The Seven Hills Found in Rome


The city of Rome is hilly. In fact, it is made up of seven hills: Aventinus, Caelius, Capitolium, Esquiliae, Palatium, Quirinalis and Virminalis. These hills were formerly named as the following respectively: Aventine Caelian;, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal, and Viminal.

When you go to Rome, you would see that among the seven hills, only the Capitoline remains distinct in the place. The rest of the hills were once noticeable; even Capitoline is not as distinct as before. Originally, the Quirinal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Viminal hills served as peninsulas of an early volcanic ridge. Meanwhile, the Palatine, Capitoline, and Aventine hills were hills parted from the others; but they were not part of the same early volcanic ridge. Before, it is said that there were marshy ravines located in between the entire hills including the Tiber River. However, because of the olden times the ravines are already succumbed by the remains of the past civilization this time.

Archeological evidence supports the claim saying there were actually walled cities on each of these hills before. Archeologists and historians also cited that they have found evidence of early antagonism between people dwelling on the Esquiline and Quirinal hills against those dwellers on the Palatine and Velian hills. It is for this reason why they claim that people before have chosen Romulus and Remus to be the leaders of the warring peoples dwelling on the Palatine and Aventine hills respectively.

Weather in Rome

Many Romans suggest that the best time to tour in Rome is from the middle of September to October. During this time, there is a little rain in the place and is a bit chilly too; but overall the temperatures turn out to be a lot better as compared to other months. On the other hand, no one suggests to tour in the place in November; although some says it is still a bit okay to tour here in the first half of November.

Summer is also claimed as not an ideal season to visit Rome since it is really scorching in the place during such time. The weather here in March is variable and only becomes stable in the month of April. Meanwhile, during the month of October, the temperature is really cold at night but is still tolerable as compare to some other months.
