Walked around Palatine Hill today after Colosseum visit. Lots to see and do. Many steps and inclines so best bring a good pair of walking shoes. Very interesting place. A must do in Rome.

Best to remember that these are ruins and are just a ghost of the palaces which once stood here but their scale is still impressive. Brilliant views of the Forum and other parts of Rome. It is much easier to make sense of the Forum...More

I recommend you getting a dual ticket to see both this area and the colosseum, young eu members aged between 19 and 25 get in for only €7.50 so take a passport! This is a two day pass aswell and is worth it

Breathtaking remains of over 2000 years old history of kings and queens. This was the third time I was here but still seems as first time.

This is another must see if you're visiting Rome. I would recommend taking a guided tour or get a professional guided tour if at all possible. But either way you should go see it and enjoy the amazing history. You will not be disappointed.

It was great to be able to walk around the Palatine hill so freely. The buildings and remains here are great, and compared to the Colosseum there's much more freedom to walk and take your time.

So much history in one spot! Amazing walk, not too crowded. Audio guide is available but we choose to just walk around. There are signs around to tell you just enough about all buildings.

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
