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.

It is an enormously large place, a full city remained from old times. It was very relaxing to walk through the ancient walls. This is a full day's trip to visit most of the places and you still miss a lot. Impressive and well worth...More

Who is a historian or loves history and has clue about ancient Rome, totally worth it. Well preserved, clean. Loved the Colonna Train. Under published but nicer than other monuments.

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
