The Seven Hills; Rome and Providence


Rome was built on seven hills. Do you know them? They are:
Aventine
Caelian
Capitoline
Esquiline
Palatine
Quirinal
Viminal
And so too was the the city in which I was born, Providence, RI, built on seven hills. They are:
Prospect or College Hill
Constitution Hill
Tockwotten Hill at Fox Point
Smith Hill
Federal Hill (My Mom and Dad were born here)
Christian Hill at Hoyle Square (junction of Cranston and Westminster Street)
Weybosset Hill at lower end of Weybosset Street. Weybosset Hill was leveled in the early 1880s to construct the Turks Head Building.

My love of things Italian was destined.

    How do Bear Hill, fruit Hill, Lippitt Hill, mount Pleasant, and Smith Hill figure into the mix?
