The Forum of Pompeii is practically the place that gives the most incredible visual impact on the ancient city of Pompeii. In fact, here one can admire the large square with the honorary arches, the buildings of public administration, the basilica, the macellum, the Mensa Ponderaria, the temples of Apollo and Jupiter, and much more. The main civil, religious, and commercial functions were held in the Forum, and as in other cities of the Roman Empire, access was reserved only for pedestrians, and therefore access to carts was prohibited. It was a pedestrian zone before its time. In fact, there were many religious, political, and economic buildings around it that were heavily frequented, and it would have been dangerous to let carts pass. In the center of the west side, there is a tribune for orators used for public speeches.
