Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum, Assisi

4.4
#2 of 13 in Museums in Assisi
Fronted by towering Corinthian columns, Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum showcases ancient classical architecture and houses a small interior church. Stop by the grand temple, wedged in between more modern Italian buildings, and marvel at its solid construction and pristine facade, preserved intact from its creation during the first century BCE. Make your way through the stately row of pillars to the church within and you'll be greeted by the ornate decorations, rich paintings, and shimmering gold accents that adorn the walls and ceiling. This inner section was refurbished and modified during the Baroque period in the 17th century.

  • The Roman Forum is an excavation site under Piazza del Commune, which presents the finds there very nicely.

  • The monument "Destoa" of the city so simple and quiet. It's worth a few minutes to stop and admire this truly open-air artwork. I chose to explore the city instead of entering because we were in the city making beats and returns from Rome. But from the outside it's pretty impactful!

  • Amazing Ran remnants. We we're able to touch the walls and tombstones that Romans built amd carved. Fabulous little museum, a complete gem. The museum even housed Etruscan Urns! A time machine type of museum. Only 5 euros
  • This was an unexpected gem of a museum for the price. Provides clear view of the roman era of this city and the difficulty of excavating this history without damaging the medieval city.
