The Roman Forum is a must see. For one, you can buy tickets to the colosseum there and bypass the ridiculously long lines you would have had to stand in if you had bought tickets at the actual colosseum. Two, the roman forum is so awesome! Much more exciting than the colosseum in my opinion. At the Forum, you walk amongst ancient ruins. You can touch things and sit on ancient columns and explore and get lost. Don't get me wrong, the colosseum is still magnificent and another must see (obvi), but if you skip the Roman Forum you'll really be missing out.

Was once the centre of the world. You will see why immediately. Behold the grandeur that was Rome. And then have a coffee and people watch, which is what Romans do best.

The Foro di Roma is where all the ancient public buildings used to stand and it's a nice walk to see all the ruins and how large it was. Parts of it are more conserved than others and, for me, the gardens were the most beautiful part of it.

The Roman Forum is a fascinating trip through one sliver of the city's history, though I think it's in the middle of my list of favorite Roman monuments. While it is usually jam packed with tourists, it's great for people who like to let their imaginations take over and fill in the blanks (as the majority of the ruins are pretty much...well, ruined). For those who like taking a tour, I'd save the tour guide for the Colosseum and just rely on a book for the forum.

The Roman Forum are a series of ruins which used to be the government sector of ancient Rome. It's a nice walk and is worth going to observe the architecture of the former buildings, especially if you're a history buff.

Most interesting because of its juxtaposition against the back drop of other historical monuments. A nice place to wonder and think about the glory of Ancient Rome and the long history of this amazing city
The Roma Pass is highly recommended as a way to skip the long line.

For a place with such significance in Roman History, the Forum is actually a little depressing. This was once the largest open air market and meeting place in the ancient world and now most of the ruins are unrecognizable. There are some exceptions--some of the arches and the old curia among them--but the forum really gives more of a sense of just how far the Empire fell.
