Leave the Colosseum and arrive at the arch of Constantine, the emperor that legalised Christianity. Then on to the Arch of Titus with its Menorah – then enter the Roman Forum, the downtown of the ancient city and walk along the streets of the triumphs, surrounded by the court, temples, banks and schools. See the city archives and where the slave market was, admire the imposing Senate House, the remains of the Temple of Julius Caesar and enjoy the colourful atmosphere of an ancient city.
