The Palatine Hills was once the home of emperors and the site of temples. it is surprisingly peaceful, & a good place to escape the crowds and to be away from the city confined spaces, it has beauty, nature and probably because of its own climatic richness the royals have chosen this place to develop for the brighter future prospects. Rome has its origins on the Palatine. It is an archaeological site open to the public. In the Middle Ages various churches and convents were built on the hill, and in the Renaissance the Farnese family used part of the Palatine for their private botanical gardens. After the Renaissance, the Palatine remained largely untouched, until it was opened to the public.

Palatine Hill and the museum: We visited the Palatine Hill and the Museum. It is said that the Roman civilization had started at the Palentine Hill. Thus this place houses important historical sites like Domus Livia, Domus Augustana, and Stadium of Domitian

A tip: If you haven’t bought tickets in advance to Colosseum, buy a combination ticket for the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum at the nearby entrance to the Palatine Hill. It’s not too crowded over there.

Highly regarded and revered in the legends of Rome’s history and mythology, Palatine Hill is the center most of the seven hills on which Rome was built. Legends speak boastfully about the founding of Rome through the story of Romulus and Remus. Even famous senators such as Augustus Caesar are said to have lived on this hill, deriving the word “palace” from Palatine. The Domitian’s imperial palace constitutes most of the land on the hill, alongside a museum that houses many precious artifacts from Rome’s glorious ancient past.

The Palatine Hill is very closely knit with the history and mythology of Rome. Rome was built on seven hills, the center most of which is the Palatine Hill. According to mythology, this hill was where the makers of Rome, Romulus and Remus were found by the She-wolf who raised them. Many famous senators of Rome lived on this hill (including the great Augustus Caesar) and thus the word "palace" originates from Palatine. Archaeological data have also proven that the early Romans inhabited this place, giving Palatine hill a strong historical reference. Today, most of this place is covered with Domitian's Imperial Palace that was used for around 300 years. Amongst the buildings is also a museum that houses some of the precious archaeological artifacts from Rome's history.
