The walk through the shady area of the Palatine was most enjoyable. Buildings of ancient Rome were everywhere, all were labelled with a potted history and explanation. However, take a guide book as sometimes it is confusing as to what you are looking at. The...More

Located right next to the colosseum, why wouldn't you want to take this in as well. If you're in Rome to visit the sights, this a must do, some tours of the colosseum also include this

We didn't really know what to expect but we are so glad that we decided to visit the site. You literally see Rome from its foundation through to its rise as the most powerful nation on earth. Take plenty of water if it's hot, there...More

We took a long stroll around the Palatine Hill and totally loved it! lots of history, ancient city (more like ruins, but i like to call it a city) to discover, excavations, a museum and a great city view we got during our time!

Sad to say the Attraction was a let down. I appreciate the history of this place however it was poorly maintained, loads of overgrown ruins covered in weeds and lots of litter. Very limited facilities, one small dirty smelly toilet block when you enter through...More

The forum is big area of ancient buidings located in the center of Rome, close to the Colosseum. You can walk and admire paved roads and buildings. The ticket to Colosseum gives you acess to the Forum. Don't miss it!

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

We used the metro/bus system, which saved our feet for the time at the sites. We didn't see the need to do a hoho in Rome. It is useful in Budapest, but not in Vienna, as it goes too far out from the city center to give an... More

We were there last week. We didn't get to the Forum, but it is very close by. We visited the Coloseum and Palantine Hill separately. Buying tickets on line will save you a little time. Palantine Hill is a nice place to spend... More
