The origins of Rome are located between seven hills near the river Tiber in Italy. There according to the legend 753 v. Chr. the foundation of the city of Rome by Romulus have taken place. Romulus is said to have been a son of the god of war Mars and had a twin brother named Remus. The brothers were destined to rule the country.
