The Roman Forum, or what they call it in Latin Forum Romanum, is an area of ruins that once used to be a shopping plaza with several important government buildings, surrounding it. This was the place where all forms of public meetings, concerts, performances, law courts and public trials in the city of Rome were held. Elections, rallies, matches and other public events made this forum to be known as the most celebrated place in all of history. The offices that surrounded the forum gave it a touch of eliteness, at the same time a bustling place for recreation of all types. Hence it served as a major social, political and religious centre in the Roman empire.
Roman Forum is the site of Cloaca Maxima, one of the world’s first sewage systems that had let out the foul smell and made way for settlements. The Roman Forum extends from northwest to southwest from the base of the Capitoline Hill to the Velian Hill. The basilicas have been placed at various points - Basilica Aemilia in the north to the Basilica Julia in the south. Here are some great points to pay a visit to in the Roman Forum :
