Colosseum & Aventino

" The Colosseum and archeological sites are quintessential Rome! Visit the Aventine Hill for amazing views and a nice surprise. "

Lindy Nieuwpoort, our local from time to momo Rome

The gladiator fights in the Colosseum have appealed to our collective imagination for centuries. They become almost tangible when you enter the amphitheater. The ruins of the Roman Forum stood at the heart of a vast empire, but Palatine Hill is where the oldest ruins of Rome were found, dating back to the Iron Age. The hill overlooks the Circus Maximus track: once the site of spectacular chariot races, but a bleak-looking wasteland today.

Climbing Aventine Hill on a hot summer's day in Rome can be taxing, but the views from the Orange Garden are phenomenal. And the mysterious keyhole at Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta is unforgettable.
