Roman hills

Palatine hill

The Palatine hill (Via di San Gregorio) is the ancient residence of Roman emperors and aristocracy that used to serve as a center of Rome during the ages of kings. Augustus was barely made emperor when he established his residence here. Tiberius, Caligula, the Flavians, and Septimius Severus followed suit, and Nero was the only ruler who wished to live in a different place. Here, the Flavian palace is easily identifiable by colourful marble work, and the house of Libya distinguishes itself by many wall-paintings.

Capitoline museums

In 1471 Pope Sixtus IV started a collection of antique statues, which he would soon donate to the Capitoline Museums. The Capitoline Museums (Piazza del Campidoglio) house artwork and sculpture collections in two palaces – Palazzo Nuovo and Palazzo dei Conservatori. Both were designed by Michelangelo and located at the very centre of ancient Rome. The great master had also planned the Piazza Capitolina and the Cordonata Capitolina – a flight of steps of sorts leading to the piazza - both were finished prior to Charles V's visit to Rome in 1536. The center of the piazza is occupied by the bronze statue of Marcus Aurelius, the only ancient equestrian that survived to this day. Today, the original is housed in Palazzo Nuovo. From the top of the Capitoline hill one can admire gorgeous views of the Roman Forum and Via Sacra (Sacred Road), which religious and festive processions took to the Capitoline hill.
