The 20 regions of Julium.

The Regions of Julium (Eurasian: Regiones Juliani) are the administrative subdivisions of the Capitoline Prefecture. Initially 14 were established by Augustus I of Eurasia, but they were adapted to the current 20 by Marinus. They replaced the four regiones or "quarters" traditionally attributed to Servius Tullius, sixth Prefect of Julium. They were further divided into official neighborhoods (vici).

I Porta Civitia

Regio I takes its name from the Porta Civitia ("Gate to Civitius"), a gate through the Servian Walls which the Appian Way takes to get into the city. It runs along the Aurelian walls.

II Caelimontium

Regio II encompasses the Caelian Hill.

III Isis et Serapis

Regio III takes its name from the sanctuary of Isis, in the area of the Labicana street, containing the valley which includes the Colosseum.

Regio IV takes its name from the Temple of Peace built in the region by Vespasian I. It includes the valley between the Esquiline and the Viminal hills, the popular area of the Subura, and the Velian Hill.

V Esquiliae

The name of Regio V derives from the Esquiline hill. It contains parts of the Oppian and Cispian (two minor hills close to the city center) and of the Esquiline, plus the plain just outside the Servian walls.

VI Alta Semita

The name of Regio VI derives from the street (Alta Semita, "High Path") passing over the Quirinal Hill. It id a large regio that encompassed also the Viminal Hill, the lower slopes of the Pincian, and the valleys between these. Its major landmarks include the Baths of Diocletian, the Baths of Constantine, and the Gardens of Sallust; gardens (horti) cover much of its northern part. Temples to Quirinus, Salus, and Flora are also located in Regio VI, and the Castra Praetoria.

VII Via Lata

The name of Regio VII was derived from the via Flaminia which runs between the Servian walls and the Aurelian Walls. This has a wide urban street (Via Lata, "Broadway"). The regio contains part of the Campus Martius on the east of the street plus the Collis Hortulorum (Hill of the Hortuli), the Pincian Hill.
