Park
“The hill was the seat of one of the villages from which Rome was built, and the memory of this sort of civil nobility was still alive in the Republican era, according to an inscription found at the Sette Sale, at the Baths of Trajan, which mentions the restoration of the sacellum compitale done at the expense of the inhabitants (de pecunia montanorum)]. In the Augustan subdivision of the city, Mons Oppius was included in Regio III, called Isis et Serapis from the great temple that stood on its south-eastern slopes, between today's Via Labicana and Via Merulana. Already home (in the direction of the Vicus Suburanus) of the Portico of Livia, the height was occupied in the Neronian era by the Domus aurea and by the subsequent Terme di Tito and Traiano. In the Christian era, the Titulus Eudoxiae (today's San Pietro in Vincoli) and the Titulus Equitii (now San Martino ai Monti) settled there. Today it belongs to the Monti district, of which it is the green lung, and is between Via Labicana, via degli Annibaldi, via Cavour, via Giovanni Lanza, via Merulana. The surrounding streets were intensely built between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, while the archaeological emergencies (as far as they remained, at least from the plundering) were included in the vast Parco del Colle Oppio, which descends towards the Colosseum valley.”

Historic Site
“Visiting the Colosseum in Rome is a “must see” for most first time visitors. The Colosseum (or Coliseum), Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill are all located in the same archaeological area of Rome adjacent to one another. The Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill all have separate ticket entrances but share the same admission ticket valid for two days valid for all three sites. You can walk freely between the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill once and enter the Colosseum once during the 2 day validity of the standard admission ticket. The emperors of Rome built in 80 A.D. this large amphitheatre for gladiatorial shows and hunts of wild animals which became the symbol of the Eternal City. The shows were free of charge and the seats were assigned according to the class of spectators. The Colosseum was built primarily to entertain the masses in brutal and barbaric games. Gladiators were slaves, often captured in war, that were trained in special schools to fight each other to the death. The gladiatorial games were over by the year 438 A.D. while the shows with hunts of wild beasts continued until 523.”

Covered tent lets you eat outdoors in all seasons and weather or indoors according to preference. ”

“I’m a Monti boy, a monticiano. I’ve been working in the neighborhood for many years. Now I live there too. My landmark are these: Urbana pasta, small, cheap street fooder of my friend Arturo. You eat well and pay even better. Urbana 47 is another must. From breakfast to after dinner. Trieste Pizza is the favorite place of my son Claudio, six years old. Barzilai is a tiny bistrot where you can eat and drink well. La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali: excellent. Cuoco e camicia is another place where you can eat very well. The others can be found below.”
