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.
