Named for the founder of the Roman Empire and its first emperor, Forum of Augustus stands as an example of imperial forum architecture in the heart of the former empire. Construction of the forum, built to honor Mars and to carry out legal proceedings, began around 20 BCE. The millennia-old building remains today as ruins, including several well-preserved columns. With little information posted to explain the significance of the building, make sure to do your research or hire a tour guide to gain the full sightseeing experience. You can plan Rome trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
