Hotel Colosseum

The hotel Capo d’Africa has an extraordinary location within walking distance of the Colosseum, one of the most majestic monuments of the past, symbol of the Eternal City, and scene of mortal combats between gladiators and wild animals. The name of the area, Celio, dates all the way back to a legendary Etruscan hero known as Celio Vibenna. In the imperial age, it was one of the residential areas most in favor with the noble families, and even now the majestic remains of the Baths of Caracalla afford a glimpse of its past splendor. When the archeological area was created at the beginning of the last century, the district became a delightful expanse of greenery situated between downtown Rome and the Appian Way, including the park of Villa Celimontana, gardens, ancient churches, and Roman remains.
