A great place to start your walk around these legendary attractions is Colle Oppio. Here you can enjoy the exterior panorama of the Colosseum, the ultimate Rome attraction. Then descend into the Colosseum itself to enter Rome's gory past. Your guidebook can provide fascinating insights into the gladiator fights, mock sea-battles and executions that took place here.
After the Colosseum, head for Palatine Hill - the most famous of the seven hills of Rome. From here, Rome sightseeing can't be bettered. The views of the Roman Forum and Nero's Circus Maximus will conjure images of the chariot races in ancient times. Next you can walk along the Via Sacra, which leads to some of Rome's most enchanting ruins, including the legendary Temple of Julius Caesar and the House of the Vestal Virgins.
Bear in mind that you can see all of ancient Rome in half a day in the skip-the-line tour. It covers the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. It's the best way of beating the queues. Other nearby attractions include the Basilica San Giovanni and the Trevi fountain.
