Visiting the heart of Ancient Rome: Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

Visiting the heart of Rome reminds visitors of how truly ancient the city is. The history behind each monument and the availability to such spectacles gives all visitors a unique look at life in Ancient Rome. Ruins like the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum give the most well-rounded view of all and promise to quite literally take you back in time.

Visiting Colosseum

The Colosseum is an iconic symbol of Rome and thus is a must see when in the Eternal City. This stadium was active for four centuries of gladiatorial combats, wild animal fights, land and sea battle re-enactments, executions and dramas. Although the Colosseum was abandoned in 6th century A.D. and suffered damages from weather and vandalism, it has now become an essential landmark of the city’s history. While nearly two-thirds of the structure has been destroyed, restorative efforts have given visitors a view of what it would have been like to actually live in Ancient Rome and the experience is quite surreal.

Visiting Palatine Hill

The Colosseum is an iconic symbol of Rome and thus is a must see when in the Eternal City. This stadium was active for four centuries of gladiatorial combats, wild animal fights, land and sea battle re-enactments, executions and dramas. Although the Colosseum was abandoned in 6th century A.D. and suffered damages from weather and vandalism, it has now become an essential landmark of the city’s history. While nearly two-thirds of the structure has been destroyed, restorative efforts have given visitors a view of what it would have been like to actually live in Ancient Rome and the experience is quite surreal.

Visit the Roman Forum

Although the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill will help you understand what Ancient Rome was like, the Roman Forum is vital for the full Roman experience. At the forum, you can see the ruins of ancient government buildings, the gateway to hell (also known as the Lacus Curtius), the sacred fountain Spring of Juturna as well as the location of Romulus’s, Julius Caesar’s and Cicero’s deaths. For those that lived in the Roman Forum in 5th Century BC, this area was common place and must not be missed by those wanting to live la vita romana.
