The Forum stood in the city of Pompeii as a religious and cultural center. Various buildings lined the main area, including the Temple of Apollo and the Macellum. Before the destruction of Pompeii, the area was a perfect example of Ancient Roman architecture. People flocked to the area and engaged in daily life there.
Nowadays, mostly ruins dot the area in and around Pompeii's Forum. It's easy to figure out which buildings stood where, though. Visitors can get a sense of how the area was laid out and what certain buildings were used for.
Without a doubt, Pompeii's Forum remains a wonderment to behold and visit.Places nearby:
