The Roman Forum (Palatine Hill), a wonderment in an outdoor museum.

The Roman Forum is situated in the area between Piazza Venezia and the Colosseum is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Three thousand years ago, the Roman Forum is a rectangular forum surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome, which was to become the future social and political center of one of the greatest empires of ancient times, was submerged in marshland. By an incredible invention of engineering, which was commissioned by the last two Etruscan kings, the Cloaca Maxima drainage system, a canal that is still in function to this very day, allowed for the drainage of the land. 

Foro was the name that the Romans gave to the central square of the urban settlement and we must try to imagine this busy, crowded place as the pulsing center of a modern city. Here the masses would gather or hang out just like modern day at a shopping mall.
In short, the Forum was the heart and soul of city life. It was in Caesar's time, when Rome has become the capital of a vast empire, that the Forum became a place for celebrations and in the Imperial era it was the symbol of the Empire.
The most incredible panoramic view of the entire Forum complex can be seen from the magnificent terraces of Campidoglio. Here you can observe the ruins of Basilica Emilia, the only remaining Republican basilica, or the Curia, which was once the seat of the Senate.
Starting from the Arch of Septimius Severus, the pathway winds through the most unique place in the world and passes beside the imposing Basilica di Massenzio, one of the most magnificent buildings of Imperial Rome, and ends near the Arch of Titus. During the medieval time, the Forum fell into a state of ruin and was abandoned. Its monuments were often used to build medieval fortifications and at times were even completely dismantled and their materials used elsewhere.
