yourself into the show, don't look for the so called out of date effects, the content is great right on topic and very informative. I found it very moving to have one period of Rome's history bought to life in a clear commentary. Bought...More

Was unsure as to what it was exactly, but was amazed at the whole production. Would do it again when I return to Rome

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
