Monte Palatino, Rome

4.3
#40 of 526 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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Monte Palatino by using our Rome trip itinerary planning website .

  • If it is highly recommended, some will tell you do not enter from the outside you can see everything, the truth does not compare walking between the whole area and there are some parts that do not look outside, if you have time visit it is must visit after the colosseum and Vatican

  • A beautiful place full of history, a beautiful walk to do with good shoes, a beautiful view once you arrive at the top. And that day guest a bird taking a break to be photographed
