When in Rome... make some aptly-themed evening plans! The Forum of Augustus Evening Show is an amazing, interactive experience that catapults you back to Ancient Rome. Combining lights, projections, music, effects, and history. We came, we saw, we were entertained!

Stand on a Roman staircase surrounded by ruins, and let the multimedia spectacular transport you through the history of Rome. Watch the projections on the ruins and imagine what it must have been like before it was... well, ruined.

The commentary has been written and arranged by Piero Angela, one of the most important science journalists and writers on the planet. Learn the story of Augustus' reign in the time of Rome's imperial growth, right where it happened!

This incredible, interactive show will be a highlight of your trip to Rome. Stand by the remains of a temple that once stood nine floors high and towered like a giant over the Forum, and absorb the history of the Roman Empire.

The booking process itself went smoothly. You only need to show your electronic ticket at the entrance. As for the show I liked it a lot. I even dragged my husband who is not interested in history and he liked this show as well ( he is usually bored in the museums).
This show helps you imagine how the Forum looked in the past ( It looked magnificent). Too bad so little is left of it now.

Very informative but simple to understand. We have children aged 12 and they enjoyed it and provided a good background and perspective to our Rome trip.

Our party of six totally enjoyed the Forum f Augustus evening show. We also saw the Caesar Evening Show. The music was beautiful & the computer imaging let you see the forum as it looked back in the day. Note of advise, give yourself time to see both, they are not together, you will have to walk a while to see the Caesar evening show. It was so beautiful!
