Exploring Palatine Hill

I took this photo in Rome, Italy.

Palatine Hill is an interesting site to visit. You enter in through a natural park area with lush trees and beautiful foliage. As you walk further in you start to see the ancient ruins. It’s amazing that these buildings were built so long ago and many of them are still standing.

I recommend taking a tour of Palatine Hill with a local guide. It really helps to know what you’re looking at and learn about the mythology and history behind the structures.  A good tour guide is almost like a story teller. They add context to what you’re seeing while still bringing the history to life.
