"Palantine Hill: The Birthplace of Rome" Palatine Hill Tip by wilocrek

Palatine Hill, Rome: 78 reviews and 157 photos

It is said that Rome was founded on Palantine Hill, which is home to some of the oldest structures in Rome. Sadly many visitors miss out on Palatine Hill because they are unaware that its something they can visit or they fail to realize that admission is included when you buy a ticket for the Coliseum. Palatine Hill is worth visiting for the view from the top that offers a panoramic view of the Roman Forum. Additionally the gardens surrounding Palatine Hill are beautiful and worth experiencing and the back end of Palatine Hill also offers a view of Circus Maximus. You can gain entrance through the Roman Forum or from the side entrance on the main street that runs from the Arch of Constantine.
