The Palentine Hill is part of the Roman Forun experience. It is a great place to sit and picnic while you just take in the sites. Bring a backpack or a bag of easy to peal fruit or snacks and a bottle of water. If you buy fruit from a vender in the morning, BEFORE you leave the stand, lookin... More

If you have purchased a ticket to the colosseum then chances are this will include free entry into this attraction. Well worth checking out and you will be in history overload. Allow a couple of hours to expire the ruins but a great opportunity to take photos as the view is fantastic.

Palatine Hill is a beautiful place full of lots of different quirky things! You can see the old buildings and the arches. You also can walk up to the top of the hill and have a great view of the Forum and the Colosseum.

Great place to take photos and take in a bird's eye perspective of the forum and and other ancient sites! Be prepared for a little bit of trek but well worth it.

Out of the 3 neighbouring sites (others being the Forum and the Colosseum) Palatine Hill was the one I enjoyed the most. It may not have the same visual impact of the other two, but it has a much more relaxed atmosphere. You don't have to wait in a big line to get in, and the people around you seem... More

This is a great view of forum and colleseum . It is a unique view of the ruins. There is a cost. But it is a must see.

Amazing! A real surprise, so glad we went. Full of history and great for the children to be in the middle of all that history.

Great place to see a lot of Roman History. Some areas under restoration but does not create much of a problem. Found the site to be a little less crowded than many others.

There will always be lots of people walking through the main part of the Forum between the Colosseum and the Capitoline museum, but this area is a little quieter and will provide you with some lovely views and the chance to see some of the old stadium areas and Casa Olivia which is the house that has been uncovered.
