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.

  • A great view of the ancient roman ruins. A lesson in construction and in architecture and also in art. Great place to see the might of the romans. 
  • Mount Palatine was born Rome, came the story. The Palatine Hill is within the Imperial fora accessible via a ticket that allows you to get inside the Coliseum. On this site you can see many remnants of monuments, arches, and more ... ... In short, in this precise point was born Rome!

  • A way of visit the ancient Rome is enter by the Palatine, visit the Forum Roman and exit for enter in the Coliseum with it input acquired jointly with it of the Palatine, without losing time in endless queues. The Palatine Hill hosts the remains of the spectacular Palace of Domitian, of the residence of Augusto, the stadium, the Temple of Cybele, the Fernese gardens, the Museum and Palatine antiquarium, etc. The visit serves to get an idea of the dimension of all of the above and also from the Roman Forum, to take a view of it from the heights. The guides play a fundamental role in order to have a properly informed and orderly visit. Signage and information in the area is scarce. Is interesting take the visit with calm and be willing to walk by a space quite broad.
