Description

The Palatine is a large archeological area located between Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. It contains the old Emperor residences, arches, temples and thermae. The legend says that Rome had its origins on this hill and, indeed, recent excavations have shown that people were living in the Palatine since 1000 BC. According to Roman tradition, the Palatine was the place where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf that nursed them keeping them alive in the "Cave of the Lupercale", probably found in recent excavations: for this reason on this hill was celebrated every year the festival of Lupercalia. The area was reopened to the public some years ago and now It can be visited entirely on foot.
