More about Hotel Flaminius

Portico di Ottavia

by Julius_Caesar

Built in honour of Augustus’s sister Octavia (the abandoned wife of Mark Antony), this is the only surviving portico of what used to be the monumental piazza of Circuì Flaminius. The part we see today is the great central atrium originally coverei by marble facings. The rectangular portico enclosed temples dedicated to Jupiter and Juno, decorated with bronze statues.

Battle of Lake Trasimeno

by iandsmith

This somewhat sad historical site (and even sadder person in the photo) is not easy to find though you will pick up the indicators if you're there.
Someone obviously made an effort some years ago to outline some of what went on in this area where the classic Battle of Lake Trasimeno was fought and whose strategies are still taught today in military schools.
Haniibal's famous victory in 217BC stunned the superior Roman forces. With just 10,000 troops he spread his forces in the then lakeside forest and bade them be calm while the Romans, all 22,000 of them led by the consul Flaminius, marched along the lakeside road in pursuit, oblivious of the nearby threat.
When Hannibal's soldiers attacked, sweeping down the slopes, they forced most of the Romans into the lake and, with their heavy armour, a majority of them drowned. 16,000 Romans perished while Hannibal lost only 1,500 men.
Today there are some plaques at the eight sites, some along a narrow dirt road, with descriptions of what happened and they have uncovered over 100 mass graves near Tuoro sul Trasimeno.

Castor+Pollux, Boys at the Top of The Stairs, Pt 2

by von.otter

“On the steps of the Capitol itself, stand two colossal statues of Castor and Pollux, each with his horse, finely executed.”
from a letter written by Percy Shelley to a friend, T.L.P., Esq. dated 23.March.1819, Rome

BROTHER TWINS They are Castor & Pollux. Because their mother, Leda, first slept with Zeus, then with King Tyndareus of Sparta within the same night Pollux is divine, and Castor is mortal. They are inseparable, never doing anything without the other at his side.

On 15 July 499 BC, during a battle on the shores of Lake Regillus where the Romans took the offensive against their neighboring communities, these twin brothers, of extraordinary beauty and stature, dressed as divine knights were seen, with their lances at rest, at the forefront of the cavalry leading it to victory.

At exactly the same moment in the Foro Romano two identical youths were seen dismounting their horses and leading them to drink at the Fountain of Juturna. Those in the Forum were drawn to the young men and asked of the battle. The youths told their questioners that the Romans had won the day, and immediately vanished. All who had seen them swore that they were the Dioscuri, Castor and Pollux, twin sons of Jupiter and Leda, and the primary stars in the Gemini constellation.

With their mighty steeds the regal Dioscuri stand at the top of the Cordonato greeting all visitors. They are Roman copies of Greek originals dating from the late Imperial era, originally from a temple in the Circus Flaminius.

They are magnificent!

The Coliseum and the Martyrs.

by breughel

No tradition existed in Rome in the Middle Ages which associated the martyrs in any way with the Coliseum. It was only in the 17th c. that this amphitheatre came to be regarded as a scene of early Christian heroism.
It were pious personages like Carlo Tomassi and several popes (Clement X, Benedict XIV) who first closed the exterior arcades and made the Coliseum become a sanctuary.
It is a fact that when the Coliseum stood in grave danger of demolition it was saved by the pious belief which placed it in the category of monuments of the early Martyrs.

But are there real historical grounds for regarding it so?
In the Catholic Church the specialists of the acts of the Saints and Martyrs are the Bollandists, they are Jesuits and have strong links with Belgium where they started and continue their hagiographical work.
According to father H. Delehaye, a famous Bollandist, it is probable that some of the Christians were killed by wild beasts in the Coliseum but there is just as much reason to suppose that they met their death in one of the other places dedicated to the cruel amusements of imperial Rome: the Circus Flaminius, the Stadium of Domitian, etc.
Little attention was paid by the Christians of the first age to the actual place of a martyr's sufferings so that historical evidence is inconclusive.

where to stay in rome

by mymindislost2001

please advise where to stay? attending soccer game at romes olmypic stadium would like resonable priced hotel not to far from stadium,please advise

Re: where to stay in rome

by leics

www.venere.com is the best site for finding accommodationin rome (and Italy). It is reliable, has good mapping (so you can see where the hotel is in relation to the stadium) and honest guest reviews.

The stadium is on the Via del Foro Italico, about 6km from the centre of the city.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=rome%20olympic%20stadium&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl

You could stay nearer the city centre and take Metro line A (direction Batitistini) to the end of the line, then take bus 32 (direction Piazzale della Farnesina)....but I suspect it might be very crowded on match days.

I stayed at Hotel Flaminius which is right next to all the sports facilities on the outskirts of Rome. We had a large room, very clean (it even had a jacuzzi), and were served an excellent breakfast every morning. The prices are quite low. We booked a package deal that included 5 nights & airfare for $418.

Re: where to stay in rome

by iulia28

I previously reccomended to one of the forum members a hotel in Rome called Ambra Palace ... is at a 20-minutes distance from the Stadio Olimpico, but right next to Termini Station (main train station)...is a four-star hotel, really offering 4 star services, no doubt about that!

Enjoy your trip!!!

Rome in May

by Ronaldina

Hello,

I programm to visit Rome end of may 2009. I want to assist to the champions league final game in The Olympico.
Any advices about hotels, things not to do... and places to visit.

Happy new year :-)

Re: Rome in May

by chrisrobo

if you have not booked your hotel yet you will be lucky to get one as friends who are going have booked in november and still had problems with availability and inflated costs.

Re: Rome in May

by leics

Rome is an entirely wonderful city, stuffed with things to see and explore.

The VT Rome pages are full of information and tips, all written by VT members who are locals or visitors. Use the searchbox top right to find them.

For accommodation, look at www.venere.com which is a reliable site, used by many VT-ers, and has honest guest reviews.

Places to visit: the Vatican museums (book your ticket in advance if you don't want to queue...many VT-ers use www.tickitaly.com), St Peter's Basilica, The Colosseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill, Trajan's Markets, San Clemente, Santa Maria Maggiore, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, the catacombs..........and hundreds more.

Don't buy the Rome Pass unless you intend to visit all the places which give you a discount. Buy a three (or 7)day travel pass instead. Travel passes allow you unlimted travel on buses, trams and Metro. A 3-day pass cost 11 euro in March.

Re: Rome in May

by gilabrand

For a hotel near the stadium try Hotel Flaminius - a 3 star hotel on the outskirts of Rome. It is very inexpensive compared to other Rome hotels and was virtually empty when I was there (December). Our room was large, the beds were comfortable, and the buffet breakfast was excellent. We even had a jacuzzi.

A fantastic and affordable place to stay (either in the hostel or in a room within a communal apartment) is the beehive. A wonderful arty source of accommodation near the termini station.

Many thanks for your kind replies.

Re: Rome in May

by cmbarc

Hi
I recommend spending some time in the area of Trastevere as it's really beautiful and there are loads of bars and restaurants. Look out for happy hours though as full price can sting a bit!

I have been to Rome a couple of times. Once I stayed in a 3* hotel and once I stayed self- catering. I found it was much better in a self-catering apartment as you don't have to worry about someone walking in all the time! If you are looking for an apartment, it may be worth checking out www.friendlyrentals.com

Have fun!

Re: Rome in May

I always stay in hotels (including in Rome) and it has never crossed my mind to worry about someone walking in!

Am I missing something?
