Choose a holiday apartment in Rome ColosseumAs one of the oldest districts in Rome, the Colosseum area is perfect for those holiday-makers who want to experience Roman culture at its most authentic. As well as being home to one of Italy's biggest attractions -- The Colosseum -- it is also void of the shopping centres and fast food restaurants we are so used to experiencing at home. Once there, you will feel as though you have truly stepped into Italy, and you will be able to enjoy everything this magnificent city has to offer. From haunting historical attractions to true Italian gastronomy, renting an apartment by the Colosseum in Rome will leave you feeling awe struck throughout your entire vacation.
Those who are drawn to the Colosseum area often stay in the area because of the attraction that gives the district its name. The Colosseum itself stands as a testimony to beautiful Roman architecture, but has a dark past. As the venue where thousands of men and women died for the sports that would entertain the Roman elite, The Colosseum was an arena of death. Visitors who venture there can sit where revellers once sat, and stand where the main action took place.
During summer months it is an ideal place for a moonlit tour, and can also act as a starting point for other night time tours through Rome.
Once you have exhausted the Colosseum, you can visit the Palatine Hill, which is the most central of Rome's seven hills. The Palatine Hill is filled with mythology and ancient Roman culture; it is rumoured to be the place where Romulus and Remus were kept by a She-Wolf, and it is the perfect place to look out over the Roman Forum.
Once you have visited Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum will provide you with hours more of ancient Roman entertainment. As the area that was once home to government buildings, gladiatorial matches, speeches, and criminal trials, people who go there can immerse themselves in the ancient ruins that were once at the heart of all Roman life.
As the Colosseum area is so rich with Roman history, it has lost very little of the village-like feel that existed there thousands of years ago. The Colosseum also offers unparalleled opportunities to experience Italian gastronomy. Within all the small winding streets are authentic Roman restaurants, such as the Taverna dei Quaranta, which is filled with Roman delicacies and Italian regional specialties. For those who love pizza, Il Tajut is a small family run eatery with a cosy vibe. If you are a fan of the spaghetti carbonara recipe, then pay La Carbonarra a visit to experience the signature dish and other classic Italian meals. No matter what your tastes are, the Colosseum area will offer something to satisfy them in every sense of the word.
