Next to Colosseum, perhaps the most iconic building from ancient Rome. This temple is much smaller than Colosseum (of course), but quite grand in its own right. The inscription claims the building was erected by Marcus Agrippa, friend of emperor Augustus and married to his daughter Julia (the Elder). The first Pantheon was - but that building burnt down already in antiquity and the current one was dedicated circa 126 A.D. by emperor Hadrian (though there is evidence that suggests that the the building itself was begun by his predecessor Trajan).

The ancient Roman temple still stands in such good shape as it does, not having been turned into ruins, much due to the fact that it was consecrated as a church in 609. Still the structured has been looted, with for example the removal of marble cladding which was repurposed in other buildings over the centuries. Some architectural elements can even be found in the British Museum today.

This building is the National Monument of Victor Emmanuel II. It is also known as Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) and Il Vittoriano. It was built to honour the first king of the unified Italy - but it is today mostly known from being cumbersome and big and ugly, and a lot of older buildings were destroyed to make room for this thing.

It was designed by Giuseppe Sacconi. The work was begun in 1885, inaugurated in 1911 and finished in 1935.

Rome is full of ancient ruins, remains that hint of the glory that once was - and though these ruins can go a long way to explain how things once looked, there is no getting around that what you can actually see are just bleak shadows of the past. But then again, these remains are 2 000 years old and that is, in itself, quite remarkable.

This is the right side of the Forum of Augustus, one of the Imperial Fora, close to Forum Romanum. It was inaugurated, but not finished, in 2 B.C. The columns to the left are remains of the Mars Ultor temple, a temple Augustus had vowed to build already in 42 B.C. The little arch you can see right next to the right of it, is the remains of the Arch of Germanicus, one of two triumphal arches built by the successor emperor Tiberius. The forum was used for not only war-god worship, but also legal proceedings and was full of statues - the whole right side of the area, the part we are looking at here, was full of portraits of the Julio-Claudian dynasty, of which Augustus himself was a part.

The walls themselves were made of local stone, but then clad and decorated with Carrara marbles and other more exotic stones (much of which have been removed later on, exposing the walls themselves in a way that a Roman never would have been able to see them). You can also see imprints of roofs in the walls, also long since gone.

Exterior shot from the Colosseum, perhaps the most iconic building in Rome. This amphitheatre (also known as Flavian Amphitheatre) was built 70-80 A.D. by emperor Vespasian and Titus (with additional work done under the following emperor, Domitian). The Colosseum is still an imposing building, although it has been robbed of quite a lot of its materials and has been damaged by earthquakes. It once could hold more than 50,000 spectators and is the largest amphitheatre in the world.
