Hot but awesome if you know your history

Very hot on the day we visited and it's quite dusty if rains haven't happened. Great views and great small musses on site.

Don't do this on a hot day:)...lots of walking but well worth it. Overseeing the Forum and just the splendor of the city is outstanding.

After viewing the Colosseum, the arch of Constantine is only a few hundred feet beyond and if you then take a left up the hill it's a nice detour for a rest in the shade. There is a museum up there but we only walked through some attractive gardens and used this as a viewing spot to look down on... More

What can I say... Rome has still awesome architecture left standing for us to see and admire. Brings a lot of pictures on your mind how Rome used to look back then. Bery beautiful indeed.

Another place with a lot of walking & climbing. Also, have someone to be your guide will be a better & more comprehensive experience.

The most impressive part of the Forum Romanun. You walk through history. This teaches you more than any history book will ever do. Take a good book or audio to guide you through the different parts...Just amazing and very impressive!

Very nice park containing old ruins and growing clementines on the trees. If you want to be naughty take one of the tree and you'll be able to taste the most succulent and luscious clementine! Many benches to sit down and relax on a hot day. Could take up to a few hours if you were to walk looking at... More

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
