Continuing inside the archaeological area, climb up to the hill of Palatin, where you will find the remains of the imperial residence, which overlook imposing Circus Maximus and across the valley of the Forums.

History tells that in the Republican period, when Rome became the capital of a huge empire, the ancient Roman Forum became insufficient for all its administrative functions, for this reason in 54 BC. Giulio Cesere had a new square built, the Forum of Caesar. Following was built the Forum of Augustus, the Forum of Nerva and finally the Forum of Trajan, the most majestic of the city.

The imperial forums can be visited with a guide upon reservation, the entire area is always visible Imperial Forums street.
