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 :)
De verhuurder heeft ons veel goede informatie gegeven, veel handige tips waar wij gretig gebruik van gemaakt hebben. Het appartement heeft een ideale ligging, vlakbij het Colosseum en het Forum ook andere bezienswaardigheden liggen in de buurt allemaal te belopen. De buurt is uitstekend allemaal kleine cafe's waar je 's-ochtends kunt ontbijten. Leuke restaurantjes om 's-avonds te gaan eten. De bus die verder naar het centrum en het Vaticaan gaat ligt om de hoek
Emanuel couldn't have been a better host. He was excellent. His mom greeted us, showed us around the apartment, explained everything and was available for us anytime we had questions. She also showed us some great restaurants, and stores and shops close by. The apartment was not only spacious, clean and quiet at night, but it was also so close to EVERYTHING! We LOVED it! Walking to most places only took a 1/2 hour. Also if you wanted to see more, taxi's, city buses, grocery stores, restaurants and wine stores were right around the corner. Emanuel was excellent for providing us with information via the internet and also brochures left in the apartment, on the sites to see, how to see them and how to get around paying less and skipping lines. If you stay here, you won't be disappointed!
The apartment is very cozy, located really next to the Colosseum.
There are few restaurants nearby (when we were there it rained the whole trip).
A little supermarket is situated right at the corner.
The host (Emanuele's mother) was nice to us and she gave us plenty of informations when we arrived.
Il nostro soggiorno è stato piacevolissimo; Emanuele era all'estero, ma i genitori Susanna e Alfredo sono stati padroni di casa gentilissimi e prodighi di consigli (ottimi quelli gastronomici) per trascorrere al meglio le nostre giornate. Siamo stati accolti come fossimo vecchi amici e fra noi si è instaurato subito un rapporto molto amichevole. L'appartamento è comodo e silenzioso ed è come ce lo aspettavamo. E' in posizione strategica (praticamente vista Colosseo) per raggiungere anche a piedi numerosi itinerari turistici. A due passi taxi, bus e Metro.
It’s a greatly situated apartment, just 5 minutes to Coliseum, Forum and the Palatine hill; also it’s close to the metro station.
There’re nice restaurants, cafes and shops around so there will be no problem in doing a grocery shopping or having a delicious dinner =)
The apartment is quite spacious, light, nicely furnished and cozy.
We were met by Emanuel’s parents who kindly explained us everything about the apartment and show us a neighborhood, some nice restaurants and shops.
Thank you Emanuel, Susanna and Alfredo for the hospitality, we had a really great time in Rome.
Emanuele's apartment is in a wonderful location - just a few steps away from the Colosseum and Roman Forum. The apartment's proximity to the Colosseum metro line and a taxi stand also makes getting around the city a breeze. The apartment itself is tastefully furnished, spacious and comfortable. As Emanuele was away during our visit, his mother, Susanna, met us at the apartment. Susanna generously took the time to show us around the neighbourhood, pointing out good eateries and gourmet shops near the apartment. She was also very happy to provide us with further information about the apartment throughout our stay. We would definitely return to Emanuele's apartment the next time we find ourselves in Rome!
Emanuele wasn't there but his mother Susanna was very welcoming and helpful. She was waiting for us to get to the apartment even though it was quite late. Later on she showed us the local food joints as well as explained all the apartment features. the apartment itself was super cozy and a perfect start to our vacation.
It was so close to the colisseum that it made our life easier.

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 :)
