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
This was done on a guided tour which I would highly recommend. The guide was Italian and was absolutely fantastic. I learnt more about the history in one hour than in the 4 years at school. more »
We always have at least three different footwear in our bag all the time when we go to New place. We recommend you bring non-Instagrammable but comfortable shoe as the climb up those stones on wrong..... more »
Can be covered as a single ticket to forum
Truly an amazing monument! You must visit this place! The skip the line tour and guide were worth the money!
