Dig into the ruins and we find a lot going on. The main street, Via Sacra runs through the centre of the Forum from Capitoline Hill in the west to the Arch of Titus. Victorious generals and emperors would parade along here, finishing at the Temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline Hill. The steps that run alongside the road at the main entrance to the Forum are a section of the Regia, the foundations of the house of the old Kings of Rome. This probably dates to Numa, the second king, who ruled from 715BC to 673BC. Opposite, the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina is still relatively well preserved, due to its conversion in the seventh century to the Christian church of San Lorenzo in Miranda.
