Colosseo

As long as the Colosseum stands, Rome will stand; if the Colosseum falls, Rome will fall; when Rome falls, the whole world will fall. “someone said. Your bags instead will not fall , because we will keep them with care in our luggage storage.

The Colosseum , also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, is located in the heart of the Capital and is one of its most important tourist attractions.

The huge amount of visitors places it second on the podium of the most visited archaeological sites of the world , and it’s not just luck if it’s considered one of the seven wonders of the world.

Nowadays the games and celebrations are gone. No more gladiators and thumbs down, no lions, and – thankfully ! – no public executions either.

Still standing remains the jewel of engineering construction which is the Amphitheatre.

Time has been mostly clement, and when not (the Colosseum was in fact the victim of an earthquake in 1349, which severely damaged part of the structure), a masterful restoration took over in the contemporary era in the mid nineteenth century, made by Raffaele Stern and later by Giuseppe Valadier.

Its name is said to come from a huge statue, the Colossus of Nero, placed near the Amphitheatre.
After the death of Nero, the statue depicting the emperor was modified and remodeled, and removed from its original location and replaced by the Temple of Venus and Roma.

“Where are we, at the Coliseum?” Romans used to say, in a house with the doors open too often, just as the Flavian Amphitheater, which has indeed no doors or windows.
The same goes with Bibbo Luggage Storage, our doors are open and waiting for you.
