The Caelian Hill in Rome.

The Caelian Hill, measuring approximately 2 km in length and with an elevation of 500 meters, is counted as one of Rome's hills, although a good portion of the hill lies outside the bounds of the pomerium. During the Republican period the hill was still used for burials but by the Imperial period the Caelian had become a fashionable residential quarter. During the first century AD the Caelian was chosen to be the site of a monumental platform temple dedicated to the deified emperor Claudius (divus Claudius). This project went through several phases, being interrupted under Nero who transformed it into a nymphaeum. The project was completed under the administration of the Flavians.
