We arrived at this place via the underground since it's only a short distance from the Coliseum. The shape of the arena allows vistors to imagine the chariot races that would of taken place many years ago. I think this place hasn't really been exploited...More

Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of
ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and
embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the
