Monte Palatino, Rome

(4.2/5 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.

  • The Palatine and Roman Forum can be visited together, a single site in fact - combined with the Colosseum ticket. Very nice because more shady and in principle less crowded (you have to walk a little more than the Roman Forum) - he travels in the middle of ancient splendours and gives a beautiful view of Rome - Yes, we're on one of the seven hills of the eternal city!

  • We made the visit to l for signs... To do! Very few people because all do not go at the end of the circuit and focuses especially on the forum... Beautiful view of the Colosseum, pine trees, calm and serenity! Arrived at the top a beautiful view on the forum
