Roman Forum (古羅馬遺址), Arch of Constantine, Via dei fori imperiali, Rome Italy 2013 羅馬意大利自由行


We left the crowded place at Colosseum, continue our walk to Via dei fori imperiali ( a road that in the city center of Roma) , and passing by Roman Forum and heading to Piazza Vienna.

This is Arch of Constantine (Arco di Costantino) , just located beside Colosseum..

This is Arch of Titus (Arch de Tito ) it seem this is older than the Arc de Triomphe in Paris France, but the size is smaller than Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

We did not walk the whole place of Roman Forum (古羅馬遺址) (is a rectangular forum (plaza) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome) . This place is too huge, we just passing by and enter to road Via dei fori imperiali..

I understand buying ticket from this entrance is faster than buying at Colosseum. This ticket can be entered to both Colosseum and Roman Forum..

we walked along Via dei fori imperiali (Via means road), and it was closed for cars to enter on Sunday( but not sure it is every Sunday also closed) . We can walked freely along this road.
