The site of the Colosseum is in fact a depression among the hills of Rome: the Palatine on its south-western side, the Velia on the western side, the last slopes of the Esquiline hill, also called Colle Oppio (now a park) on the northern side and the Celio on the Eastern side.
The Velia, however, has disappeared: during the thirties, the hill – which was in fact a ridge between the Colle Oppio and the Palatine – was razed to the ground in order to build the modern Via dei Fori Imperiali, the road that connects
Discussion among the experts is still open, though, because some have argued that 1) there is no substantial evidence of the presence of the statue near the amphitheatre; 2) the name Colosseum appears only from the XI century, when the statue had long disappeared.

The Es Hotel in Rome is up on the Esquiline Hill across the street from the southern flank of the magnificent Termini station--a quarter from which tourists normally wish to flee as soon as possible, even when they arrive by train.
At terrace level, these give magnificent views over the city and some of the surrounding countryside, for the Esquiline is one of the highest hills in the city.
Individual hotel rooms, of which there is a great variety, are arranged along double-banked corridors round a tall, rather narrow central court which is virtually open at its east end to prevent claustrophobia, and to open views to a small local park and a long disused theatre, now in the course of restoration.
