– Basilica of Saint Mary Major
The beautiful Basilica of Saint Mary Major is just a stone’s throw from the hotel. This is the only basilica amongst the Major Roman Basilicas to have preserved many of its original structures and features, although several have been enriched with successive add-ons and modifications. Some of the basilica’s interior unique features include the mosaics of the central nave and of the Arch of Triumph of the fifth century, the “cosmatesque” floor; the gilded wooden boxed ceiling made by Giuliano San Gallo and several chapels (from the Borghese to the Sistine, from the Sforza to the Cesis, and from that of the Crucifix to the almost faded Chapel of San Michael.
– Basilica of Saint John in Lateran
At only 800 metres, we find the Basilica of Saint John in Lateran, or Rome Cathedral as it is often referred to. This is the first of the four Major Papal Basilicas and the oldest and most important basilica in the West. Because of this, it is called the “arcibasilica”; and it also holds the honorary title of ‘Omnium Urbis et Orbis Ecclesiarum Mater et Caput’, or ‘Mother and the head of all of the churches of the city and the world’.
– Scala Santa (Holy Stairs)
These most celebrated and visited sacred stairs are a pilgrimage destination for Catholics. They are located in the centre of Rome in the immediate vicinity of the Basilica of Saint John in Lateran. The Holy Stairs form a part of a complex called ‘Pontifical Sanctuary of the Holy Stairs’ (Pontificio Santuario della Scala Santa). Medieval legends claim that St. Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine the Great, brought the Holy Stairs, which Jesus is said to have ascended, from Jerusalem to Rome circa 326 AD.
The Colosseum is just 1,200 metres away or approximately 10 minutes on foot from Hotel Oriente. Referred to as the ‘Anphitheatrum Flavlum” (Amphitheater Flavio) by the Ancient Romans, the Colosseum is the most famous and impressive monument of Ancient Rome, as well as the world’s largest amphitheatre. Its name certainly reflects the large size of the building, but was derived from the presence of the colossal Nerone bronze statue nearby. In 1990, the Colosseum, along with all the historic center of Rome, as well as the extraterritorial zones of the Vatican in Italy and the Basilica of St. Paul Outside The Walls, all became listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. In 2007, it was also included as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
– Termini Train Station
Just 900 metres away is Rome Termini Station, the main railway station in the city of Rome, the largest in Italy and the fifth largest in Europe based on passenger traffic. It is the only train station in the historic centre of the city, located at Piazza dei Cinquecento, and takes its name from the nearby Diocletian Baths.
