Our tips for Roman Forum

  • Starting point. To make the most out of your Roman forum tours start at Palatine Hill and work your way down, finishing with the Colosseum. That way you will experience the full scale of this site and not miss any of its key features.
  • Think ahead. Lines for the Colosseum can be long, a pre-bought ticket will solve that issue. Still unsure? Find out why you should in our Guidebook article.
  • Choose the right footwear. The cobbled stones can get slippery, and you’ll be doing plenty of walking, so it’s best to leave the sandals and put on those trainers.
