The forum was the economic, political, and religious center of Pompeii.  At the north end, stand the ruins of the temple of Jupiter.  To the west of the temple of Jupiter is the Arch of Augustus.  To the east of the temple is the macellum or marketplace.  Mount Vesuvius can be seen to the north of the forum.
