I was quite naive about Rome, lots of friends gave advice but none actually managed to convey the wow factor! We started with Palatine Hill because we'd walked down to the Circus Massimo and on the way back was a short queue so we sent in. We got ourselves happily lost in there for hours, so much to explore and... More

Take a tour. You will learn more. Not that much to see up on the Hill. The museum was okay and a good break from the sun, but the views were probably the best part of going up the hill. Make time for it after the Colloseum.

If you can use the words beautiful and ruins in the same sentence, this is the place for it. It was very impressive.

This is a lovely area near the Colosseum. Hard to get a long view without a map/guide but worth visiting.

That was my favourite activity in Rome. You can go there with your Coloseum ticket. I spent 2 or 3 hours there, walking on the steps of thousands of years old History and it was breath taking. Go as early as possible as it super hot and you can take the audio guide.

Having done the tour with private guide, she suggested doing Colosseum first. The reasoning was simple, it gets damn crowded after 9:30. Palatine Hill offers majestic views of the Downtown Roman Empire, you can see all from the top. Plus it's Nero's home which oversees the Circus Maxximus. ( This was a sick dude). For me the climb was a... More

We spent a long time wandering around this old site and it was so interesting. It is only a few minutes from colisseum but few people there when we went which made the wander that much more enjoyable - unlike the packed colisseum.

Do a walking tour, you won't regret it! It was so awesome to learn about the ruins here, there was not enough time to see it all!
