In the distance you can see the Colosseum, to the rear right is Palatine Hill where the Roman senate and forum would sit.
“Palatine Hill is the centermost of the famous 7 hills of Rome. Located in between such attractions as the Circus Maximus, the Colosseum, and the Roman Forum, evidence from archaeological digs demonstrates that the hill was inhabited as long ago as the 10th century BC.
The hill has a strong link to Roman mythology. It is believed that on Palatine Hill, the twins Romulus and Remus were found in the Lupercal Cave by their four-legged shepherd mother, who raised them. Ultimately, this is where Romulus decided to build the city.
Therefore, it was on this hill that the Roman Empire began."
