|Scene from Roman Forum (Foro Romano)|
Roman Forum, a complex of columns standing among ruined walls and
crumbling foundations, bears traces of the 12 centuries of history which forged
the Roman civilization; as such it is one of the most popular sights in Rome.
Once the political and civil heart of the powerful Roman Empire,
the forum is the obvious starting point for a visit to Italy's capital city.
