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.
