A trip to Rome is not complete without a visit to the Roman Forum. No other place in Europe is so steeped in history. Although the ruins that remain today do not adequately evoke the great splendour of the ancient world, the bowl between the Campidoglio, Palatino and Viminal, with its towering and overturned columns of the temples of the Curia, its decayed basilicas and triumphal arches, its forums and remains of walls, is nevertheless extremely impressive.
