Tickets Overview

  • Unmatched views of Rome, the Colosseum, and Vittoriano from the top of Palatine Hill

  • See the birthplace of Roman emperors, including Augustus and his wife, Livia

  • Witness the very spot where Caligula was assassinated

  • Visit the ruins of Roman palaces, built by emperors over centuries

  • Close proximity to the Roman Forum, Circo Massimo, and Colosseum

  • Perfect for a picnic lunch between sightseeing

No matter the time of year (or time of day), there are going to be crowds and queues all over the Roman ruins, including Palatine Hill.

There are so many ways to book Palatine Hill tickets in advance, whether you want a private tour, a self-guided tour, or simply just want to skip the line.

Palatine Hill tickets include:

  • Last-minute entrance if you are unsure of what you can squeeze into a day of sightseeing

  • Combined tickets for other nearby sites, including the Colosseum and Roman Forum

  • Night tours are available to beat the heat (especially in the peak of the summer season)

  • This is an open-air venue; find a shady spot for a quick bite to eat between sites

  • Bring a refillable water bottle – there are water fountains all over the city, including the Roman ruins sites (and it's free!)

  • In the heat of summer, book the earliest tour possible – or check out a night tour instead

  • Palatine Hill is within walking distance of Rome's city center, but you can get there by metro (Colosseo - Line B), or bus (75 or 87)

  • Budget at least one hour to visit Palatine Hill and three hours if you plan on visiting the nearby Colosseum and Roman Forum on the same day

  • For an incredible view of Rome, head to Palatine Hill at sunset, all year round

  • Palatine Hill may be difficult to navigate for people with limited mobility; however, the Pantheon and the Colosseum offer better accessibility if you still want a taste of ancient Rome

About: Palatine Hill

Of Rome's seven hills, the Palatine is the one that's right in the heart of the ancient city. It overlooks the Roman Forum on one side and the Circus Maximus on the other. Some of the finest ancient homes were located here, including the emperor's – 'Palatine' is actually where the modern word 'palace' comes from!
