The history behind this area is stunning. To do it justice I would recommend some pre-reading or a guide. When we went the heat was intense and the ground very dusty. I would have liked to have spent longer but we needed to nip from...More

It was great to be able to walk around the Palatine hill so freely. The buildings and remains here are great, and compared to the Colosseum there's much more freedom to walk and take your time.

So much history in one spot! Amazing walk, not too crowded. Audio guide is available but we choose to just walk around. There are signs around to tell you just enough about all buildings.

This was pretty fabulous...until I started coming across the "art" pieces that are apparently part of an exhibit there. So, scattered thorughout the beautiful ruins are some cloth "art" pieces on the aqueduct, a giant plastic looking rocket ship of some kind on top of...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
