Contiki Tours visiting the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome allow a lot of free time to explore the heart of what was one of the great and most advanced civilizations ever to exist on the face of the earth.
The Ancient Roman Forum, although now an archaeological site and ruin, still contains the remnants of the temples, palaces and meeting places that were once the beating heart of the Empire.
The Forum is still being excavated today, but it is possible to walk amongst the ruins and see where Julius Caesar was cremated as well as triumphal arches, columns the many other significant sites.
