I was amazed how uncrowded this was compared to the Forum. The ruins are just amazing and the setting is beautiful. It seems like everyone goes to the Forum and then skips the Palatine Hill. There is a ton to see here!

It is possible to imagine you were a well-off member of Roman society as you wander around the ruins of houses and palaces in this residential district of ancient Rome. One marvels at the sheer height of some of the buildings.

Lots of climbing - be warned. Amazing insight into how a few of the Emperors lived and built. Bath complexes over bath complexes. Gardens to die for. Some mediaeval and beyond stuff confusing the picture, but well worth the visit. Be warned - the Palatine Museum is shut til September 2014.

We brought tickets for the Colosseum for 12 EURO which included entry to Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. I don't know if you can by separate tickets for Palatine Hill and the forum, there were kiosks outside the entrance. If it is possible ques for just these attractions were very small but if you want to visit the Colosseum... More

Such a great, amazing historical site. However, we went mid-day time and it was really crowded and hot too. I recommend going later in the day, but for sure going.

We visited here in June as part of our 12€ ticket to the Colloseum and Roman Forum. I wasn't expecting it to be in such a big area - it's huge! The gardens are well maintained, there are lots of information boards telling you about the ruins and buildings that are / were there. There are fantastic view if Rome,... More

This place is enormous, we thought we could spend an hour there and then do something else but it is well worth the three hours we spent wandering around the site.

Although in ruins, Palatine hill was one of my favourite things in Rome. Beautiful ruins with a lovely garden and the ‘foundations of Rome’ if stories are to be believed. The view over the to the forum and beyond are stunning. Spent so long looking round! Ticket prices are good and include the forum and the colosseum or you can... More
