Attractions near the Westin Excelsior Rome
An enduring symbol of Roman Imperialism
When it comes to great historical architecture, the Colosseum is right up there with the best of them. This enormous stone-tiered amphitheatre is the largest in the world and when it was constructed in 70AD it could hold over 50,000 spectators. City residents would gather to watch gladiator fights, mythological dramas, mock sea-battles and even executions.
This spectacular work of Roman architecture is located in the heart of Rome and is one of the city's most frequently visited monuments. Although the Colosseum remains partly in ruins, it is an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome and a must-see attraction during your visit. Guided tours are available in English and Italian.
Beauty and history collide at the Basilica San Clemente
This fascinating medieval basilica retains the imprint of over 2000 years of history; a 12th-Century basilica built on a 4th-Century church, which was constructed on a 2nd-Century pagan temple. Travel back in time as you descend into the basement to discover the mostly-untouched 4th-Century church complete with preserved 9th-Century frescos. Venturing further down grants you a view of the 2nd-Century cave-like Mithraic pagan temple.
One of most decorated churches in Rome, the upper church of the Basilica San Clemente is magnificent, with superb mosaics and Renaissance frescoes adorning the chapel of St Catherine.
