Close to the Colosseum
When we say that our hotel Mancino 12 in Rome is really close to the Colosseum – we mean really close! 1200 metres. A distance that is easily covered on foot in a maximum of 15 minutes. That is all that separates the Hotel Mancino 12 from what was known in ancient times as the Flavian Amphitheatre and which today, is one of the major symbols of the capital, tucked in amongst the wonders of the modern world. The location is therefore ideal for anyone who wants to visit Rome and start their sight-seeing journey at one of the most important sites in the city, namely, the Colosseum, which is actually one of the most impressive monuments from ancient Rome and which is, happily, in the main part, still reasonably intact even today.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site that was built in 72 A.D., it is capable of accommodating between 50 and 75,000 people which it has done throughout the centuries at varying types of events ranging from fighting wild animals to gladiatorial combat and executions of criminals. Nowadays you can visit the Colosseum and find out all its secrets whilst admiring the singular architecture, learning about how the underground theatrical system worked and understanding the feats of technical engineering that were undertaken which were part of the reason for it taking 10 years to finish the construction.
The Hotel Mancino 12 is perfect for those who wish to stay somewhere close to the Colosseum and at the same time, are hoping to be able to travel comfortably all around the capital city. This is easily achievable because the hotel is close to the Imperial Forums and the Porta Venezia, is just 60 metres from the nearest public transport stops and is only 10 minutes on foot from the Metro Colosseo stop (line B).
In just a few minutes you can reach the Trevi Fountain and the Quirinale, Piazza Navona and the Capitoline Museums.
