A great visit with plenty of Roman architecture to keep you interested. Better to go with a guide as they will impart so much more, very interesting stories, take plenty of water as it can be a couple of hours to walk around.

It is big and very much in ruins. Do spend money to have someone to explain it to you. We only had electronic guide and got very confused with it and missed a whole lot of sites.

Stroll the Palentine Hill, relax from crowds and noise, enjoy the marvel of the buildings that once stood here along with an amazing view of Roman forum and Circus maximus.

Palatial splendor was the rule here...obviously the domain of the very wealthy. Beautiful green parks amidst the hustle and bustle nearby. Glorious homes of senators and wealthy merchants. A great place to walk and wander..September is the perfect time to be there. Close your eyes...More

This area is huge and contains many different buildings and exhibits. The general entry ticket excludes a few restricted areas and the museums, but the rest of the site is so full of history that it doesn't really matter. You'd need at least three days...More

What's to say? The "archaeological park" has all the history & characters you do and don't remember. Difficult to digest so many centuries of power & grandeur and then -- poof -- it's in ruins. Wow. Leaves one feeling a bit small, like that grain...More

We entered from Piazza de arco de Constantino entrance, and shortly after, about 10 minute walk from the entrance, we arrived at the amazing balcony where you can see the Forum and practically all Rome from above, it was amazing view.

Somuch to take in in the scale of this feature. Just a few metres from Colosseum and associated, yet different in what it offers.

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

I know that you can buy it there. Outside the colosseum near the entrance to the palatine hill the line is relatively short. At least when I visited. The ticket is for 2 days so you can see both places if you did not have... More
