The Roman Forum (Foro Romano)

The Roman Forum (Foro Romano) is near by the Colloseum. It was an important place during an imperial period and even now after many years and was damaged but it looked still amazing. We spent 3 hours and half to visit this amazing Roman Forum. It’s really big for me to walk 🙂 Just because I needed time for taking photos.
