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.
