Palatine Hill, Rome

The inside of Palatine Hill site is like a lost world, such a contrast when compared with the busy modern world of Rome just outside the walls. A vast area, there is no end to discovering interesting nooks and corners provided you are interested in ruins. It is scattered with skeletal remains of once glorious ancient Roman era.

To make the tour ‘a memorable experience’ imagine you are one of those Roman citizens who existed centuries back. Robe yourself in those colorful clothes; imagine the emperors walking past you and you and your friends waving at them… The whole area has such a wonderful old world charm that the dreamer in you will resurface again and again visualizing various scenes.

While some of the walls still had parts of those decorations, some of the arches seemed to lead to darkness as if luring you to find more secrets. The remains of a stadium, of banquet halls, of fountains speak of lot of history, all you need is time and patience to hear all of it, rather see them.
