Having read many Roman fiction novels I wanted to visit the place where the nobility had their houses. In the sunshine this place is beautiful and relaxing with good views and lovely gardens. It is not as frequented by tourists as other parts of the ruins so a good place to unwind

We did the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palantine Hill group guided tour. While all the sights were quite interesting the guide moves at a steady pace and we felt much of the information and sights were not fully discussed. By the time we arrived at Palantine Hill the guide wanted to wrap up and depart for her next tour. We... More

Palatine Hill is a vantage point atop a small hill with commanding views of ancient Rome. The views are spectacular with numerous ancient ruins of the Roman Forum and also amazing views of the Colosseum. You could literally spend hours admiring the views and taking pictures. Entry to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill is available with the Colosseum ticket.

There is a deep rich history without a lot of the actual building left here. It is a place you need to visit while at the Colosseum and Arch of Constantine...

The Palatine Hill is the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 40 metres above the Roman Forum, looking down upon it on one side, and upon the Circus Maximus on the other. Is overcrowded as usual. If you pay an guide for Colosseum usually they offer...

Here you can see the ruins of the ancient Rome. From here you can see the arch dear triumph, various forums, statues if famous leaders. Also the magnificent church at the top. The view from this area is exquisite and you feel that you are in ancient times.

Definitely a must, the climb is easy and very enjoyable. Apart from the incredible view of Rome, you will also see the rose gardens, a fountain and other amazing sights. There is also a museum at the top.

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighborhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
