The Palatine is one of the seven hills of Rome and has always been for the Romans the “sacred” place that had given birth to the city.

On that hill, isolated from the others and in a dominant position on the Tiber, the ancients had placed the legendary “foundation” of Rome and the “square furrow” traced by Romulus on April 21st of the year 753 BC.

In 44 BC, Emperor Augustus decided to move his residence there. Since then, almost all the emperors went to live on the Palatine transforming it into a single sumptuous royal residence.

The first real imperial palace was built by the successor of Augustus, Tiberius, and enlarged by Caligula, which extended it to face the Roman Forum.
