The Clivus Capitolinus is the prime road in antiquity that led you from the Roman Forum to the Capitoline Hill. It goes past the Temple of Saturn on one side and the Temple of Vespasian and Portico of the Harmonious Gods on the other. It is a work going back to the Regal period (Tarquins). When you walk on this street you are teleported back to Ancient Rome, to a degree, on this very road that all triumphing generals passed, on their way to make a sacrifice to Jupiter Optimus Maximus on the Capitoline Hill.
