I loved this more than anything in Rome! You can use your combo ticket with the Colosseum to get in. Make sure you bring a water bottle because there are none for sale inside.

Beautiful grounds. Very informative with nice shaded areas and places to fill up your water bottles. Definitely worth a visit in the morning, or later in the afternoon, to miss the heat of the day in the summer.

My husband and i came to the Roman Forum in November 2013 and we like it so much - we spend the whole day there and could have spent more time but we were short of time - so we came back in February 2015 to take our daughter - some much human history throughout the ages - incredible

Such a cool experience to be able to walk through these ancient ruins. Very cool to go up to Palatine Hill as well to see the brother Romulous's House ruins. Learned a great deal from our city wonders guide about how Rome was started and built so long ago.

We happened to be passing by the night video show and decided to get tickets. One of the best things we saw in Rome. Well produced and really gave you a sense of the history and scale of ancient life. Would recommend including this in your must see plans.

A must see, no need for long explanations... Only remembet that same ticket with the Colosseo is valid here and they may be bought (with some extra reservation fee) at the internet. You will still need yo wait about 20 mins for the Colosseo; less for the Roman Forum

Such an interesting place to sightsee following on from the Colloseum . A huge area to walk round, hilly and quite exhausting (so flat shoes recommended) but well worth the visit.

Here it all started... where Rome was built, not in a day ;) Make sure you have plenty of time when visiting and it's best to buy tickets in advance. This is a place everyone visiting Rome should see <3

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
