The Roman Forum is located between the Palatine hill and the Capitoline hill and was a central area in which Roman civilization developed.


The Eternal City

Rome, Italy


The Romans drained what was a wetland in the Seventh Century B.C.E. by a large sewer system that drained into the Tiber River and the Forum served as a central hub where citizens could gather for justice and faith and it also served as the economic hub of the city.

The white marble arch of Septimius Severus is located at the Northeast end of the Forum and is a triumphal arch to commemorate the Parthian victories (campaigns in Persia from 194/195 and 197-199 A.D.).


This is the remains of the Temple of Castor (the son of Zeus and a mortal woman named Leda) and Pollux (his twin brother and the son of a mortal man and Leda).
