This hill is located outside of the ancient city of Rome to the west of the Tiber and is not considered one of the Seven Hills of Rome. From an early stage the Janiculum was connected to the city by fortifications and a bridge over the Tiber. It also was the site of important water-powered mills in the Roman Empire.
