CCR Walks: Romulus & Remus Trail - April 14, 2012

Come with us to the Palatine Hill and explore the history and legends surrounding Romulus and Remus.

Was Romulus a real person? Was he really suckled by a wolf? What does a woodpecker have to do with it? And did he really found a city on the Palatine in April of 537 B.C.? Is there any evidence today of Romulus's walls and of the city he left behind?

Follow this CCR walk to celebrate "Il Natale di Roma," the date of Rome's foundation, by taking a walk up the Palatine Hill to examine what historians and archaeologists have pieced together from the legends, archaeological remains and ancient chronicles.
