Palatine Hill, Rome, Italy
Via S. Gregorio 30, Rome, Italy| Map |
The beginning of Rome started as a tiny village located on Palatine Hill. Eventually the village gave way to the palaces of wealthy families and emperors and became the prime real estate of Ancient Rome. In current times the Hill is covered in trees and gardens with only fragments of the palaces remaining. Palatine Hill is ideal for relaxing after a day of exploring the Roman Forum. Relax in one of the grassy slopes between the ancient palaces and take in the sights of Augustus Caesar’s birthplace and the homes of Cicero and Nero.
