Need to see it but be prepared for just ruins. The government needs to spend some money and at least provide some interpretative signs with virtual reconstructions so that the tourist has something to help see the scope and grandeur of this site.

For a whole afternoon - walk, talk, stroll and love these beautiful ancient ruins and take all the pictures. Sit and read if you want. It is quiet and low key and a welcome break from the vendors outside the Colosseum trying to sell you...More

Visit the neighbourhood of the regal, rich, and influential in ancient Rome. Worth the visit. Take it as part of the package offered by local guide companies-- they include the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. You really need to know what you are looking...More

Looking over this historic place gives you a real sense of what was there originally. The walkway is laid out with descriptions along the way. There are some street entertainers too.

Wonderful place to visit. Got a duel ticket for here and colosseum as they are next to each other. Very large site and not ideal for wheel chairs or the elderly

It's right next to the coliseum, you can buy a ticket for both attractions as it's cheaper than separate and it's definetly worth the money. The scenery makes you travel back in time and imagine the town like it used to be. Has very nice...More

Our tour of the colosseum included a tour of Palatine Hill and it would've been something we would have skipped had it not been for the tour HOWEVER we are so glad it was included! It gave us such a good insight into how Rome...More

So much history here. So many things to see...you won’t even know where to look or start! And the views are stunning! From every angle! Bring comfy shoes...and make sure you check the opening/closing times. Fall/winter are quite short...they’re closing pretty early and are not...More

If you visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum don't miss the Palatine Hill. Save at least a minimum of a half day to visit all 3.

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'd go for the audio tour of the Coliseum, bought online and look around the forum yourself, just buy tickets. You can always latch on to someone else's tour surreptitiously (yeah I'm a cheapskate!)

The tour I took was the Colliseum-Palatine Hill-Forum. There are lots of tour guides roaming around but I would guess they are not the best. I went with contexttravel which i found in a Rick Steves book. VERY good tour... More

No need to preorder tickets. Go to Palatine Hill which has shorter line up then Colosseum. Tickets are 12€ for both. Lines are shorter in the morning. We did a guided 5€ tour in the Colosseum but we didn't learn anything... More
