Piazza del Foro

Piazza del Foro
Brescia, 25121
This enchanting square was once the civil and religious center of Roman 'Brixia' and it still has the stratification of its ancient history. This is undoubtedly the most important existing Roman archaeological complex in Lombardy. Originally the forum, it used to reach the current Via Cattaneo, forming a large, sloping rectangle that was probably overlooked by floors linked by stairs. Excavations in 1823 and successive studies have only discovered a part, which consists of the Capitolino Temple and the theater to the north, some elements of the portico and the Basilica in the south. Walking from the museums toward the Capitolino Temple, it is possible to see part of the paving and the limits of the sacred area of the temple, shown by a wall from the Flavian era, behind which are structures from the republican era. The current cement staircase is a substitute for the large staircase that used to link the forum to the Capitolino area.
