Monte Palatino, Rome

(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Monte Palatino and discover more family-friendly attractions in Rome using our Rome vacation planner.

  • Better known under the name of "Palantin". This visit is not to be missed. She will immerse you in the lives of the inhabitants of ancient Rome. Many buildings are still standing and in a State often very respectable. The view of the Forum, at the foot of the mount, is sometimes spectacular. It is possible to see the centre of Rome in some places. Recommended Guide!

  • Adult history as a place where learning sense of feel good, but have not provided sidewalk strollers with children is not recommended. Yourself is 2 km long for a child to walk is recommended.
