Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Wow, I've managed to work on a morning slot, today!

Yesterday, I posted the view towards Palatine Hill from the Colosseum. Today, that is reversed, this is a view of the Colosseum from Palatine Hill.

This was taken a few hours later than my previous shot and you can see the crowds of people, all eager to learn about the Colosseum on this warm, sunny day.

Surprisingly, our tour of Palatine Hill was very leisurely. The crowds didn't seem to make the connection between the two sites. You can see from my photograph that the ruined walls are uninterrupted by tourists. There were only small groups touring. Most of the groups went around to the forum and did not climb up to the fine viewpoints on the hill.

The Palatine is the most famous of Rome's seven hills. In Ancient Rome it was considered one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the city, and was the home of aristocrats and emperors. It was also believed to be the location of the Lupercal (the cave where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf).- Wikipedia

From this viewpoint, it was possible obtain fine views of the Colosseum, Constantine's Arch and long views over the ancient Forum of Rome.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
