Palatine Hill
The Palatine Hill is a lush peak strategically positioned to overlook the Tiber River. It is believed to be the cradle of Rome – a place where the first Romans lived, and later on, it became the location for numerous opulent buildings where the aristocrats and the monarchs lived. Palatine Hill was known to be the commercial, political as well as the religious center of ancient Rome and is the most popular among the Seven Hills of Rome. The city from atop this hill gets a view of the age-old Forum Romano, from a height of almost 130 ft. So, enjoy and admire the scenic views of the Forum and Nero’s Circus Maximus from the hill. You can access different sites only on foot as the path is a bit bumpy with stones from the ancient Rome period.

Roman Forum
Forum Romano dates back to 7th century BC when it was first developed to be a marketplace. The place used to be a marshland once but has been gradually drained to convert it into a hub of the city’s economic and political activities. Today, it still presents an amazingly well-preserved picture of its originality and has become the social, political as well as commercial heart of the empire. On one of the paths, you can encounter basilicas, remnants of temples, and government buildings. Marvel at the eight columns of the Temple of Saturn and the magnificent Arch of Septimius Severus made out of white marble. Also, visit the Curia Julia to see where the Senate used to conduct affairs of the state.
