PALATINE HILLS & THE ROMAN FORUM

Haisshhh...x abis2 lagik citer nih... Banyk cerita2 yg tertangguh, nampak gayanya citer yg dalam2 negara tu terpaksalah ditunda..memang x sempat. I don't know how others catch up with their stories. Kasik tips sket? Alhamdulillah, misi ke Tanah Haram telah pon selamat dilalui. Nothing extraordinary happened, and I was so glad, relieve and happy at the same time. I wish i can be there again in the near future, Insyaallah!  Today, in a blink of an eye, i need to change all my itinerary for Seoul as the kiddos merengek2 nak ngikut plak.... Booked flight, changed hostels (as Namsans are fulled, no more occupancy for 4 pax), etc..etc.. Tomorrow I need to renew Farah's passport as it has expired for quite some times.

Alrite, back to business! Lepas ke Colosseum,kami ke Palatine Hills dan Roman Forum plak. Palatin Hills n The Roman Forum are 2 separate places but very near to each other. They r very historical, just like the Colosseum but i guess they are not as glam and famous. Perhaps, the Colosseum has taken all the limelight from them. Masok ke tmpat2 ni pon free bile dah belik tiket colloseum tu.. Nampk sangt kurang glamornya...ha..ha..Even dalam wikitravel pon x da info pasal mika..alahai, sedihnya mak!

I, myself really do not know the existence of these 2 places before i made my research on Rome. Anyway, here's some info on Palatine Hill and Roman Forum taken from Wiki:

The Palatine Hill (Latin: Collis Palatium or Mons Palatinus) is the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 40 metres above the Forum Romanum, looking down upon it on one side, and upon the Circus Maximus on the other.

Meanwhile, The Roman Forum (Latin: Forum Romanum, Italian: Foro Romano) is a rectangular forum (plaza) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome. Citizens of the ancient city referred to this space, originally a marketplace, as the Forum Magnum, or simply the Forum.   It was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the site of triumphal processions and elections; the venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches; and the nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city's great men. The teeming heart of ancient Rome, it has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history. Located in the small valley between the Palatine and Capitoline Hills, the Forum today is a sprawling ruin of architectural fragments and intermittent archeological excavations attracting numerous sightseers (taken from wiki).
