Take time to walk the grounds and imagine yourself back during the Roman empire (preferably as a noble). There is so much history here and changes,additions over the years and how the space was used,

One of the seven hills of Rome and in my opinion one of the best due to its view, history and sense of how Rome was governed.

It is advisable to pre book this venue as it gets very busy. It is a fair climb to get to the top of the hill but it is well worth the effort.

I am running out of things to say about Roman Ruins. All so cool and all worth visiting. This is one of my favorite sites. Another must see when in Rome.

It's a trudge, and a serious one at that, but worth it if you can handle it. I saw no wheelchairs or scooters attempting it. There are vistas, and ancient buildings with an indoor waterfall, and more vistas, and more ancient buildings.

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
