Monte Palatino, Rome

4.3
#38 of 252 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.

  • The best place in Rome. The most ancient. Boozed 5:00 under large trees in the Park. Not hot, a lot of drinking fountains. Plenty of places to relax in the shade. Not much, goes quickly, but only charge card. 12 euros. There is a point of Wai fai, but very weak. Need audio guide throughout Palanitina. There are several connection points through the headphones, but uncomfortable and always busy. Beautiful views of the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Capitol and other views of Rome.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
