As part of an online ticket of Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum of 14 Euro this is certainly a great sight unlike Palatine Hill. You can photograph an on-site map as I did or read through the signs, although for some reasons many of the English ones were worn out. Spend 1-1.5 hours here. Plenty of photo spots. Umbrella...

You could spend days here. The size and history is just overwhelming. Bring comfortable shoes! See where Julius Ceaser was cremated, temples, and so much more!!!!!

Very interesting. Again public toilet facilities had long queues and inadequate. Allow plenty of time to visit. Can get a ticket to combine three places of interest in easy location to each other.

A real experience to walk in the footsteps of the historic figures that passed through. Be sure to spend enough time to visit with the colosseum, Palatine Hill and Capitoline Hill which are virtually connected.

if you like roman history then this is the place to be, tells its own story as you walk around, be careful though, don't go in the entrance by the coliseum, long queues, go around to the northern side, there is another entrance with hardly any queue

Coming from a country with only just over two hundred years of history this is a place to find amazing with so much history to it and changes over centuries. Just to walk around and immerse yourself is a wonderful experience in itself. You begin to wonder what life was really like all those years ago. This is a definite... More

So much to see here but be aware that there are long security queues. Once inside you find that the area is vast and not at all spoilt

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.
