The Roman Forum, along the Via Sacra, the oldest street in Rome, includes remnants of ancient buildings and arches such as the Senate House, the Basilica, and the Arch of Septimus Severus.

Also still standing are the assembly place and Caesar's platform, where senators and commoners could publicly voice their opinions. It is also said that Romulus, one of the founders of Rome, is buried beneath the Black Stone (Lapis Niger).
