Create an itinerary including Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum
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. Plan your visit to Roman Forum and Archaeological Museum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Assisi trip planner.

  • be very attentive visiting this museum, as with all museums in italy right now, the number to call for information is not the museum but the tourist information center. you might think the museum is open but it is not actually.
  • 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
