Rome was famous for many things. The spread of Christianity, development of aqueducts, development of the dome and roads, and freedom for women are just a few.

They built roads and buildings.

The above answer to what were the significant achievements of the Roman Empire covers many but not all of Rome's accomplishments; it leaves off the most important one, written laws. The reader must remember that any list of Rome's accomplishments must be seen in the context of the ancient world. Here is a summation of Rome's legacy:

Roman Law: The legal system of Rome surpassed any civilization's legal systems that came before Rome. Roman legal principles have been the foundation of many legal codes throughout the world, especially in Western Europe. Roman law took hundreds of years to develop; the 12 Tables of the 5th century BC was its first codification. As time passed and the small city state of Rome took on the cloth of empire, 3 legal systems developed. They included A. Civil Law which covered all Roman citizens. This of course included all conquered peoples who were granted Roman citizenship. The latter was historically a new idea. Of all the civilizations that preceded Rome, non ever allowed people from conquered nations to attain the same civil rights as a person in Rome had. As an example, it is said that the Apostle Paul, being a citizen of Rome, escaped many attempts on his life because no trial could convict him until the last one which found him executed by Roman law. This legal principle was called the Law of Peoples.

B. Natural Law. This included all the abstract laws that were repeatedly codified. Romans had all the laws it practiced codified ( written )

After the fall of the old Roman Empire, the emperor of the eastern half, Justinian, compiled all the laws of Roma into what is called the Justinian Code. .......

Rome also contributed to the advanced military system based on the Roman legion. The military had a formal and battle tested method to expand & control the nations that it conquered.

Rome established safe and secure trading routes between the western and eastern parts of the empire. This allowed trade to flourish.

Rome created small scale manufacturing which became the basis of a strong economy.

Rome improved its agricultural economy by developing what we now practice and call crop rotation.

It's incredible architectural feats are mentioned by the first writer above, and some of Rome's ancient aqueducts were still functional into the 20th century.

With the exception of the early Christians, Rome had tolerance for all religions, including Judaism.

What were the most significant achievements of the Roman Empire?

Romans had many achievements in many different aspects. Their most important ones were probably their political powers in the ancient times. For a good amount of time they controlled all the land around the Mediterranean sea under the rule of military leaders that took office and pretty much became dictators. (Julius Caesar, Augustus). At the time these achievements were the most important especially to the Roman citizens themselves. Today, some historians argue that their technological advances were the Romans most significant achievements. Some of these include, but are not limited to, aqueducts, baths, arches, stadiums and other architecture, and their road systems.
