Esquiline is the name of one of the Seven Hills of Rome, in addition to this large area, quite popular with the convenience of being a unique crossroads. If it is true that all roads lead to Rome, in this neighborhood at least get all the railways: here is the Termini Station, Rome's largest one and one of the most important in Europe.HISTORY
: The origins of the Esquiline recall the imperial period. The urban reform desired by Augustus buried among the other under ten meters of land these polluted and pestilential soils where later arose the gardens of Maecenas. Suetonius says that Nero watched from here the fire burning Rome. During the Middle Ages the area passed into the possession of various monastic orders, and then returned to host residential villas. At villa Palombara, in the seventeenth century, was built the famous Alchemical Door: there is a magic formula engraved by Cabbalists used to manufacture the gold, even though up until now nobody has been able to decipher it.AMBIENCE
: Multicultural, vibrant, full of people coming and going. The areas near the stations always have something in common, a taste of the border, the border crossed. Here we are in the heart of Italy, literally, and you always have the feeling of having to move to not lose what is going on you!PLACES
: Piazza Vittorio, full of arcades, is one of the busiest squares of Rome and hosts a colorful market, with people of every race and culture. At Villa Palombara do not miss the Alchemical Door (or Porta Magica), a place of great fascination for all interested in esotericism.
Finally, the inevitable beautiful churches: Santa Maria Maggiore, San Giovanni in Laterano and Santa Croce in Gerusalemme.
