Peaceful green hills and ruins about as untouched as you'll get in the Caput Mundi. The Palatino is wonderful for strolling, contemplating the origins of Roman culture, and taking in the views from this particular hill out of Rome's famous seven.

A lovely place to rest with views of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill is one of Rome's famous hills. The walk is lovely and the place is historic. It's worth a visit if you're already visiting the Foro Romano, but the view isn't anything compared to Gianicolo in Trastevere.

The Palatine, overlooking the forum, was the home of the Imperial Palace and the seat of government power for centuries. Guided tours can point out the significance of each courtyard and ruin. It's also probably the best place to get a good vantage point on the ancient city.

Palatine Hill is one of the seven hills in Rome and probably the most famous. This is where the rich and famous ancient Romans used to live. Emperor Augustus was born on Palatine Hill and lived there all his life. Cicero- the great orator lived there as well as Marcus Antonius (Marc Antony). Later emperors Tiberius, Caligula and Domitian built palaces there. Most of the ruins that we see today are from the Domitian’s palace. The Palatine Hill can be reached by walking up from the Roman Forum. It is shaded by trees and the Farnese Gardens are a beautiful sight. According to the legend of the building of Rome, Romulus and Remus were brought here in a cave by a wolf. This is why Romulus decided to build a city there – on Palatine Hill.
Domus Flavia and Domus Augustana (the two wings of the Domitian’s palace) are among the best preserved ruins on Palatine Hill. Domitian’s palace was built in AD 81. The Domus Flavia was the official wing and the Domus Augustana was the private residence. This palace was official Imperial palace for 300 years. The Palace of Septimius Severus was an extension of the Domus Augustana. The House of Livia dates from the 1st century BC and is where Emperor Augustus and his wife Livia lived. It is also one of the best preserved houses on the Palatine with frescoes.

Palatine Hill overlooks a series of remnants of ancient monuments and buildings. It can be a bit of a walk, especially on a long, hot summer day, but it's worth it if you're an ancient history buff. In addition, it stands above the Roman Forum, so you get a great view of the Forum.

Definitely plays second fiddle to other sights in Rome. Could easily be accused of being just a pile of rocks. Interesting enough but requires imagination.
The Roma Pass is highly recommended if you don't want to wait in line.
