Located just a few steps from some of the oldest and most precious ruins in Rome, including the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, The Inn at the Roman Forum boasts charming views of the Campidoglio, Palatin Hill, Roman Forum, and Venice Square. It is represented by Small Luxury Hotels of the World and is the only luxury residence in Rome which actually houses Roman ruins inside it. At the entrance, a passageway leads you to a Cryptoporticus; an exquisite stone gallery with engravings that can be traced back to 2,000 years ago. The accommodations are carefully decorated in a modern style and are luxuriously furnished.

Between the Fori Imperiali and Colosseum , near the very old Church of Santi Quirico e Giulitta, with its unmistakable Romanesque campanile, The Inn At The Roman Forum is in a perfect spot for discovering the ancient wonders of Rome as well as the modern and elegant city of boutiques and shopping. From here you can start a fascinating walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali, right in front of the hotel, to see the history of the ancient city: Julius Caesar, Constantine, the Colosseum and Trajan's Column. In a monumental succession it is possible to see: the Forum of Caesar, the first after the Republican era; then Forum of Trajan, Forum of Augustus and Forum Transitorium (also called the Forum of Nerva). Near the Grillo hill are the Markets of Trajan, with their unique semicircular structure. To the right of the Altare della Patria rises Trajan's column, a masterpiece of Roman sculpture. From here Via dei Fori Imperiali starts: on the left the Forum of Augustus continues with the Forum Transitorium, unmistakable with its grandiose columns called the Colonnacce.
Directions to Hotel
All Intercity and Eurostar trains from major Italian cities (Milan, Naples, Venice and Florence) arrive and depart from Termini, Rome's main train station. From The Station are 5 minutes by metro (Cavour station) or five minutes by taxi. It is easy to get to The Inn At The Roman Forum by car. From the freeways, take the Grande Raccordo Anulare, exit at Salaria, if coming from the North, or Appia and Tuscolana if coming from the South. Then follow the signs for the center (centro) Colosseo - Piazza Venezia.
The Cryptoporticus, a structure formed by two galleries with archways and colonnade, was discovered and excavated in 1887. Since then, no comprehensive studies have been formulated on the monument and its function, and so it is considered one of the “treasures” of the underground Rome and remains still little-known at present.
