Lots to see

Unfortunately we did not get a map with our tickets. Thus we walked through the palatine "on memory" after reading quite a lot about it. It was great fun anyway

First of all: you can get one ticket to visit Palatino, Foro Romano and Colosseum (12 euros for an adult).

These ruins have been well preserved. While we were visiting they were working on the Palace. Very well laid out and you are able to get a good idea of how things were 2500 years ago.

If you are interested in History, this place is a must visit. Though there is not much left, here were the palace of the Emperor. There are quite a few remains of ancient buildings.

Beautiful! We paid to go by ourselves to tour throughout this breathtaking historical landmark. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience that I'd love to do again. I'd recommend getting a tour guide so you can learn about the history.

Amazingly rich and diverse archaeological remains that feeds your imagination and truly shows the central place Rome has in Mediterranean and European history. Highly recommended.

Staying in Aventine

Neighbourhood Profile
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
