Nice sight, very well looked after
Oct 2021
The sight is clean and larger than I thought, so bring at least 2 hours if you wanna see it all. I would probably recommend doing a guided tour, because otherwise it's just a garding with a bunch of old stones (unless you are very invested in roman history)

Great view of the entire forum romanum. In my opinion, it is worth going there after visiting everything up close. It makes an incredible impression.

Nice walk on Palatine
Sep 2021
Actually not a must see when in Rome. It's just an addition to the Forum Romanum. Book the extended itenerary if you wanna visit some things on site, otherwise it's just the walk. Nevertheless, on top of the Palatino you have a great view on the Forum Romanum and Colosseum.

When you finish with the Colosseum head on over to Palatine Hill. Make sure that he wear comfortable clothes and shoes he will be doing a lot of walking while touring Rome. Make sure your phone is charged and that way you can take plenty of pictures of all the sites that you will see.

We actually enjoyed our visit to Palatine Hill more than that of the Colosseum. So much history and such beautiful views.

Losts to see...

So much history... Lots to explore... Avoid it in August as it is the hottest month in Rome and the sun and humidity will ruin your visit. Purchase the Full Experience ticket to gain access to all the exhibits here. Sun screen, a hat and good walking shoes are your friends here.

Very nice park. Quiet and relaxing. Better than Roman Forum at the bottom. Routing of toilets could be better.

Superb views from the hill across the Forum below and some lovely gardens on the way up there. Our guide Sarah was outstanding as I stated under my City Wonders review.

THE HILL
Nov 2020
Very large site especially if you have already visited the Colosseum first. I would advise anyone to visit this place first in the morning when the crowds are low and then visit the Colosseum in the afternoon.
