After our visit to the Colosseum we stopped at the Oppio for a drink to relax and watch the sunset. What a glorious position and although November we enjoyed a glorious evening watching the sun go down.

We stayed in Rome for two days. Our hotel was near to the Colosseum. So oppio cafe was a good choice to have our breakfast. We were very satisfied with the quality. Coffees chocolates cruasans and toasts all very good. The view perfect.
