Civilization was managed for centuries from Palatine Hill, the commercial, religious, and political center of ancient Rome. The city on top of this hill looks down upon the age-old forum from a height of about 40 m (131 ft). Once an inhospitable marshland, the area was gradually drained and then turned into a hub of the city's political and economic activities. You may want to visit more than once to see everything, so remember that your ticket is good for two days. You can access these sites only by foot over a bumpy path with stones from the ancient Roman period. You may want to rent an audio guide at a nearby booth. Put Palatine Hill and other Rome attractions into our Rome holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Palatine Hill Reviews
El foro romano es alucinante. Conserva lo que es el centro romano antiguo con todos los edificios relevantes y en torno a qué se hacía vida. Id con tiempo, pues es una visita larga si lo queréis ver t... more »The Roman Forum is amazing. It preserves what is the ancient Roman center with all the relevant buildings and around what was made life. Go with time, it is a long visit if you want to see everything and will not give you time, because it is worth getting lost and not realize the time.
Comme tous les batiments religieux et les ruines de rome , ce lieu est a voir absulument ! Parfaitement entretenu....endroit magique ! Incontournable more »Like all the religious buildings and the ruins of Rome, this place is to be seen absulument! Perfectly maintained.... magical place! that can't be overlooked
Loved it. Walking amongst ruins and reading the history is fascinating. Go to the left side as you look at the hill as entrance queue often shorter.
Beautiful view of Rome. Make sure you visit there with a guided tour if you want more than beautiful selfies up there.
