The Senate / Curia

S.P.Q.R. is the most known abbreviation from Roman times. It means Senate and the Popular Assembly of Rome. The building currently still standing in the Roman Forum is the original Senate, or Curia, the original seat of the consuls and tribune. Here, as in any administrative centre, all the important decisions, regarding the government of the Empire and of the Republic, were taken.

House of the Vestals

The home of the Vestal Virgins, the chosen young girls, priestess, who took a vow of chastity and looked after the holy flame of the goddess Vesta. Today it is possible to enter the ruins of the house and gardens where the remains of some beautiful ancient statues are still standing.

Temple of Caesar

Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC. His body was cremated, and on that exact spot, an altar in his memory was erected. After his death and the construction of the temple a deification of the Emperor had taken place. The remains of the Temple are still visible inside the Roman Forum between Via Sacra and the Temple of Vesta.

Colosseum

One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Flavian Amphitheatre or Colosseum, is still standing in the heart of the Ancient Rome ruins, destination to millions of visitors every year. Its name, Colosseum, comes from a colossal statue that has been positioned on Piazza del Colosseo. The history of this magnificent building is full of spectacular gladiator games and animal hunts which were the main entertainment of the Romans in ancient times.

Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine:

The Basilica was built in 312 AD and it has been considered the largest building in Rome. The capacity of the building was significant and it was also used as a courthouse or meeting hall. Many other buildings have been inspired by this massive construction, including particularly the old Penn Station in New York City.
