4.6/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web
Civilization was managed for centuries from Palatine Hill, the commercial, religious, and political center of ancient Rome. The city on top of this hill looks down upon the age-old forum from a height of about 40 m (131 ft). Once an inhospitable marshland, the area was gradually drained and then turned into a hub of the city's political and economic activities. You may want to visit more than once to see everything, so remember that your ticket is good for two days. You can access these sites only by foot over a bumpy path with stones from the ancient Roman period. You may want to rent an audio guide at a nearby booth.

  • Historic place with nothing to highlight, ruins everywhere. It is a place to visit if you have time.

  • Specially as part of the Colosseum experience, the Palatine Hill is definitely worth visiting. The panorama over Rome, and specially the Colosseum quarter, is amazing 
  • After the Coliseum the tour continues in the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, the place alone makes us go back in time and imagine what life was like at that time. We were in the winter and still had a lot of Sun and it was very hot, I recommend a hat, comfortable shoes and water.

  • Great place with an amazing history. A must when visiting Rome! Don't recommend that you buy the audio guide since it basically repeats what's written on the signs.
  • No queue if you already have a ticket, just the security check. Nice view of Rome and good walk when shyning
  • One could easily spend one whole day walking through the ruins!! Amazing place!
  • Very interesting. Large parc, a lot of history...
  • An incredible place, testimony of an incredible and rich history. Must see!
