It is the first of the four papal basilicas and the oldest and most important church in the West. Set on the hills of Celio, this church and the vast surrounding complex that includes the Pontifical Lateran Palace, the Palace of the Canons, the Roman Major Seminary and the Pontifical Lateran University, enjoy the privileges of extraterritoriality recognized by the Italian government to the Holy See therefore it has the full and exclusive jurisdiction.
The area on which built the church once belonged to the family Lateran. Their property was confiscated because they had conspired against the emperor Nero and gave shelter to Christians in their home.
The first church was built in the fourth century AD by the Emperor Constantine. The Popes have lived here until 1305.
The Colosseum, originally called Amphitheatrum Flavium or even simpler Coliseum, is the largest amphitheater in the world and it's located in the center of Rome.
"As long as the Coliseum exists, Rome will exist; when the Colosseum falls, Rome will also fall; when Rome falls, the world will fall too." These famous words were spoken by an English monk in the 8th century AD. And it was also him, Bede Venerabilis, the first to call this building the Colosseum.
The Romans called it instead with a completely different name, the Flavian Amphitheatre. This name structure owes to the ruling family who built it. The Emperor Vespasian, the first of the emperors of the Flavian family, he built the most famous monument and which is also one of the most visited in the world.
The Palatine Hill is one of the seven hills of Rome and is one of the oldest parts of the city. The site is now a large open-air museum and can be visited during the day. The entrance is in Via San Gregorio, or you can get on the Palatine also entering in the Roman Forum.
According to Roman mythology it was the Palatine hill the birthplace of Romulus and Remus, the brothers fed by the wolf, those who became the founders of Rome.
Today the Palatine is one of the prettiest spots in the city of Rome, the seat of the housing of the ruling class of ancient Rome and, afterwards, the gardens of the Farnese family. The vestiges of the past are inside of the rich greenery that stretches along the slopes of the hill, from which you can enjoy the views of the whole archaeological area below.
