This is a stunning place! The view over Rome is amazing. The grounds are beautiful. Like the Roman Forum, we walked around on our own without a guide and read the information provided at our leisure.

The ruins at the Roman Forum are a few minutes away from the Colloseum. Another must see when in Rome. Better to have a guide to explain what is what.

Palatine Hill contains the ruins of the 2000 year old Roman Imperial palaces that ones covered the whole hill. What is left are mainly walls, many of them impressive. I recommend taking a guided tour to fully understand and appreciate the site and its history...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

Hi The entrance into the forum is gradual but it’s over the old roman flag stones so very uneven. The upper levels again can be accessed by a gradual incline or steps with resting places. It’s worth the climb at a steady... More

I'd go for the audio tour of the Coliseum, bought online and look around the forum yourself, just buy tickets. You can always latch on to someone else's tour surreptitiously (yeah I'm a cheapskate!)
