The Roman Forum is a rectangular forum (plaza) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings located between the Palatine and Capitoline Hills at the center of the city of Rome. It was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the site of triumphal processions and elections; the venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches; and the nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city’s great men. It has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history. Today it attracts 4.5 million sightseers yearly.
and finally With our "Colosseum Tour" you will also see the:
The Palatine Hill is the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands above the Roman Forum on one side and upon the Circus Maximus on the other. Probably, according to Roman mythology, the Palatine Hill was the location where the she-wolf Lupa found Romulus and Remus. Therefore Rome has its origins on the Palatine. Several emperors resided there, so you can still see the ruins of the palaces of Augustus, Tiberius and Domitian. Augustus also built a temple to Apollo here.
