Afterwards, the Roman Forum, rising in the valley between Palatino and Campidoglio, which was the city political and religious center during the Empire. Here, it is still possible to visit the Senate of Ancient Rome, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, the tomb of Julius Caesar, and the Nerva Forum. The Palatine Hill is another marvelous hill of Rome, one of the seven hills where, according to legend, the city was founded. It was the seat chosen by all emperors as their residence; nowadays, it is one of the most evocative places to visit during a tour in Rome.

Piazza di Spagna is one of the symbolic centers of Rome with the Barcaccia, the Spanish Steps, the Colonna dell’Immacolata Concezione.
