The Roman Forum and Palatine hill are on the same ticket as the Colosseum. If you can, visit the Colosseum on a separate day.The ticket lasts two days but you can only visit each site once. The Forum and Palatine Hill are treated as one site. There is a lot to see at the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. So... More

It's so centrally and conveniently located next to the Colosseum you can't miss it. There's also so many ruins and history behind it all, it's a must see.

Having been to the Roman forum 10 years ago,we were interested in seeing the more recent excavations. The area is jammed packed with Ancient History is very interesting to walk about and absorb. We were, however, very disappointed to find that huge helicopters were allowed to hover overhead. This made the experience unpleasant. The noise was such that we were... More

a good way to spend a few hours and try to imagine how it would be like in ancient roman times. lots of signs around too, so dont think you need the audio guide.

A wonderful place to soak up Roman history. A pleasant walk through the streets surrounded by remnants of the ancient era. If you love your history then this is a must see. Be prepared to spend a while here as there is so much to see and so much atmosphere to soak up. Do not buy bottles of water from... More

Incredible site filled with identifiable and uncommon remnants of the empire. Italy could do so much more in terms of providing interpretation and deepening the visitor's understanding of this very large and invaluable site.

It's a few years since we went to Rome but one of the lasting highlights was a visit to the forum where visiting American history students gave free guided tours of the Forum and the Colosseum. Their comments and details helped to bring to life the fabulous history of the Roman Empire which was governed from the Forum and was,... More
