New old stuff

By mistere
A couple of images from the ever expanding Forum complex in Rome. Taken from a previously inaccessible
area that has recently been opened and provides new access to the area around Trajens market and a new
entrance into the main forum area.
The first is an image of Trajens column (center) and a number of columns that were laying in pieces on the ground but have been re-erected.
The re- erected columns formed part of the Basilica Ulpia. An ancient Roman civic building located in the Forum of Trajan, named after Roman emperor Trajan whose full name was Marcus Ulpius Traianus.
The version is a view across part of the Foro Romano to the Palatine Hill, taken from another previously inaccessible
area. The people in front of the wall are entering the Forum from the main entrance on Via dei Fori Imperiali.
Shame really, they've missed out on a huge newly opened area and it only cost a couple of euro's extra to use the new entrance.

How good to know that the authorities are using time and money to not only maintain the current state of the place, but to improve and expand it while making it more interesting to visitors by restoring what they can.

Great to see these wonderful old ruins being preserved, Dave, hope someone does the same for me...Wink

And well done for preserving them in pictures for all to see.

I have to agree with all the above historical buildings once lost are irreplaceable Rome is such a City thousands of years of humanity living their lives and poor and opulent conditions add to lifeís rich tapestry.

Fab image as well
