"Palatine Hill" Palatine Hill Tip by rcsparty

Palatine Hill, Rome: 76 reviews and 148 photos

 
 

Palatine Hill was the site of the earliest latin settlement in Rome. It became the residence of Rome's ruling class and was the birthplace of Augustus. The homes of Augustus and his wife are still well perserved. It is worth the climb to Palatine just to see the gardens, which are beautiful.
