In the second part of the tour, visit the nearby area of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. This tour will last about 45 minutes after which you can stay within the area and explore it further for as long as you wish. Here you will get a portrait of what everyday life in ancient Rome was like, since the Roman Forum was the economical, political, juridicial and social center of the city. Apart from the beauty of the ruins and of the park itself, from here you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus and take the best pictures of them.
