Monte Palatino, Rome

4.1
#43 of 459 in Historic Sites in Rome
Standing 40 m (130 ft) above the Roman Forum, Monte Palatino represents one of the Seven Hills of Rome and one of the oldest parts of the city. According to legend, Romulus founded Rome here in 754 BCE. Walk among the ruins of the buildings where Roman emperors and other aristocrats resided, and view the gardens that still remain. Look down upon Circus Maximus, the Roman Forum, and the Coliseum below. Stop by the Palatine Museum to see ancient artifacts and displays from the Iron Age. Tennis or hiking shoes are most suitable for exploring the grounds due to the uneven footing.

  • Superb ride in the remains of houses, temples and palaces. Overlooking the Roman forum, this ancient site is pleasant to visit. We stayed there for more than 2 hours, so he much to see.

  • I have a dual impression from visiting of the Palatine. This is the place the founding of Rome. Those remnants you can introduce all the beauty and grandeur of the imperial palaces of different eras. Walking through the ruins of the palaces of Augustus, Flavius, Domitian, think about the luxury in which the Roman emperors lived. But I was surprised that all the museums on the Palatine were closed-House of Libya, Palatine Museum and others. Closed kriptoportik Nero and Caligula. There is no information about this at the box office and not reducing the cost of the ticket. I am so dreaming see frescoes in the House of Libya. But no luck. There is no direct passage from the Forum on the Palatine, as was previously the case. Service in Rome gets worse every year.

  • You can visit with the entrance to the Colosseum + Forum Romanum. Go with comfortable shoes because there are ups and downs, offers a nice view to the Forum

  • Excellent view, go with comfortable shoes as being many hours touring the place and the road is not smooth. Maybe start the tour knowing the Palatine and then the Roman Forum so you are near the exit. They are connected and facing the Coliseum (must cross to get to these two points). You can buy the ticket within the Coliseum for 12,00 euro per person (we accept cash and cards), and admission is valid for two days and gives you access to: Colosseum, Palatine and Roman Forum. Remember to give you like to post if you did help :)
