Full description
Take a private guided tour of Trajan’s Market in Rome, one of Italy's most interesting archaeological sites. Excavated between 1924 and 1936, its restoration is one of the country's special achievements in historic preservation. Built by General Marcus Ulpius Traianus, they became the stone testament of the Roman ruler. 

Located along Via dei Fori Imperiali, the complex, made of red brick and concrete, had six levels with up to 150 different shops and apartments. Now, the Trajan's Market houses the Imperial Forum Museum. 

Walk along Via Biberatica, the main shopping street, through one of the complex's corridors and along rooms that once housed the tabernae shops. Take advantage of access to the high terraces of the complex and admire the underlying area of Imperial Fora, one of the most extraordinary views of the eternal city. Listen to your guide as they explain the whole fori area from this unique perspective.
