    The Palatine is one of the oldest areas of Rome where today are the ruins of the temples and palaces of the Roman emperors who lived there. Although today only some parts of the old structures remain, through them we can appreciate and imagine the lifestyle they had at that time. One of the best preserved structures on the Palatine Hill is the imperial house also known as the House of Augustus.

    The Palatine Hill (Palatino) is the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 50 metres above the Roman Forum, looking down upon it on one side, and upon the Circus Maximus on the other. It is the etymological origin of the word palace and its cognates in other languages (Italian palazzo, French palais, German Palast, etc.).

    Seven Hills of Rome List:
    - Aventino/Aventine
    - Celio/Caelian
    - Capitolino/Capitoline
    - Esquilino/Esquiline
    - Palatino/Palatino
    - Quirinale/Quirinal
    - Viminale/Viminal

    Note that Monte Mario (the "highest" peak in Rome with 139 mt) and Gianicolo (second "highest" hill with 88 mt) are not part of the Seven Hills!

    Great terrain with beautiful ruins to explore at your own pace. A rose garden was also laid out here. Very nice view of the Roman Forum and the whole city of Rome!
