“wide open spaces with some special views of the Colosseum and the rest of Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We found that the best way to view the Palatine Hill and its sights was to purchase a combination ticket for the Palatine, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. We had purchased the tickets prior to departing from home, so all we had to do in Rome was to present our vouchers at the appropriate redemption window, and that saved us a lot of time that we would have wasted in three separate lines. Like most of these most popular sights, go either really early when they open or later on; both strategies might limit some of the crowds who will be touring alongside you. Since the Palatine has a lot to see, we chose to go early and were very fortunate, as crowds were minimal. Up here, the ruins were certainly something special to see, but we were especailly struck by the many unexpectedly glorious views of many of the most popular sights of Rome. Needless to say, this vantage point afforded many opportunities for beautiiful photographs.
