4.3/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • I will talk about the history of the place, for that are written guides, or the audio guides or hire a guide, negotiate price with the large amount that is there, not to us us asked about € 36 per person you is you tails and explain you everything you want and know the place. We chose this place to start the historic area tour because that was the one which had the shortest queue, after seeing the Colosseum and the Forum, in this time of tail was about 10 minutes. The entrance out €12, including visit to the Palatine, the Forum and the Colosseum. It is valid for two days, or they can distribute to the visits to the three sites. Wear very comfortable shoes and also eager to go. They allow transporting liquids and backpack. At the entrance warn that not is you can buy liquids inside travel but inside had several areas with machines of drinks and food. Look at other comments that I have made for more information on the area. Salut.

  • Overall I was disappointed by the forum and the Palatine Hill. There is not much else indicated and only remains in ruins. We have to imagine the rest. BOF
