I have been to the Ronan forum and I liked this better. It was well signposted in english. They have a glass floor allowing you to see the roman street without damaging it. Very well done.

This is an intact Roman temple which is at street level today because it was originally built up higher than the public piazza where it was located. In fact, the Roman piazza is below the current one, so you have to descend below street level...More

This museum underground holds the Roman artifacts that have been preserved in Assisi. The history of this town is incredible. As you walk the streets you can just try to imagine what was here and who walked these streets thousands of years ago.

A preserved street and many local funerary stones, under the main square in Assisi. Many fascinating relics, including the gravestones of slaves, freed slaves (including several women) and a praetorian guard. All this and dog-friendly too!
