The Palatine

In the Aeneid, Virgil tells of the amazing adventure of the Greeks who, having immigrated from Arcadia under the guidance of the Minor Deity Evander and his son Pallas, are lead to settle on one of the seven hills of Rome, the Palatine. According to Roman mythology, the Palatine was the birth-place of Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers suckled and raised by the she-wolf who were  to become the founders of Rome.
Shrouded in legend and steeped in history, the Palatine Hill is a place of enchantment. Evoking images of the ancient abodes of imperial rulers and the subsequent Farnese gardens, this spelling-binding cradle of civilization today is an open-air museum. The vestiges of the past are immersed in luxuriant vegetation unfolding over the hill’s slopes from where an all-embracing panorama of the archaeological remains below may be fully enjoyed.
