Expert review of Roman Forum and Palatine
The political, administrative and social heart of Ancient Rome, the Forum was where the empire’s temples, law courts, senate houses and open-air meeting places were concentrated. On the Palatine Hill above, the regime’s power-brokers and VIPs built themselves villas and palaces (including the surprisingly modest House of Augustus, recently restored and opened to the public). Today this is an area of evocative ruins where cats roam among broken columns and fallen pediments.
