Wandering Wednesday – I Swear One More From Rome [The Roman Forum]

Leave a comment

This last installment of my trip to Rome is about our visit to the Roman Forum!

What’s crazy about the Roman Forum is that it’s just in the center of a bustling city. Can you imagine the years going by as this place just fell to ruin? Including the Colosseum? So bizarre to think about it.

Okay, off we go to the pictures!

We didn’t go on a guided tour. We were only armed with our trusted audio guide! And we were pretty exhausted, so a lot of my memory of everything is fuzzy. I’ve done my best to connect the dots, though!

I didn’t realize that this altar existed until we came upon it. . .
