12 euros for coliseum, Palatine hill and the forum. Great set of ruins, for those who appreciate what's here, other people had no restraint or knowledge of what they were looking at, I found that irritating. These places had life and much death and as such respect should be shown. As far as ruins go....these are some of the best... More

We can all agree that Rome has a lot of history - today was different - booked a tour and was in awe of the remains ruins and of course the history - must see when visiting Rome

The size of these ruins and the intimacy of the place is a testament to the Roman civilization.I spent my last FULL DAY in Rome simply walking through History after realizing that the Forum and The colosseum could , and probably , SHOULD take me a good deal more time to savour However this will have to wait for a...

This is in the category of one of the must sees. A good morning / day is needed to see and take everything in. It it wonderful to see so many buildings still standing despite their age.

Buy tickets to beat the queues and join the queue !! The visit is marred by the inefficiency of the Management of this place. TOP tip -- take a guide, there are no clear postings of what the various ruins were and after a few minutes in the crowd and under the sun you lose the will to stretch the... More

There is so much to see here and were so glad that we were on a tour, since there isn't a whole lot to read to find out what the ruins are from. (Our tour included Palatine Hill and the Colosseum and this was our favorite of the 3, although all of them are excellent.) We could have spent the... More

My wife and I bought tickets that covered Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and The Colosseum for €12 each, and this proved to be great value. The scale is hard to describe, but being here really is like being transported back in time, and it really is an amazing experience. We spent the day exploring Palatine Hill and the Forum,... More

This area is best to beat the huge queues for tickets which exist in colosseum. If you are without a guide you would be disappointed as they have not mentioned a clear path to visit the huge area, and by mistake we took a wrong turn and were in front of the exit. Dont forget to bring your hats, sunglasses... More

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.
