Create an itinerary including Palatine Hill
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.

  • The Farnese gardens on the Palatine Hill and a great antidote to the busy-ness of Rome with beautiful views out over the Roman Forum. Wonderfully romantic!

  • Spent half a day walking around. Enjyoede both the old historical places and in particular the vegetation and small areas with trees and plant. Like a big park

  • This is visited as part of the Roman Forum. You will find many ruins which testify to the grandeur of the Roman History. The views from above are incredible.
  • Visited early November and it was quite busy due to lots of guided tour groups however wait time was minimum and the views of this historic ruins is simply stunning and I wouldn’t recommend missing!
