The place where you can see the past of Rome from a veranda. Wonderful gardens and ruins to explore, and places to rest and try to understand this complex history

This is the quieter and most ancient part of the city. The ruins and columns left standing here are very impressive and well preserved. The area is huge and it overlooks the Roman Forum on one side. A great vantage point with nice views.

Vast palace complex with hippodrome and private houses. Unfortunately, not as well-known as the next-door Forum and Coliseum, but to my opinion it was the best visit of the three. I bought the combined €18.00 ticket for Forum/Palatino/Coliseum in the morning, with audio for Palatino,...More
