Day 2 - Palatine Hill Roman Political Order

We kick off the day on Palatine Hill, the area Roman nobles called home, spanning over 131 acres of green space above the city. We’ll take some time to enjoy the views before descending to the Roman Forum, where key political, religious, and social activities took place. Here, you will start to piece together the story of Roman governance and understand how the senate, priests, military, and even the legal system functioned. We’ll then climb up to explore the Campidoglio, a beautiful Renaissance-era piazza designed by Michelangelo that has been home to Rome’s city council and the site of the Musei Capitolini, one of the world’s preeminent archaeological museums. Due to its vast collection and architectural beauty, it has hosted many state visits. The EU was itself conceived in one of its halls, which you will have the opportunity to visit. We’ll conclude the day by heading down to Rome’s famed Jewish Quarter to take an aperitivo with a special guest prepared to explain Italy’s political history.
