Barbara De Rosa from Eyes of Rome is truly worth booking for this tour. She is a wonderfully charm lady who enjoys relaying the most information about this site as possible. She paints such a vivid picture of what these ruins once looked like that...More

There are so many paths up here we could have spend days wandering around. The views were incredible and there were so many vantage points to get great shots of the sky line from all angles. Be sure to take a bathroom break before you...More

The Palatine hill is where the senators and rich people of Rome lived. The ruins are in better condition than the Forum, but there are also less ruins. Be prepared for a lot of walking and climbing. While the Forum is mostly flat ground, the...More

This is included as a combo ticket with the colosseum and forum. It is included in the roma pass as such. With the roma pass you also get to skip the line. I should have done this altogether but broke it up, it lost something...More

The Palatine Hill was beautiful but the overall organization of this attraction is a 2/5: we sought a fountain more than one hour in the sun of 12-1pm and barely found one at the end of the hill; We also waited in line for the...More

This is another must do in Rome. The history of this area is amazing. We employed a guide through Tours by Locals and he was able to take us to the most important aspects of the Palatine Hill. An wonderful few hours.

We went to coliseum and had this as part of tour and must say it was very interesting and learned a lot,Chris the guide was great and gave a very formative guide to the palace which I had no idea about

This place is truly inspirational, due to the age of the ruins. You can walk on a road that Ceaser would have traversed, there is a 2000 year old bronze door that is still in place with working lock, amazing ruins and fantastic athmosphere. You...More

From the palatine hill and forum you can get a ticket which does those and the colosseum and if you're an EU citizen can get a ticket for €7.50 each but is a pretty amazing deal. We spend about 2/3 hours in here get good...More

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'd go for the audio tour of the Coliseum, bought online and look around the forum yourself, just buy tickets. You can always latch on to someone else's tour surreptitiously (yeah I'm a cheapskate!)

The tour I took was the Colliseum-Palatine Hill-Forum. There are lots of tour guides roaming around but I would guess they are not the best. I went with contexttravel which i found in a Rick Steves book. VERY good tour... More

No need to preorder tickets. Go to Palatine Hill which has shorter line up then Colosseum. Tickets are 12€ for both. Lines are shorter in the morning. We did a guided 5€ tour in the Colosseum but we didn't learn anything... More
