The Palatine Hill is the home of the palaces of the  Roman Emperors. It stand above the Forum and the Circus Maximus. It gave the Emperors a birds eye view of all that was happening around them. Emily and I have been here a couple of times on our visits. The Palatine has a small museum and great views of Rome.
