Explore the Roman Forum at your own pace with this highly acclaimed self-guided GPS audio tour. Beginning from the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina, you'll work your way through the timeless streets of ancient Rome while discovering the stories that document the rise and fall of the Empire. The tour is ready whenever you feel like taking a stroll. It plays audio automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smart phone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline. If you've got an hour and want to see all the major historical and cultural themes that the Forum has to offer – this is the tour for you!

Join writer and historian Michael Anderson in imagining the passage of time at the Roman Forum, where Caesar was assassinated and Cicero made speeches that echo through to the present. He'll connect you to the successes and failures of Rome, which is also a way of connecting with the civilizations that have inherited its culture.
