What people are saying:

The view from Palatine Hill is beautiful!! It looks like a long way up but the hike isn’t bad at all. There are bathrooms up there if you need them. The view of Rome is just spectacular and even more so when the sun is starting to set because there really is nothing like golden hour in Rome. It will be packed with people in the afternoon but we didn’t have a problem finding a spot to take pictures.

    Worth a daylight stroll

    An interesting array of historical ruins. Not very well lit in the Evenings so I would suggest a stroll around the area during the day.

    So much history

    We began our guided tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine hill at the hill. It’s an amazing place full of history. I’d recommended taking a guided tour so you don’t miss out on anything. Make ...

    An awesome experience and a huge area to explore. A good part of it you can see from outside. But it's a difference to walk on the ancient roman roads and see all the ruins of the old palaces. Hadn't...

Additional Information


Entrenched in the place where many claim modern history to have begun lies The Palatine; the heart of the City of Rome. The hill is the center-most of the Seven Hills of Rome and overlooks the Forum on one side and the Circus Maximus on the other. Considered the etymological origin of the word "palace," all that remains today of the great houses there is ruins. Recent excavations have shown that people have lived on the hill since 1,000 BC, adding to the history showcased there. A true archaeological and cultural reminder of man, power and time, The Palatine remains one of the must-see ruins of the world
