The cradle of rome

This is surely the most famous hill in Rome and where the city's first inhabitants settled more than a thousand years before Christ. In fact, it's known as the birthplace of Rome. According to legend, in 750 BC, Romulus and Remus founded the "Roma Quadrata." Legend also states that it was in the Palatine Cave where the she-wolf, Lupercal, famously suckled the twin founders of Rome.

Today, you can see countless remains of imposing buildings built during ancient times. Although the whole complex is impressive, these are some of the places that deserve special attention:

- Flavian Palace: The Domus Flavia is splendid palace was built in the year 81BC by the emperor Domitian as an official and public residence. Today, you can still see some parts of the extensive palace.

- Villa of Livia: This modest-looking house was built in the 1st century BC and is one of the best-preserved buildings on Palatine Hill. You can still see traces of the mosaics and frescoes that once livened the ceilings and walls.

- House of Augustus: Built as the private residence of Caesar Augustus, the two-storey home still retains much of its gorgeous and colorful frescoes.

- Farnese Gardens: These were built in the 16th century on the ruins of the Palace of Tiberius and were one of Europe's first botanical gardens.

- Hippodrome of Domitian: This features the same structure as a Roman circus, but it isn't known whether stadium was actually designed for sport or simply as a garden.

- The Palatine Museum: This small museum shows different artifacts discovered on Palatine Hill. It contains sculptures, frescoes, mosaics and other objects from the heyday of ancient Rome.

Open-air museum

On Palatine Hill in Rome, the palace of Severus is connected to the Hippodrome of Domitian.
This is a structure that looks like a Roman Circus and bears the Greek name for arean, but appears to be too small for chariot races.

You could describe it better as a Greek-style arena built for foot races. That's my guess at least...its real function is still a source of debate. One thing for sure is that they used it for sports events in the times of Severus, but it was probably originally built as a garden. According to the guide from the Sopraintendenza Archeologica di Roma, the majority of the statues from the Palatine Museum come from the Hippodrome.

One of my favorite places in rome

Palatine Hill is a complex of beautiful ruins and homes in very different states of conservation. In fact, it's hard to make out the identity of some of them. If you go in a purely ruin-seeing mindset, the forum, hill, and museum together can get a bit heavy-going. I’d suggest taking a break and just enjoying the charm of the place. Personally, I enjoyed it more when I put aside the audio guide and followed my intuition to the places that seemed most evocative. It's a painter and photographer's paradise. The layout of the ruins has an indescribable vibe what can only be sensed and not described by data, dates, and artistic styles. It's one of my favorite places in Rome and I'd love to go back.

The palatine

To conclude, the place is very large, but I did not find as impressive as the forum. The Farnese gardens are really beautiful to see and very ideal to rest a moment, a little greenery among the ruins. The views are also breathtaking, especially in the city, you can see several major monuments such as St. Peter's Basilica. It also allows you to see the purely Italian houses with their large imposing terraces. The museum is also inevitable, many statues found on the Palatine and sculptures, a very nice place, especially when the sun shines, the museum is free. Some places are not currently visible and restorations.

Le mont palatin

Pour conclure, l’endroit est très vaste mais, je ne l’ai pas trouvé aussi impressionnant que le forum.

Les jardins Farnèses sont vraiment très jolies à voir et très idéal pour se reposer un moment, un peu de verdure parmi ces ruines. Les vues sont aussi imprenables, surtout sur la ville, on peut apercevoir divers monuments important comme la basilique Saint-Pierre. Elle permet également de voir les habitations purement italienne avec leurs grandes terrasses imposantes.

Le musée est également inévitable, beaucoup de statues retrouvées sur le Palatin ainsi que de sculptures, un endroit très agréable, surtout quand le soleil tape, l’intérieur du musée est frais.

Certains endroits sont actuellement pas visible et en restaurations.

Birth of rome

According to legend, it was on this hill that Rome was founded by Romulus in 753 BC. According to historians, there are many traces of life from the eighth century BC. It is very nice to visit the Palatine after the Colosseum, one remains in the ancient but quieter atmosphere. Surrounded by busy roads, the Palatine is a haven of peace. Sitting in the garden admiring the ruins is fascinating. The view of Rome is beautiful and lush vegetation, this is really a good time. Pieces of walls that formed villas, an old stadium, ruins of baths, many monuments have disappeared almost completely, but you need a little imagination and project in ancient Rome to understand that the Palatine was a high Imperial place. Others, including the Domus Flavia example are still upright and the Museum of the Palatine it reveals desobjets from excavations on the Palatine. A time of discovery and break on the Palatine Hill, the visit!

Naissance de rome

Selon la légende, c'est sur cette colline que Rome fut fondée par Romulus en 753 av JC.
Selon les historiens, il existe bien trace de vie dès le VIIIème siècle av JC.

C'est très agréable de venir visiter le Palatin après le Colisée, on reste dans l'ambiance antique mais plus calme. Encerclé par des routes à forte circulation, le Palatin est un havre de paix. Se reposer dans les jardins en admirant les ruines est fascinant. La vue sur Rome est splendide et la végétation luxuriante, c'est vraiment un agréable moment.

Des morceaux de murs qui formaient des villas, un ancien stade, des ruines de thermes, beaucoup de monuments ont disparus presque en totalité mais il faut avoir un peu d'imagination et se projeter dans la Rome antique pour comprendre que le Palatin était un haut lieu impérial.
D'autres, dont la Domus Flavia par exemple sont encore débout et le Musée du Palatin lui dévoile desobjets issus des fouilles sur le Palatin.

Un temps de découverte et de pause sur le Mont Palatin, la visite s'impose!

Par la suite, c'est devenu un quartier résidentiel où habitèrent les Empereurs de Rome tels qu'Auguste, Tibère, Domitien. La promenade du Palatin est saisissante.

Entrance to the museum is included in the Palatine visiting this site and the Coliseum also when you take a general ticket. The museum is open access. Rather small but gathering a lot of antiques, statues of Roman objects from the era and other relics of the past, it is interesting to make a turn, and of course when it's hot, it can be a break.

L'entrée au musée du Palatin est comprise dans la visite de tout le site et du Colisée également quand vous prenez un billet général. Le musée est donc en libre accès. Plutôt petit mais rassemblant beaucoup d'objets anciens, des statues de romains, des objets de l'époque et autres vestiges du passé, c'est intéressant d'y faire un tour, et bien sûr quand il fait chaud, cela permet de faire une pause.
