Seven hills of Rome

Redirected from Roman hills

The Seven Hills of Rome, where the original city of Rome developed, are specifically the Palatine, Aventine, Capitoline or Capitolium, Quirinal, Viminal[?], Esquiline[?] and Caelian[?] hills.

They are now very different: five of them (in Italian) (Aventino, Celio[?], Esquilino[?], Quirinale, Viminale[?]) are populated areas with monuments, buildings and parks; the Campidoglio (Capitol Hill) now hosts the Municipality of Rome; the Palatino is an archaeological area.
