Done this as part of a tour of the colosseum and Roman Forum and once the collosseum was done the forum and palatine hill was well boring sadly. If you are looking to cram loads in then don't bother with this to be fair.

Neat place...a journey through history. Take your time and enjoy the view since you are right next to the coliseum.

The ruins up here are truly ruins, hard to tell what was there before since most of it has been 'stolen' for other structures since the fall of Rome. Better to spend your time in the Forum, Colosseum, or other ruins around the city.

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

Of what i remember there were guided tours by a person etc. but i do not know the cost. You would have to rely on just seeing upon arrival. Luckily i had a book on pretty much everything there was to know about Rome.
