The B&B Urbi et Orbi Roma is situated in one of the central parts of Rome, right beside the Basilica of St. John the Lateran. The cathedral of the pope in his capacity as bishop of Rome was built around 320 A.D. by Constantine the Great and is known as the “mother of all churches”. Our bed & breakfast sits between the magnificent baptistery (Battistero di San Giovanni in Laterano) and the old city gate Porta Metronia, in front of the ancient Mura Aureliane (Aurelian Walls), built by emperor Marcus Aurelius between 270 and 273 A.D. to protect the capital of the Roman Empire from onslaughts of Germanic tribes.
Other sights of interest to the art lover or tourist that can be reached easily: Terme di Caracalla (Baths of Caracalla), Colosseo (Colloseum), Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus), Villa Celimontana, Colle Celio (Caelian hill, one of the seven Roman hills) with all its hidden beauty, the ancient Roman road via Appia Antica and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.
