INFO ABOUT AREA:
The location is exceptional as you are actually close to all the classic sights of Rome. The Colosseum and Fori Imperiali are no more than an easy five minute walk. Moreover the "Cavour" underground (subway) station is approximately two hundred meters far.
In the immediate vicinity it's worth a moment to linger along the narrow lanes of the Suburra, the church of Santa Pudenziana and its Byzantine mosaic (this is the oldest church in Rome, it dates back to the third century A.D.; the tradition says that Saint Peter might have found shelter there during the Christian persecution), the church of Santa Prassede and obviously the magnificent and imposing Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore.
The perfect starting point to best enjoy the best of the eternal city!
The "Suburra" - the previous name of this district located on the sloped of the Quirinale and Viminale hills spreading as far as Esquilino hill - was a suburban neighbourhood of ill-fame, but where also new freedmen and patricians built their houses, surrounded by taverns, brothels, prostitutes, thieves, traders and some respectable people. The heart of Rome was like this. During the Emperor Vespasian time the Colosseum was built down the eastern part of the city, while on the south you could admire the Arch of Tito and the temple of Nettuno on the west.
Today the district of Suburra is called "Rione Monti", the first neighbourhood of the city, one of the few places where you can have a real, genuine breathing area.

.... (*) Aeneas was the son of Anchises and Venus. After the fall of Troy, he led a band of Trojan refugees to Italy and became the founder of Roman culture (although not of the city of Rome itself). He was the mythical progenitor of the Julian gens through his son Ascanius, or 'Iulus,' and Virgil made him the hero of his epic, the Aeneid.
In the Aeneid, Aeneas' most common epithet is 'pius,' and Virgil presents him as the exemplar of the Roman virtues of devotion to duty and reverence for the gods.
