Next in the guided tour of the Colosseum underground you will take a trip to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill to experience how the patricians saw things. The Palatine Hill looked over the Roman Forum, and it was no accident that the elite ruling class of Rome resided there, eventually becoming home to the Emperors, who built such large residences that the word “palace” takes its name from the hill. Another reason for the importance of this hill was its legendary connection with the birth of Rome. A visit to the Palatine Hill is a must if you want to understand how the Romans felt about their city.
