Palatine Hill, Rome
(4.6/5 based on 14,000+ 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.

  • Absolutely worthwhile attraction that provides great views of Rome. There is plenty of room to walk around here and lots of opportunities for photos.
  • Really nice place, I didn't expect much but actually I enjoyed it more than the coliseum. Also you can get nice views of the coliseum, the Rome forum and the city.
  • Beautiful hill filled with roman ruins. A must see next to the colosseum.
  • Such cool old ruins. In some ways more enjoyable than Colosseum. Though there are lots of people here there's more space and with the people spread out it feels as though there's much more space.
  • Beautiful ruins that are a must to see. I purchased the tickets to visit the Colosseum and the Palatine hill for €12 on the official website. I saved money by "guiding" myself using Wikipedia. Skip the eternally long lines by purchasing your tickets in advance!
