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.

  • Very beautiful landscape and architecture. Definitely a must see for first timers going to Rome. Did this together with the Forum Romanum.

  • Closes by 6:30pm even in rush tourist season
  • Pretty trees. Sunny and little shade on summer day. Free cold water fountains everywhere.
