The fountain features four figures, each representing a river from a different continent - the Nile, Ganges, Danube and Rio de la Plata.

Stop At: Palatine hill, Rome, Lazio

Rome's Origins
Palatine hill is the centermost of the famous seven hills of Rome. Located in between such attractions as the Circus maximus, the Colosseum, and the Roman forum, evidence from the archaeological digs demonstrates that the hill was inhabited as long ago as the tenth century BC.
The Hill has a strong link to Roman mythology. It ts believed that on Palatine hill, the twins Romulus and Remus were found in the Lupercal Cave by their four-legged sheered 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.

Forum Romanum
Until 509 BC, when Rome became republic, the city was reigned by an Etruscan dynasty of a Tarquin Kings. They built a sewer, the 'Cloaca Maxima', to drain water from the marshlands of the valley between the Palatine, Capitoline and Esquiline hills to the Tiber river.
Today, the Forum known as the Forum Romanum can look like a disorderly collection of ruins to the uninitiated, but with some imagination you can see the Roman Empire come back to life at this site. Remains of many buildings from different periods are visible; the forum was littered with temples, basilicas and triumphal arches.

    If you have one day and want to take it all in, this tour is for you. Our guide was informative and helpful and recommended a great place for lunch.

    Our driver (I forgot his name) was on time for pick up and was very accommodating. He was amazing in his navigation of the very difficult streets of Rome, and got us everywhere we asked to be with no issues, and on time. He also suggested a great place to eat for my family and we were impressed with the high quality and low prices of his recommendation. He got us back to our Cruise Ship with plenty of time to spare. We would certainly want to use him again the next time we are in Rome.
