Free tickets for u18 12 € tickets ( colosseo and palatine hill) Spent 3 hours there , could have spent more : aqueduct , temples , ruins , arc , view over the city ... very nice place, walked there for over 3 hours It would have been better if there were audioguides to rent

This place is incredible if you're in Rome you must visit! You'll be amazed at how much of Ancient Rome is still left! Also visit the forum too! Although we found the chariot racing arena to be a bit of disappointment compared to the forum and Palatine hill! So if your short for time stick to these two and the... More

Rome is one of the cities you can walk and explore all day without getting disinterested, always something exciting to see and the "Hill" is no exception ....... Walk where the Romans walked many many centuries ago, where Julius Caesar was when he was killed, then walk thru to the Parthenon ....... You could spend 2 whole days here and... More

Queues for the combined pallantine, forum and colleseum tickets are very much shorter here, just as the guide books stated. So take the metro to the stop after colleseo and take the short walk down the hill, passing the circus maximus on your way and enter via the pallantine gate. Loos available at this entrance and pallantine museum inside the... More

This probably would not have been as good if you just walk through it yourself. We ended up paying an extra 13 euro each(25 each total) outside of the Colleseo and getting a guided tour for both the Colleseo and Palatine Hill. We were told the story of all the buildings, the rulers from 1 AD, and some local tips.... More

If you're looking for the remainings of the Ancient Rome's grandour, this is what is left of them. And there is plenty of ruins, outlining a great civilization of the past. There is also a freat panorama of the city, which you will certainly appreciate. You definitely should not miss it!

If you love history, Rome is the place to be. Around every corner is a reminder of the past. This attraction wasn't far from our hotel and enjoyed looking at all these reminders of the past.
