Who ever thought that more than five million people would flock every year to a swamp in the middle of Italy? Indeed, the area that now comprises the Roman Forum was once a swamp. It is now the world’s most important archeological site, the heart of the most advanced civilization of the ancient world – Rome.
This audio tour tells the story of Rome, from its founding on the Palatine Hill in the 8th century BC up until its fall in the 5th century. We will then walk you through the Roman Forum, highlighting the most important buildings and events that took place throughout its twelve-hundred year history.
