With this private tour, we’ll tell you about the birth, growth, and the peak of the Roman Empire visiting the remains of the Forums built-in ever lasting memory of the deeds of the Emperors who spread the domain of the Romans on most of the known world.
We’ll start with a visit to the Museum of the Imperial Forums, set in the ancient building of the Market of Trajan: one of the most interesting samples of civil architecture left in Ancient Rome.
We’ll then walk by the Forum of Cesar, the first of the so-called Imperial Forums built by Julius Caesar near the Forum Romanum in 46 BC. The next stop will be by the Forum of Augustus, built to house a temple honoring Mars it was inaugurated in 2 BC. We’ll then continue our walk to see the remains of the Temple of the Peace, built-in 71 AD under Emperor Vespasian to commemorate his military victory over the Jewish People. Then we’ll talk about the Forum of Nerva built in 97 AD, and our last stop will be in the Forum of Trajan raised in 113 AD to commemorate the conquest of the Dacia Region, with its great Column: one of the masterpieces of Ancient Roman art.
