Colosseum

The Colosseum, the iconic symbol of the city, was elected as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World (2007), it is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the capital: not far from the heart of Rome, the Capitol, next to the Roman Forum, has its own  underground station, to ensure an easy landing, and at the same time, rapid movements  to reach the most important areas of the city.
Picturesque centurions welcome the curiousest tourists and going on across the timeless setting of Fori Imperiali, you arrive in Piazza Venezia, merger to the famous Via del Corso, where you will find the most important high fashion shop windows.

Its construction started in 72 AD under Emperor Vespasian, and was completed in 80 AD during Titus reign, with further modifications made under Domitian. Apparently its name derives from a nearby colossal statue of the Sun God of Nero. The huge elliptical amphitheatre had a seating capacity of 50,000 spectators and was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles, such as re-enactments of famous battles, celebrations or dramas.

The Colosseum consists of 3 levels placed on top of one another, reaching a total height of 49 metres. It is made of huge square travertine and tufa blocks placed on top of one another without any mortar and connected by means of metal pins.

Quite close from the famous Piazza Campo de’ Fiori, you will find the best point for nightlife lovers.

Staying in one of our b&bs at the Colosseum means discover breath-taking ancient panoramas.
