A Tour of Ancient Rome

This site is very cool. Take a tour of the most important landmarks of the Roman Forum and read an anecdote or two about a specific landmark. There is also a map at the bottom of the page that will show you where in the Forum the landmark you are looking at is located.

See the:
Via Sacra, Lapis Niger, Curia (Senate House), Basilica Aemilia, Templum Antonini et Faustinae, Basilica Constantini, Templum Veneris et Romae, Arcus Titi, Regia, Atrium Vestae, Templum Vestae, Templum Juli, Templum Castoris, Basilica Julia, Templum Saturni, Tabularium, Templum Divi Vespasiani, Templum Concordiae, Lacus Curtius, Rostra, Miliarium Aureum, Arcus Septimii Serveri and the Carcer (Prison).

Also be sure to check out the extra images here. Unfortunately some of these links are broken.

This site is a good beginning reference point for someone planning to visit Rome in the future. Start the tour here.
