Dedicated in 498 BC, the Temple of Saturn was one of the earliest temples in Rome. Rebuilt in 42 BC and the 4th century, the current remains date from this later rebuild. As well as serving as the temple, this building also housed the aerarium, or state treasury, and the law-codes on bronze tablets. One of the better surviving temples at the west end of the forum, the Temple of Saturn stands with its facade of columns and pediment intact.

Some times you can't tell if it is Roman or Greek. Most of Roman heritage is heavily influenced by Greek art, anyway...

Named after Julius Caesar, who dedicated it in 46 BC from the spoils of the Gallic War, the Basilica Julia was completed by Augustus but burned shortly afterward and was not rededicated for another twenty years, in AD 12. It again was rebuilt by Diocletian after the fire of AD 283 and later restored by Gabinus Vettius Probianus, urban prefect in AD 416, who embellished the interior with statues by Polyclitus, Praxiteles, and Timarchus (his son).

The Basilica housed the civil law courts and tabernae provided space for government offices and banking. In the first century AD, it also was used for sessions of the Centumviri (Court of the Hundred), who presided over matters of inheritance.

Verona is the second roman city in Italy in terms of roman heritage, after Rome (i'm not talking about "dead" sites like Pompei or Capua)

Verona, Italy urban "chessboard" of Roman heritage

Augustodunum (Autun in Burgundy in eastern France) :

The city was founded during the reign of Augustus.
It was the civitas capital of the Celtic Aedui, who had been allies and fratres of Rome since before Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul.
Augustodunum was a planned foundation replacing the original oppidum Bibracte who was the old capital of the Aedui, located some 15 miles away.




The gate St André :

149 meters in diameter, it was the biggest in capacity of the western part of Roman Empire.






There was also the second theater outside of the wall (discovered in 1976 by aerial photo) :

El Djem, Tunesia, the largest amphitheatre outside Italy:



The Great Mosque of Kaioruan, Tunesia, it's said that the Mosque, one of the oldest in Africa, is the largest museum for Roman column.




And not to mention Karthago as well. The bath house with impressive basement


Tunesia has a lot of Roman city-ruins, such as Dougga and Sbeitla, which I'm unfortunate to not have time enough to visit.
