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.

Love the history of this place. You can tell the Rome Archeology Society is trying to save it. But every year there is some loss. Better see it before it is too late.
Amazing for all ages of people. Even if you don’t know a lot about Roman history you will get to learn a lot. If you are a history fan you will definitely love this place
