These two ancient ruins were really cool – because one , for centuries, was the centre of daily life in Rome, the other – the Arch of Septimius Severus – has such a cool name! Not sure if the actual emperor himself was cool – but his name sure was!!!
We walked from the Piazza del Campidoglio to discover the Roman Forum behind it! For centuries, this was the center of day-to-day life in Rome!
Walking to get a closer look at the Arch – the building across from it:
Arch of Septimius Severus! No relation to Severus Snape, I’m sure!!! 🙂

View of the Colosseum as we left the Roman Forum to walk to Vei dei Fori Imperiali road:
Wow, what a city ancient Rome must have been……
