Colosseum Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. According to ancient tradition, it was on the Palatine hill that the first settlement of Rome was made by Romulus in the mid eighth century B.C. Excavations have revealed huts and tombs from the Iron Age and, recently, an ancient fortification. The Palatine was also the place of important cults as, for example, that of Magna Mater (Cybeles). Between the second and first centuries B.C. it became a residential quarter for the Roman aristocracy. The House of Griffins, famous for its frescoes, was built in this period. The Emperor Augustus made the Palatine his official power-center and initiated a building program which saw the construction of imperial palaces, and the restructuring and enlargement of various existing buildings.
The Roman Forum was the monumental main square of ancient Rome. Around the center, reached by the Via Sacra, were the most important public and religious buildings in the city. Currently you can visit the remains of the Forum with the ruins of the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina, the Emilian Basilica, the Curia, the Temple of Vesta, the Altar of Cesar, the Arch of Titus, the Arch of Septimius Severus and more.

Galleria Borghese, also known in English as Borghese Gallery, is housed in the Villa Borghese, a beautiful and elegant mansion. It is one of the most renowned art museums in the world. The building’s gardens are also a popular attraction and the third largest park in Rome.
The gallery features an important part of the collection begun by Cardinal Scipione Borghese (nephew of Pope Paul V), between 1576 and 1633.
As well as an avid art collector of Caravaggio’s works, the Cardinal was Bernini’s first sponsor. Thus, the museum counts with an extensive collection of both artists.
The exhibitions are found on the mansion’s bottom and top floor. The first floor houses works of art by renowned artists such as Tiziano, Raphael, Caravaggio, Rubens and Botticelli. The ground floor is dedicated to classic antiquities from the first to the third centuries AD. This part of the museum is the most surprising with fascinating mosaics and impressive sculptures, as well as impeccably preserved frescoes that decorate the mansion’s walls and ceilings.
