We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

The forum:

The Roman forum was, like the Greek agora, the center of public life. Not just an open space between buildings, the forum was the locus of Senate and Imperial proclamations, the place where the augurs were read and the auspices pronounced, and a central area for ostentatious display of grief and gratitude. The forum was typical in its plan: at far end of a long open square was a temple set upon a high podium, the processional axis of which formed the formal axis and focal point of the forum.

Colonnades along the other three perimeters of the space established a visually unified setting and provided covered walkways between the buildings on both sides. Pompeii, one of the Roman companion towns that were buried by the Vesuvian eruption of 79 AD and brought back to life during the last two centuries, has provided fundamental knowledge of the domestic life of the ancients. It has become one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the world. Open daily: 9am till 2 hours before sunset.
