Trajan's Markets

The Markets of Trajan give a tantalizing glimpse of what Rome was really like at the absolute height of its power, under the Emperor Trajan.

This ancient landmark was a high-end shopping mall complex, designed by one of the greatest architects of ancient Roman times. It now houses a museum dedicated to the various extensions to the Roman Forum that were built from Julius Caesar’s time onwards.

The site is fully wheelchair accessible and open seven days a week.

Trajan's Markets and Imperial Forum Museum
Very interesting. The variety of vases from different parts of the empire is interesting to a point, to me. I enjoyed the sculptures of human busts, specially after having visited the Vatican museums. I was fascinated most by having learned about Emperor Trajan. He and Marcus Aurelius are the ones I'm most interested in, now. Before it was just M.A., but now Trajan. The market is impressive for what it used to be. I can imagine what it used to be...people going in and out of storefronts, the way it flows and it must have allowed for crowds to flow in and out of it.Impressive. Specially, what it must have looked like when the Imperial Forum was next to it. If you like history you'd be impressed by the sights. The video at the start of the museum is very good, i thought. It is a very good set-up for the visit. I wish it contained a few more impressive sculptures, and so on, but I take those are in other museums, or maybe remain on site.

Trajan's Markets and Imperial Forum Museum
Emozionante e non affollato...solamente nell'ultima parte mi sono un po' persa...non è sempre evidente il percorso.
