for chariot races during the time of the Roman Empire. The Palatine
Hill, centremost of all the Seven Hills of Rome,
stands between the Circo Massimo and Roman
Forum. According to Roman mythology Romulus and Remus were
found on the Palatine Hill by the wolf that looked
after them. A shepherd then raised the children and Romulus went
on to found Rome. The origins of Rome do lie on the Palatine,
where recent excavations show that people have lived there since
1000 BC. The Roman Forum was the political, judicial
and commercial heart or the Roman Empire. The area is packed with
ancient monuments, temples and Roman arches.
