Roman Forum

Rome, Italy

Leave current election-year campaigns behind to visit an ancient site where modern politics was born. Between eras of rule by kings and emperors, the Roman Forum was where the first senate and republican government held court. Today, it is an archeological site of ruins, temples and royal residences that stretch back to the 7th century B.C. Walk the same streets as Julius Caesar once did and imagine witnessing speeches, trials, even gladiator matches here.
