  • Rectangular in shape with the southern side curved, it was built during the domitian empire and later restored by the emperors Adriano and Severo Settimius. Even today, among other things, the hemicycle-shaped grandstand and the bases of the pillars that supported the upper floor are clearly visible. The remarkable size, of 160x48 meters, contributes to make the visual impact very beautiful.

  • Was it a garden? Was it a stadium? Was it both? There may never be a conclusive answer, but the preservation of this site is impressive in any case.  more »
  • You can paraphrase Pushkin! A delightful attraction in Rome! I walked on it long enough, beautiful views from the lookout, especially to the Great Circus and the Roman Forum. You need to devote a whole day to get around all the main ancient exhibits of the capital of Italy!

  • This was perhaps my favorite site in the whole ancient complex. One their just weren’t as many people, this place is tucked away on top of the hill. And the autumn colors were beautiful and cool. We just had a great time strolling across this part of the site.
  • The Palatino was ancient Rome’s most exclusive neighbourhood. The emperor Augustus lived here all his life and successive emperors built increasingly opulent palaces. But after Rome’s fall, it fell into disrepair, and in the Middle Ages churches and castles were built over the ruins. Later, wealthy Renaissance families had landscaped gardens laid out on the site. Most of the Palatino as it appears today is covered by the ruins of the emperor Domitian’s 1st-century complex, which served as the main imperial palace for 300 years.
  • A nice break from the heat high above Rome in the cover of several trees, huge expanse of ruins overlooking circus maximus. Great view point across the forum ruins, all part of the entry ticket for the coliseum.
  • I did not expect to find a hippodrome on the Palatine hill. A new about the Circus Maximus down the hill, but was not aware of this feature in the Domus Flavia. Nevertheless, it is preserved in a very good condition and there is a nice lookout on the side of the Palatine hill (see the attached pictures). As I later learned, the Stadium was built by Domitian in the end of 1st century AD (along with the Odeon and the Domus Flavia itself). And in fact, this was neither a stadium, nor a hippodrome, but a sunken garden ... Visited April 2017
  • Beautiful part of the palatine hill/Roman forum. Try to read about it or take some books with you before heading to the area.
