Luckily the Palatine Hill is part of a combination ticket or I probably would have skipped it in favor of the two more popular members of the trio, the Colosseum and the Forum. The ruins here are just as interesting and because they are a...More

In the Coloseum - Palatin Hill and Roman Forum, it's definitely the best place for me . Besides Palatin Hill it's a must do. Take a good pare of shoes because there will be walking

The Palantine hill is quite a large area and there's a lot to see so take your time. The free map from the Colosseum ticket office comes in quite handy to keep track where you are and what all the objects / buildings are.

This landmark is incredible, but would not recommend for those with mobility issues. There are many stairs and steep inclines and declines on cobblestone paths due to the original design of the site. This is to maintain the original look and feel of the site...More

The view is magnificemt and as you look down onto the forum, you can see things you wouldn't be able to, from ground level.

This is an area that does not draw as huge of crowds. We recommend you download Rick Steves Audio Europe free audio tour. We were unable to download ours due to poor reception. We regretted not understanding a lot of what we were seeing.

Wear walking shoes! This site is essentially attached to the Forum so you will be covering a lot of ground!

This was a fantastic little addition to the ticket brought for the Colosseum. Palatine hill has lots of walking to do but you get to visit the entire Roman quarter where there is lots to see. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

Take time to walk the grounds and imagine yourself back during the Roman empire (preferably as a noble). There is so much history here and changes,additions over the years and how the space was used,

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
