The Esquiline Hill (/skwlan/; Latin: Collis Esquilinus; Italian: Esquilino [eskwilino]) is one of the celebrated Seven Hills of Rome. Its southern-most cusp is the Oppius (Oppian Hill).
The origin of the name Esquilino is still under much debate. One view is that the Hill was named after the abundance of Italian oaks, aesculi, that resided there. Another view is that, during Rome's infancy, the Capitolium, the Palatinum, and the northern fringes of the Caelian were the most-populated areas of the city, whose inhabitants were considered inquilini, in-towners; those who inhabited the external regions Aurelian, Oppius, Cispius, Fagutal were considered exquilini, suburbanites.
The Esquiline Hill includes three prominent spurs, which are sometimes called "hills" as well:
Cispian (Cispius) - northern spur
Oppian (Oppius) - southern spur
Fagutal (Fagutalis) - western spur
Rising above the valley in which was later built the Colosseum, the Esquiline was a fashionable residential district.
According to Livy, the settlement on the Esquiline was expanded during the reign of Servius Tullius, Rome's sixth king, in the 6th century BC. The king also moved his residence to the Hill, in order to increase its respectability.
The political advisor and art patron Maecenas (70 BC-8 BC) sited his famous gardens, the first gardens in the Hellenistic-Persian garden style in Rome, on the Esquiline Hill, atop the Servian Wall and its adjoining necropolis, near the gardens of Lamia. It contained terraces, libraries and other aspects of Roman culture. At the Oppius, Nero (37-68) confiscated property to build his extravagant, mile-long Golden House, and later still Trajan (53-117) constructed his bath complex, both of whose remains are visible today. The 3rd century AD Horti Liciniani, a group of gardens (including the relatively well-preserved nymphaeum formerly identified as the non-extant Temple of Minerva Medica), were probably constructed on the Esquiline Hill. Farther to the northeast, at the summit of the Cispius, is the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.
In 1781, the first known copy of the marble statue of a Discus thrower the so-called Discobolus of Myron was discovered on the Roman property of the Massimo family, the Villa Palombara, on the Esquiline Hill. The famous Esquiline Treasure, now in the British Museum, was found on the Esquiline Hill.
The central location allows you to walk to the center of Rome on foot; Colosseum and Parco di Colle Oppio are less than 15 min away. You can walk to Piazza Venezia and Altare Della Patria passing through the suggestive Via Panisperna in less than 30 min. Via dei Fori Imperiali is even closer!
Often with friends we walk from home and make some new tours in Rome: I assure you it is beautiful to go to the Trevi Fountain on foot walking in Via Delle Quattro Fontane, which from Santa Maria Maggiore goes up to Piazza Barberini, after crossing the Via del Quirinale, where the beautiful Four Fountains are located.
We really enjoy walking around Rome, often I go to get an ice cream at the Pantheon, and maybe if I want to get tired and walk a little longer I go to St. Peter, Its only 4 km !!!
If, however, in a hurry or other reasons, you want to take public transport, we have Metro A Vittorio Emanuele Station at 200 mt, Metro B Termini Station (and Termini Train Station) at 300 mt.
Just outside Termini Train Station youll find all the bus and tram lines you ever need.
If you arrive by plane, around Termini Station (Via Giolitti and Via Marsala) there are all the points of arrival and departure of the buses to Fiumicino and Ciampino Airports.
It is imperatively required a decorous and respectful attitude toward the palace and other residents. Be careful not to make noise before 8am and after 22pm
You are required to have the greatest attention on the terrace and above all on the lookout balcony: do not throw anything underneath, pay close attention to your children who may inadvertently playing could throw something: a pebble becomes a bullet from this height! We put a gate to access to the lookout terrace for that very reason. There is no lock but it can be closed, especially for the children's safety too.
