This district owes its name to a legend, which tells of the conquest of the hill by the Etruscan Celio Vibenna. In ancient times the area contained temples, public buildings - like the "macellum", the great market from the age of Nero, and the "castra peregrinorum", the barracks which housed the armies of the province - and prosperous dwellings. In medieval and Renaissance times the district was practically deserted, except for a few ancient churches and villas.
In addition to the park of Villa Celimontana, which will certainly repay a visit, this neighborhood has a wealth of ancient churches. These include Santo Stefano Rotondo, which dates from the fifth century and is the oldest circular church to be found in Rome, and the Basilica of Saints John and Paul, which was built on the site of an ancient "titulus", or titular church, originally the house of two of Constantine's officers who were martyred for their faith. The church of San Gregorio Magno is medieval; it was built, however, in the place where the saint founded a monastery in 575. The church of Saints Nereo and Achilleo was built more or less on the site of the "titolus fasciolae", which owed its name to the bandage worn by St. Peter round the sores caused by his chains; it dropped off at this spot while he was being led to his martyrdom. Of considerable historical interest is the tomb of the Scipio family in Via di Porta San Sebastiano; a little further on the columbarium of Pomponius Hylas, with its painted and mosaic decoration, can be visited. In nearby Via di Porta Latina is the church of San Giovanni a Porta Latina, which dates from the fifth century, as does the chapel of San Giovanni in Oleo, near the city Gate: both buildings have been substantially altered over time.
There is a metro stop just 100 mt away, in front of the Colosseum. There is also a taxi station and plenty of trams and buses that will virtually take you anywhere you need to in Rome.
Other Things to Note
There are plenty of handy super markets just around the corner and plenty of bakeries where to got pizza, sandwiched, or just fresh bread. Some of the restaurants and wine bars are also worth a honor mention
Just be respectful as You would like guests to be in your own home :)
El apartamento es suficientemente espacioso para las cuatro personas que fuimos. Salón amplio, dos habitaciones, dos baños y una pequeña cocina para preparar los desayunos.
En cuanto a la localización, nos resultó muy fácil movernos por la ciudad en transporte público (hay varias líneas que dejan muy cerca) pero también se puede ir andando a muchos sitios. Es genial ver el Coliseo todos los días a la vuelta de la esquina y de noche iluminado es mágico.
En cuanto a limpieza, en general, el apartamento se puede decir que estaba limpio, con algún aspecto mejorable como alguna toalla con manchas y algunos utensilios de la cocina.
Nos recibió Susana, la madre de Emanuele, muy amablemente nos explicó todo y estuvo a nuestra disposición vía WhatsApp en todo momento por si necesitábamos algo, al igual que Emanuele, que además nos envió por mal algunas recomendaciones muy útiles. Recomiendo el apartamento para pasar vuestra estancia en Roma.
The apartment was great for us. We were met at the apartment by Susanna who told us all we needed to know. Unfortunately there is only a/c in the living room, and it was particularly hot in Rome the days we were there. I asked Susanna for fans for the bedroom and she duly obliged. They were a great help. The experience was very positive. The location is great. The information regarding restaurants and supermarket was helpful.
The apartment was very central to many of Romes sightseeing attactions which we all enjoyed. The apartment was well appointed with all a travellers needs. There are quite a few good restaurants/cafes to sample the Italian cuisine but try further back from the tourist traps around the colossum. There are two supermarkets a block or two away, Carrafor being the the better.
Whilst the airconditioning in the living room was a must on our very hot week 37C+, it didnt not really reach the bedrooms for sleeping at night. Overall, a good Rome experience.
Emanuel excelente y su constante comunicación, una pena que no lo conocimos en persona. Nos recibio su madre de no muy buena forma, pero estamos de vacaciones y lo dejamos pasar.
El apartamento está muy bien ubicado a 200 metros del Coliseo. Es muy comodo con un solo inconveniente; el único aire acondicionado que tiene estaba en el comedor y no habia ningún tipo de aire o ventilador en los dormitorios y los dias que nosotros ustuvimos hizo temperaturas de hasta 39 grados con lo cual fue muy dificil dormir por las noches.
Todo lo demás: Excelente
The apartment was just as described. It was in a great location right by the Colliseum. Emanuele and his mother were very helpful and welcoming. You can't go wrong with this rental.
The apartment is located in a fantastic area of Rome, literally around the corner from the Colosseum. The area is very convenient as it is filled with great restaurants and bars and has two supermarkets nearby. Beyond the Colosseum, you can walk to most of the other sites or catch public transport which is also close by. The apartment itself was very comfortable for the 5 (2 adults and 3 children) of us with everything you need to be able to enjoy your time in Rome. We were met by the lovely Susanna, who showed us around the apartment and gave us tips on the local area.
Prior to our extended stay in Rome, we received a detailed list from Emanuele of key places to visit, shop, and enjoy during our stay. This information was invaluable! Upon arrival, we were met by Emanuele's mother, Susanna, who was most gracious and welcoming. The apartment was perfect, the location provided easy and walkable access to the Metro and delightful neighborhoods. Highly recommended for a short or extended stay!

About the Host, Emanuele
I was born in Rome but I went to High School and College in the States and have been traveling pretty much all of my life. I truly feel free when I am exploring another county, its culture, the food, the people ... amazing! I lived in Italy, Spain, Sweden, Australia, US, Brazil ...plenty of more countries to see and the clock it's still ticking. I have lots of awesome places (restaurants, museums, sightseeing) to recommend to you guys while visiting Rome, and if you're up for it Caffé or Aperitivo is on me :)
