"Rome's First Houses"
Just south of the Roman Forum and offering a stunning view of the ancient city, this area includes imperial and patrician residences including those of the Emperor Domitian. Originally the Domus Flavia had walls completely lined with polished marble - Domitian feared assassination and in this way he could see the reflection of anyone coming towards him. The courtyard still has its fine pavement in colored marble. It was also the place where the first settlers built their huts under the guidance of Romulus. You can still find the hole made by the hut posts on a closer inspection.
