If you love Roman history this place is for you. Give yourselves plenty of time theres a lot to see. Only tip is wear sturdy shoes some of the walking surfaces are very uneven, But they are 2000 years old :)

Beautiful site filled with loads of history. We went as part of a tour, spent about 1 hour there and didn't even scratch the surface. It's a must see and you could spend days there and not see it all!

A walk up the hill was part of our skip the line tour, great history and lovely views across The Forum and the city, nice gardens bit of a walk but worth the views.

We loved trekking through the ruins of Palatine hill imagining what it was like back in the day. The cost of admission is nothing compared to what you get out of this tour!

By me the nicest place. Parks, buildings wall film. You have everything and you need at least 2:30 minutes to go. The colloseum photo we made the best from that side. Definitely the most interesting. You really have something for everyone to see.

We visited the hill as part of a guided tour and I am so glad we went. The simple fact of how outrageous the place was when it was built and the sheer size of it. It was wonderful to walk around and use your...More

You get free admission to the Palatine Hill and Forum areas with your ticket to the Coliseum. It's truly amazing to see all three areas. You have to see it to appreciate it. In fact, all three are that way.

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this

I know that you can buy it there. Outside the colosseum near the entrance to the palatine hill the line is relatively short. At least when I visited. The ticket is for 2 days so you can see both places if you did not have... More
