Roman Forum and Palatine Hill | Things to do in Lazio | Citalia

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Set adjacent to The Colosseum, the Roman Forum was once at the very heart of this ancient city, and today represents the location of many of Rome’s best-preserved monuments. It’s one of the city’s most famous sights, and has been drawn by renowned artists over the centuries, including J.M.W. Turner. Like a historic playground, the site is now open for visitors to explore, with dozens of remarkable monuments to see. Amidst the Forum are original Roman roads, which divide the vast number of features into easily-manageable sections. Top sights include the magnificent Arch of Titus, which was the model for Paris’ Arc de Triomphe, and the unfinished Basilica of Maxentius – the Forum’s largest structure. Standing above the entire scene is the Palatine Hill – one of Rome’s seven hills, adorned with an impressive ruinous palace complex.

Booking onto a tour is highly recommended as a knowledgeable guide can highlight the most interesting monuments, and also provide hassle-free access to the complex.

Opening hours: The complex is open throughout much of the year, with varying times depending on season. The Forum is open from 8.30am – 4.30pm during winter months, and 8.30am – 7.15pm during summer months.

Price: €12 per adult / €7.50 for European Union citizens aged 18-24 years / Free for European Union citizens aged under 18 and over 65 years (please take a passport as proof of ID). The ticket includes entrance to the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. 

*Prices and opening hours may be subject to change.
