Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, & the Colosseum

Walk the ancient path that Romans once used every day as you venture into the Roman Forum along the Via Sacra. Neighboring the Colosseum, the Roman Forum provides an insight into life in Ancient Rome unlike any other site in Rome. Visit the temple of Vesta, Antonino, and Faustina. Marvel at the Basilica Julia and Aemilia, and imagine what Rome was once like thousands of years ago.

Next, make your way to the Palatine Hill and enjoy one of the city’s best vantage points. Discover the hill where Rome was originally founded. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on as an extensive archaeological site. Explore ruins of the Flavian Palace and Stadium of Domitian, as well as the legendary Hut of Romulus.

Finally, head to the dominating Colosseum. Skip the long ticketing line and make your way directly through security and into the world’s largest amphitheater.
