You'll need a good full day to get through all of this. Thankfully you can get a ticket valid for two days that also gets you Into the Colosseum as well. Take the road from the colosseum to the Circus Maximus, there is a gated entrance half way down that has much smaller queues than the main entrance! Take your... More

This is next door to the Colosseum. As we exited the Colosseum, we continued on with the Roman Forum. You do need a ticket, but it's a combination ticket with the Colosseum, so "use it or lose it" kind of deal. It was hot when we were there during the first week of September 2014, so we didn't get to... More

Right near the Colosseum, this is wonderful to walk through. It is very well preserved. It's easy to walk around by yourself, but wear comfy shoes.

Had my husband and I not done a Private tour with Veronica from Private tours of Rome, we would have absolutely no idea of what the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill was. On first glimpse it looks like a collection of rubble however through our tour we learnt what everything was or what it was used for. What it was... More

Our tour of the Colosseum included the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. Try getting there early in the morning to beat the heat. We did a tour around noon and it got extremely hot and humid. Besides that, a great place to visit to experience the center of ancient Roman public life. Our tour guide carried a book with... More

What a wonderful place to visit. We were there in May and it was quite busy. A great place to walk around and take photos. Must has been an amazing place in all it's glory. It's right next to the Colosseum so only a short walk. We didn't do a tour, just wandered around ourselves. Lots of people visiting, especially... More

Great place to wander through after visiting the Colosseum and is every bit as impressive. Amazing history and there's plenty to read about it along the pathways. The ruins are very well preserved making it easier to picture what it once must have looked like. Wished I had given it more time.

This was my third time to the Forum. It's stunning every time. And what's particularly interesting is that it's still a working archeological site so each time I've visited there's been a new discovery unearthed! Do try and visit first thing when it opens. Not only will you beat the midday heat but also the large tour groups. Our kids... More

It is so hard for me to say WHICH attraction I loved best! This probably was in my top 5! I studied Latin and Mythology in high school and still read a lot of historical romances. Beautiful!
