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.

  • Totally beautiful, a view that they fall in love. Definitely a place to visit, if in a journey of couple, not to be missed!

  • I got a ticket by internet for the Colosseum, Palatine and Roman Forum. In the brochure with information that give you to collect your ticket, comes written in Italian that the ticket office closes at 16:00 o'clock but the closure of the Palatine is at 17:00 h. When we have to enter to them 16:10 h, us say in the entry that already is closed because close to them 16:00 h, which is completely lie because the schema of closing is to them 17:00 h. It seems to me a robbery because we have been deceived and ripped off €12 per person.
