    Palantine Hill is quite beautiful, parts of it have been restored, and have lovely plants growing about. The other parts look like your typical ruins. What I found really cool about the whole thing was the underground passageways. My friends and I managed to get lost in them, and barely got out in time to meet the rest of our group!

    This is a view back from Palantine hill.
    The large white building towering in the background is the modern monument to Vittorio Emanuelle II. In front of it would have been the Tabularium (government offices).

    This stadium is located on Palatine Hill and was used for athletic events and for horse races. You can see a viewing stand for the emperor on one end of the stadium.

    A very big foot.

    While you're on the Palatine Hill, see if you can find this marble foot. It's enormous ......imagine how big the original Roman statue must have been!

    Stadium

    by Julius_Caesar Written May 4, 2005

    It is not clear whether this structure was a public stadium, a private track for exercising horses, or simply a large garden.

    Septimius Severus’s palace

    by Julius_Caesar Written May 4, 2005

    The Palace of Septimius Severus, who reigned from A.D. 193 to 211, was an extension to the Domus Augustana. It projected beyond the hillside, requiring enormous arched supports.

    Rome first became a city on the Palatine Hill on 753 B.C. On the Palatine hill, you will find mostly ruins of palaces and homes of the rich.

    Palantine view

    Make sure you see the view over Rome from the top of the hill. There is a good view overlooking Circus Maximus - where they used to practice the chariot racing.

    The old seating square

    Just a note for daily planning, try to see the Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum on the same day, they are all really close to each other.
