So the Palatine Hill is incredible for seeing where the Caesars resided and what great views they must have had, and that is the best part for sure. You can get some amazing pictures of the Colosseum and Roman Forum

Beautiful grounds. Take your time here. Explore each area and there are many. Take different paths, sit and rest and enjoy the views. Bring a picnic if it's warm enough :)

Wonderful area of ancient Roman history. Take the audio tour (free entry on Sundays) and wander through the ruins of the many temples and buildings used to govern the expansive empire

Visiting a site with so much history was great. However, we felt a bit lost as we didn't have an audio guide or tour. However, it was still very enjoyable experience, sometimes it is nice to absorb the site without listening to a tour or...More

Palatine Hill gives you a birds eye view of the Roman Forum. Just up from the Coloseum, these gardens are worth the climb!

Visited today with my mum. Disabled access available but is unfortunately limited. Some areas only accessible via stairs. What we saw was beautiful and worth seeing but due to accessibility unable to see it all.

It's just next to the Colosseo and you need atleast two hours to see it all. It's very beautiful and interesting with gorgeous buildings, fountain and cave liked light/movie show with music and water.

This must see attraction opens at 8:30 in the morning. Try to be there when it opens as Italy can be quite hot in the summer. You will need to bring water and sunblock with you. Enjoy!

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
