Maps and Geography

Looking into the geography of Rome I found some facts about the city’s geographical profile. The city itself is 1,285 kilometer squared. It is situated 41° 54′ N and 12° 29′ E, lying West of the Apennine Mountains.

It is known as the ‘city of the seven hills.’ (Viminal, Patatine, Esquiline, Capitoline, Caelian and Aventine). In ancient Rome, each of these hills held a separate walled cities.

The Tiber River (flowing from the Apennine Mountains) passes by Rome and it has a length of 405km.
