Ticket to this place is combined with Colloseo, so this is a must see place, and if you think that you can see everything without entering, you are wrong (I thought that first). It is so impressive, when You know from what times these remains are. And from this hill there is amazing View. There are places where you can... More

From the outside an impressive ruinbut take a guide ( we had a very good one ) and this amzing place comes top life. Allow at least 2 hours to take it all in and a water bottle is a must you will need to stop several times at the many water points during the summer heat.

If you enjoy and want to do a nice leisurely walk through ruins, this is worth doing. But you definitely need time. We visited the palatine hill after the colosseum and the roman forum and were exhausted! We started with the colosseum at 9 am, finished viewing the forum by 11 and then continued to the palatine hill. By then... More

If you like ancient Rome and history, i think this is one of the best places where you can see in one place the greatness and might of the Rome from the time of its glory. Also, one of the positive things about it is that there is not a lot of people.

I am really glad I did this. These ruins are much more interesting than just one stadium. It used to be a commercial hub and has some great views. Don't miss this, especially if you're going to the Colosseum.

This was quiet and beautiful to walk through, although many couples took the opportunity to show their amorous side and take up the pathways, so you will have to try to skirt around them. Signs are in Italian and English!

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!
