  • This Domus Tiberiana, one of the best-held and maintained ruins of the area, is mastodontic to say the least. It should be seen up close to understand its size or by photographing it from the area in front. Roman history the ultimate! Great.

  • The Domus Tiberiana was the first imperial palace to be built on the slopes of the Palatine hill that then joins the Roman Forum to that of Palatine. It constitutes a monumental fifth scenic to the landscape of the ruins of the Roman Forum and can also be admired on the ascent to the sixteenth-century Farnesian gardens. Impossible not to see it and not be fascinated! @gargio76

  • Worth walking under the sun.
  • Historical places of Rome cannot deserve less than 5 stars.

  • Tiberian Palace () was the first true Imperial palace in the Palatine, built by the emperor Tiberius on the western side of the Palatine Hill, occupying a vast area between the temple of Magna Mater and the foothills of the Roman Forum. In the 16TH century, on it was created the Farnésio Garden, which still today was only excavated in the marginal areas of the perimeter, while the central nucleus remains fundamentally unexplored. Perhaps Tiberius chose the place where his home was, which was located on the south side of the hill. The early stage of the palace was probably limited to the central portion of the modern garden; Caligula enlarged it to the forum and Domitian restored the entire complex. In the course of this work, a monumental entrance was created for the forum, where it was also to be the Praetoran guard and where today is Santa Maria Antiqua. From the central part, it is known only a large peristyle surrounded by rooms and from which it departed a corridor that ended probably near the environments already excavated in the vicinity of the temple of Magna Mater; Other corridors were to be followed in the Cryptopórtico of the Neronian Transitional Palace (Domus Transitoria), where some passages are still visible. The south side, facing the temple and the old house of Lívia, was excavated in depth and revealed a row of eighteen rectangular rooms covered by crib vaulted. The eighth, on the right, conserves a fragment of the ceiling painted with squares framing figurative scenes (a female figure, a Panther and birds), dating from the THIRD century A.D., while the lateral walls are from the time of Neronian reconstruction after the Great Fire of 64. Always on the same side, at the South Angle, is an oval tank, probably a fish nursery. The eastern side is marked by the long cryptoportic attributed to the Neronian era. There are windows on one side and remnants of paint and floor mosaics. A fragment of plaster of the ceiling is decorated in coffins, plant elements and a panel with four Erotes (in the Palatine antitrust today). From there you will reach the Augustano Palace. The north side is facing the forum and the best known, laid out along a small alley known as Clivus victoriae. Some environments, oriented on the northeast-southwest axis are very old (from the domicile period) and, above them, supported other structures of the time of Adriano, oriented on a north-south axis that opened to the ancient route with arches. In these environments were discovered graphites with lists of accounts and names of coins, which led the researchers to imagine being a kind of imperial IRS. Afterwards, these structures were used as stores in a market. The sources report that the Tiberian Palace comprised at least one library, the headquarters of the old Imperial Archive, which succumbed to a fire at the beginning of 192 A.D., in the time of commode [1] [2]. [3].
