These ruins are not in the best of shape, but still worth the effort to go see them. Best Viewed from Palentine Hill

Spent an enjoyable few hours around the forum and Palatine hill on a day that wasn't stiflingly hot. There are so many layers of history in Rome and the forum is a great place to get a sense of this. I would suggest that a guide of some description would be very worthwhile. We tend to just wander round these... More

The Roman Forum is definitely a must see while in Rome. It is beautiful and impressive! One of the most beatifull historic place I have ever been. Since it is huge and with a lot to see, I would recommend 5 to 6 hours just there. With the same ticket you can go to the Coliseum and also to the... More

Totally worth it. A must see. Take lots of pictures. Incredible knowing the majority of structures were built during the reigns of Caesar & Augustus. Not too crowded. There are toilets inside & water machine (to buy) or right at the end we spotted a fountain with drinking water. It was 36' so wear a big hat & sun cream... More

We booked our tour with "the Roman guy" and loved the tour. It was 4 hours and be prepared to walk a bit as the terrain is uneven. We saw the Roman forum, imperial palace and colosseum in this tour. Would recommend to anyone.

There is so much to see and take in - just imagining the area 2 centuries ago with cattle grazing several meters above the existing floor level and then thinking of the peoples who have walked the paths you walk today, the history they created and their impact on western European civilisation.

Love returning here every time.. so much to see. The queuing in peak tourist season is a bit heavy... even when you buy a ticket online you queue to 'convert' it into another piece of paper. ..

We went here as part of our Walking Tours of Italy tour. It is very interesting to walk around and see the different areas. Would have enjoyed spending more time here. Close the colloseum and other attractions.
