This is a picture of the river that people would use to get to the Mediterranean sea. this helped Rome because if the city is being attacked, they could go on the river and escape. That was useful so they didn't die when war took place in Rome. Plus the ocean was a big help because they could see who or what was coming in the distance.
these are the seven mountains that surround Rome, These had a huge impacted on Rome because when Rome was in war (Most of the time) If an enemy was attacking Rome they could have the upper hand and shoot/attack down on the invaders.
