- WHERE TO STAY
- CRUISE PORTS
Hotels near the Colosseum are by necessity to the north, north west and east of the Colosseum. The large tract of land taken up by the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum itself take up most of the land to the west and south.
Just to the north of the Colosseum is the ancient traditional Rione Monti district stretching from the Colosseum over towards Cavour Metro.
A favourite with locals, hard to believe you are in the heart of the capital city of Rome - almost a village atmosphere.
A great alternative to the heaving tourists over in Trastevere seeking the same 'authentic' Italian experience. This area is very atmospheric to walk, the narrow streets stopping larger levels of traffic.
Accommodation here is surprisingly affordable for such a central area and again surprisingly there is accommodation for all budgets.
Immediately to the east of the Colosseum is a small lively district of bars, restaurants and some hotels. Hotels here are relatively sparse and have a definite price premium.
As you head north east towards Manzoni Metro there are a few good value 4-star hotels around Manzoni, only about ten-fifteen minutes' walk from the Colosseum and Roman Forum.
These offer very good value for the class of hotel, and the convenient Metro will get you to the other main sights on the other side of the city like the Vatican and Spanish Steps in a very short time.
In relation to the rest of the major sights in Rome, the big plus is the Metro line that runs through the district with stations at Cavour and the Colosseum itself. The Metro will take you quickly to the Spanish Steps and near the Vatican.
It's only ten minutes' walk along the side of the Roman Forum from the Colosseum into the ancient city of Rome.
As a major attraction, all of Rome's hop on, hop off sightseeing buses stop at the Colosseum too.
For airport transfers, Termini Station is about a mile away where you have a choice of train or bus lines to the airports and is Rome's central station if you are travelling within Italy by train.
