Completed in 80 AD, the Colosseum is approaching 2,000 years of age; it is considered a wonder of the world and a testament to Roman engineering and architecture. The Roman Forum, where the Roman Empire made decisions for hundreds of years, is also located in the Colosseo district. At one point in time in that place, senators argued points that have helped shaped the modern face of society. Thanks to the hotels strategically situated around the area, waking up at one of our great hotels near the Colosseum means you can enjoy this sight before breakfast, when it’s at its most peaceful.
