Under reign of Tullus Hostilius, the entire population of Alba Longa was forcibly resettled on the Caelian Hill.

Caelian Hill (Caelius = Celio) The Caelian Hill is the southernmost of the four large spurs.

East of the Velia, between the Esquiline, Palatine, and Caelian hills, is the area of the Colosseum (=Colosseo) where there was a small lake before the construction of the Colosseum.

Between the Quirinal and the Esquiline was a lesser spur, the Viminal (Viminalis).

 The Patriarchal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore
Everything here on the Caelian Hill belongs to a dimension, which, almost under a spell, diverges from the hectic and frenetic daily way of life in Rome.
The visitor, who crosses the threshold of the entrance gate, unexpectedly finds himself surrounded and immersed in a reality that, due to the strikingness of the place and an almost unthinkable contact with nature in the centre of the city, induces one to unconsciously remove oneself from the events of the world.
This structure is perfectly preserved and allows one to visit two particular places of Imperial Rome constituted by “Taberne” dating back to between the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D. with an entrance on the Trium Ararum, an ancient road which is no longer visible today and which lead onto the Clivus Scauri.

 Seven Hills
The Caelian Hill takes its name from Caelius Vibena, who was the hero of Roma's struggle with the Tarquins.
It was made of Travertine blocks and was used to support Nero's extension of the Claudian aquaduct that supplied the Imperial palace on the Palatine.
The Arch of Drusus, although a monumental arch built in the third century AD, is not a triumphal arch, but supports the branch of the aquaduct that supplies the Baths of Caracalla.

 Seven hills of Rome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Seven Hills of early Rome were the Cermalus, Cispius, Fagutal, Oppius, Palatium, Sucusa, and Velia, figuring prominently into Roman mythology, religion, and politics; the original city was held by tradition to have been founded by Romulus on the Palatine Hill (Collis Palatinus).

The Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, and Caelian hills are really promintaries of an ancient volcanic ridge.
The Palatine, Aventine, and Capitoline hills were hills seperate from the others (not part of the same ancient ridge).
It also suggests that there was a wall that surrounded the Palatine, Esquiline, Velian, and Caelian hills but left out the Capitoline, Quirinal, and Viminal hills.
