The B&B Domus Mirabile holiday apartment is located just a fifteen minute walk south of Re Di Roma metro station allowing you ease of access to the whole city and its many popular attractions.
Immediately south lies the Regional Park of the Apppia Antica which is the spooky home of the city’s famous catacombs. As far back as the 2nd century Christians and Pagans were buried here in the many miles of underground tunnels cut into the volcanic stone at several locations close to each other. Some of catacombs are open to the public today for guided tours lasting anything form 20 minutes to an hour. The St. Callixtus catacombs have over 12 miles of funerary tunnels structured over five levels once containing half a million Christians. It was also the burial place of 16 popes in the 3rd century. Frescoes, sculptures, and carved epitaphs allow us a unique window on the history of this incredible city. Most visitors will be pleased to learn that the human remains were removed and reburied back in the 10th century so there’s nothing to be afraid of! You can buy tickets for the tours at the entrances of each of the individual catacombs.
A journey north from the apartment for around 30 minutes on foot will bring you to the city’s most iconic of landmarks, the Colosseum. The profile of this great building remains one of the most dramatic sights in Rome, particularly at night when it is lit up majestically. It is highly recommended to take the guided tour to really appreciate this building’s 2000 year-old history. It was designed to hold more than 50,000 spectators who would appreciate the regular bloody human sacrifices in the name of sport. Beneath the floor of the Colosseum is a huge complex of pathways and cells created to give the animals and humans access to the arena whilst also keeping them separate for obvious reasons. It is quite incredible to learn that the Colosseum once had a cover that could be extended to shade the spectators from the intense heat of the sun on hot summer days. The nearest metro station to the arena is of course Colosseum.
Whilst a large part of the Colosseum structure has somehow survived, the city’s famous Circus Maximus, did not but it’s foundation shape is still clear to see and it is now beautiful public park land where you can relax and enjoy a picnic. You will find it located to the north west of the apartment (Circus Massimo metro). The stadium was built for Roman chariot racing and measured an incredible 2037 feet in length and 387 feet wide. This mega structure was the first and the largest of the Roman Empire and held a mammoth 150,000 spectators.
