The Roman Forum was the heart of the city during the Republic (509 BC - 27 BC) and continued for hundreds of years. The wealthy and powerful Romans of the day resided above the Forum on Palatine Hill, where legend says that Romulus and Remus founded the city in 753 BC. This City Walk allows plenty of time to explore this incredible collection of ancient artifacts.
