Palantine Hill - Rome
Seven Hills of Rome
The city of Rome was founded on the Palatine, one of the most ancient parts of the city. The Palantine is the most famous of Rome’s seven hills. Archaeological discoveries included prehistoric remains and imperial palace ruins. The original city of Romulus was built upon Palatine Hill, the highest of the original three summits. The Palantine Hill is located adjacent to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Explore the hill at your leisure. Important sites include: Imperial Palaces, view of Circus Maximus, The Palantine Museum, Houses of Augustus and Livia, The Roman Huts, Cryptoporticus, and Farnese Gardens.
Admission to Palantine Hill is included in a combined ticket to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. If you plan to see all three attractions, try to spread your visit over two days because there’s a lot to see. And be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Purchase tickets in advance or go to the Palantine Hill entrance at Via di San Gregorio and buy your tickets.
