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.

Here there are 1200 years of our history, the history of the birth of civilization. Is a fantastic place, magical, unique in the world. You can not come to Rome and not come to this unique place. It is not to be missed.
Loved it. Walking amongst ruins and reading the history is fascinating. Go to the left side as you look at the hill as entrance queue often shorter.
Beautiful view of Rome. Make sure you visit there with a guided tour if you want more than beautiful selfies up there.
