The tour then takes you to the Roman Forum and Emperors’ Palace. Today we have The White House in the USA and Buckingham Palace in the UK; in Roman times the Emperors’ Palace was the main residence of Rome’s rulers. The Emperors’ could look down from their residence atop the Palatine hill and have a wonderful view of Rome. Come and marvel at that same breathtaking vista as well as seeing the remains of some of the palace’s beautiful mosaics and frescoes.
The Roman Forum was the main piazza and meeting place for Rome’s citizens.
