    Stay in the heart of Rome

    by

    We stayed in this apartment / hotel and really enjoyed the experience. The location is brilliant. When you walk out of the building and look right, you can see the Coliseum straight ahead of you ... it is magical.

    Inside the hotel, the rooms are very Italian - quite lavish and stylish, considering the very reasonable price paid.

    Definitely worth looking at if you want a great location, your own large rooms and a decent price.

    Unique Quality: The superb location was an outstanding feature, but the ornate marble floors also stick in my mind quite vividly.

    Directions: Walk away from the Coliseum down Via dei Serpenti and it's on your left.

Anfiteatro Flavio (Coliseo)

by pginer

Well, this is a must see monument. It was built in 72 BC. Many cristians died here, and also slaves and gladiators because the Coliseum was used for spectacles
It was covered by marble but today there is no marble left. 50.000 people gathered here for bloody spectacles.

Colloseum

by mcbeal_ally

The Colosseum or Coliseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium, Italian Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo), is a giant amphitheatre in the center of the city of Rome. Originally capable of seating 45,000–50,000 spectators, it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. It was built on a site just east of the Roman Forum, with construction starting between 70 and 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian. The amphitheatre, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire, was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign.
The Colosseum remained in use for nearly 500 years with the last recorded games being held there as late as the 6th century — well after the traditional date of the fall of Rome in 476. As well as the traditional gladiatorial games, many other public spectacles were held there, such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. The building eventually ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such varied purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry and a Christian shrine.

The glorious Colosseum makes one silent

The Colosseum or Coliseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium, Italian Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo), is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering.

Occupying a site just east of the Roman Forum, its construction started between 70 and 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign (81–96).Originally capable of seating around 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles.

It remained in use for nearly 500 years with the last recorded games being held there as late as the 6th century – well after the traditional date of the fall of Rome in 476. As well as the traditional gladiatorial games, many other public spectacles were held there, such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology.

Anfiteatro Flavio, an icon of Imperial Rome

by annase

The Colosseum was one of the things I really wanted to see whilst in Rome. It's fab. When you look at the old tiered walls of this elliptical amphitheatre that provided seating for 50,000, you cannot just but marvel how much of it is still preserved. Ok, the seating has clearly gone, but the exterior walls look pretty solid.

It is truly amazing when you really think about it. You have to remember the building is ancient, as it was completed almost 2000 years ago in 80 AD. Clearly it is just a ruin compared to what it used to be back in time, as it was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1349 which caused the outer south side to collapse. Much of the tumbled stone was taken away from the site and reused for other buildings in Rome. But it is the largest ever built construction in the Roman Empire, and it is a pretty fab example of Roman architecture and engineering.

The Colosseum was initially used to host gladiatorial games and other public spectacles including simulated sea battles (naumachiae), animal hunts (venatios), re-enactments of famous battles and dramas based on Classical mythology. It remained in use for nearly 500 years.

In the medieval times, the Colosseum underwent several radical changes of use. By the late 6th century a small church had been built into the structure of the amphitheatre and the arena was converted into a cemetery. The numerous vaulted spaces in the arcades under the seating were converted into housing and workshops.

By the 16th century, the Colosseum had become derelict and the church officials sought a productive role for it. The plans included turning it into a wool factory or a bullfight ring. Both projects were later abandoned.

In 1749, the Colosseum was made a sacred site. Later popes initiated various stabilisation and restoration projects, removing the extensive vegetation which had overgrown the structure and threatened to damage it further. Several reconstruction projects were carried out throughout the 19th and 20th centuries

Nice small hotel. Great location

by A TripAdvisor Member

My wife and I just came back from Rome, where we spent 4 beatiful days.
We reserved Hotel Anfiteatro Flavio having a good price through the agency reservationitaly.com.
The hotel has a small entrance without sign, so we have had difficulty in finding the hotel.
Anyway, we found it and we were pleased to be welcomed by very friendly people. The room we got were very nice and clean. I think newly restored.
The location is the middle of everything. There are many nice restaurants and pubs near the hotel and the atmopsphere were very nice.
Ursula and I recommend Anfiteatro Flavio. Tschus

Great little Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

We were very happy with the location, and the staff of the hotel were very helpfull and friendly. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. Our room is in the back of the hotel and was very quiet. This was our first trip to Rome we really enjpyed the neighborhood and especially the 'Gelateria" across the street. We would definately go back to the Anfiteatro Flavio B&B if we ever go back to Rome. We enjoyed our whole trip.

Would recommend this hotel for its location.

by TripAdvisor Member TonyPkDurham_UK

We stayed hear in October 05, having read all the reviews on this website.
Having noted that other people had not had a reservation when they arrived and that some had trouble finding the hotel. I decided to E Mail the hotel direct a couple of days before to check they had my confirmation. (I had booked earlier through a hotel booking website). This in itself is not easy as the hotel homepage is almost impossible to find via any search engine. (---------). They replied almost immediately to confirm.

Next transport from the airport. We opted for Rome Limousine as it was the cheapest at 35 euros for the car. The driver was waiting when we arrived at the airport and again he was early when we wanted the return.

As people have said, the Hotel has no name over the door but the street and number are easy to find. The streets in Rome are very narrow and buildings tall, the hotel isn't very wide but in a terrace which is high. You can get a good view of the Colleseum from about 50m down the street. The Rome forum, colleseum, Trevi Fountain and most other things are within easy walking distance.

We even walked to the Vatican and back which took about 45 minutes each way (its 40min in a taxi).

The hotel is newly refurbished (bathroom has stickers still on the white goods !) very clean and the breakfast was a fairly good standard continental. Staff are also very helpfull if you need them.

There's pleny of bars and restaurants tucked in every street next to the hotel and even a bar with live footy when you need to send the wife shopping on a Saturday.

To summarise probably one of the best locations in Rome. Hotel is basic but adequate (if you don't want to stay in a plastic Hilton.)

Nice hotel,great location

by TripAdvisor Member Elessar_7

We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was a bit narrow but very clean and all the fittings bathroom, wardrobe etc were new.The room was also very quiet and well equipped but an English speaking channel on the TV would have been nice. Breakfast was fine and all the staff were very helpful except for a bit of confusion on the last morning about ringing for a taxi. The location of the hotel is really good especially the Gelataria opposite which we would highly recommend! Overall,if you're looking for a clean, quiet hotel with a good location we would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Fantastic personell!

by A TripAdvisor Member

I don't know about you, I would walk for at least ten minutes with all crossing.

by nightpassage

It may take more than 10 minutes (it's about 1KM), and you seriously risk to break wheels of your luggage on Roman Pavé (Sanpietrini: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sampietrini)
You may take: METRO line B and stop at CAVOUR (it's just a short walk to Via De' Serpenti)
If anyway you decide to go on food DONT follow directions given by cgf, your B&B is closer to Via Cavour than Via Nazionale and it takes much longer from Via Nazionale. This is your pedestrian itinerary:

Via De' Serpenti is very safe, our newly elected President Of The Republic lives there and declared he will not move to Quirinal Palace, so there will be Police everywhere:-) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quirinal_Palace), yet Termini station like all big stations may not be the safest place in the city, but during the day there is no problem at all, but try avoid going there at night.

Sure Renato is right as I gave you the directions like I was driving not walking, I don't live in Rome, I just know something about as I use to go there.. anyway when I walk (and not shopping) I use to do 5 km in 1 hour and in the first 30 minutes almost three km. That's why I wrote "I don't know about you" as I know for myself.
