A lovely park with plenty to do and great views

You can hire segways, bikes, go-cart, rowing boats, 4 person bikes, so plenty to do. Lots of sculptures to look at and great views of Rome. There is a also a beautiful looking... read more

There is a also a beautiful looking restaurant there which is fine dining so we didn't stop. If you've got the money I would say this restaurant would be top of the list. Nice... More

Viewed the forum which is amazing, then walked up this erm hill. It's ok, part of the rome experience, but once you've seen the forum this is nothing but a hill.

Obviously where the rich people lived, overlooking the Forum, and you see this hill from various aspects within the Colosseum too, so you have some great photo opportunities. Lovely quiet areas to walk around with obviously fabulous views from all areas.

This area was nice for a walk but not much else. There are some sites which have a rich history but no where near as good as the Roman Form which is connected. I would still go again, but if I was pushed for time there are more impressive sights to see.

We visited Palatine Hill at about 11ish in April and there was only a small queue, only about 10 people in front of us. And we bought our ticket the day before from when we visited the Colosseum - €12 for the Colosseum, The Forum and Palatine Hill! You can use your ticket for 24 hours which is brilliant! It... More

From what I gathered the Palatine Hill is at the peak of the area including the Roman Forums - those you have to see, it was great to literally walk through a piece of ancient history, and many photos were taken. Only thing is when we tried to find the Palatine Hill in order to peruse the amazing views of... More

It is a climb after spending time in the Forums. We also nearly took the exit from the forum as there were no clear guided paths. The view from the top and amazing Orange trees on the top is a must see. You will spend atleast 3-4 hours in the forum and on the hill as they are next to... More

I would definitely recommend this. You should allow about half a day for the whole experience and definitely see it with a guided tour. There is so much to learn and the view at the top is simply breathtaking. We went with our little girl in a stroller/push chair and managed just fine. Also nice grass areas of kids to... More
