This was the main street of ancient Rome and is still very well preserved. We had a glimpse of the past as we walked from the Colosseum towards Palatine Hill.

Via Sacra is the historical walkway leading from the Forum to the Colosseum. The pathway is of cobble-stones and well preserved. There are lots of historical ruins for photo-taking. Recommended.

The Via Sacra is the historic walkway from the Forum to the Colosseum. The ancient stones are the historic walkways of the ancient Romans. It is an amazing site to be walking here next to modern Rome.
