I loved this area so much because everything is in one place so you can really see a lot very quickly. We used a bus to get to Piazza Venezia and started from there, walked along the Roman Forum and finally walked over to the Colosseum. You can see all these sights during one afternoon, but I suggest you spend an entire day exploring this area. Start your day with a breakfast, and then head over here with the metro or a bus and enjoy some sightseeing, take some photos, have lunch nearby and explore some more. We did not have time to explore the surrounding areas here because of our tight schedule.
