If visit rome , everybody must visit this important historical area. I have been 2 times (one alone and the secon time with my daughter), and we loved it. But you must be prepared for a long walking.

Do not miss Palatine hill and a combined visit to Forum Romanum. You can see the most impressive remains of Roman architecture. It is also one of the best places to see a view of the whole city. There is a collection of pieces of...More

I really enjoyed Palatine Hill with it's open spaces, ruins, and mosaics. What I remember most is the amazing views of the Forum and the Colosseum. Seeing it all from above let me picture how it all fit together. I really recommend going to Palatine...More

we did this as part of a guided tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Good to do the tour if you like history, worth a visit for the amazing views.

There was a contemporary art exhibition on with some really nonsensical exhibits but the Hill itself offers you sweeping views and little peeks at teh Colosseum. My husband loved it his first trip and hence we all went in - it also offers shorter lines...More

There's some great views on this hill of all of ancient Rome. It's unbelievable how these sights are still here today!

Interesting if you have time for this but if you are on a tight schedule then give it a pass. Interesting if you know a little about the area and it's history and can relate.

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

We used the metro/bus system, which saved our feet for the time at the sites. We didn't see the need to do a hoho in Rome. It is useful in Budapest, but not in Vienna, as it goes too far out from the city center to give an... More

We were there last week. We didn't get to the Forum, but it is very close by. We visited the Coloseum and Palantine Hill separately. Buying tickets on line will save you a little time. Palantine Hill is a nice place to spend... More
