Nice find.

Now if they can only find his fiddle. 😉

If they do, then Nero was our first time traveling Emperor!

Violins were not around until the mid-1500s. I find it disturbing that they will go ahead and build a hotel over it. No zoning laws I guess.

His "fiddle" was a lyre. :)

The difficulty with central Rome is that there's great archaeology underneath ALL of it.

I guess the city Planning Department has to make some very hard choices on what to build over.

The area including the Colosseum, the Forum, the Imperial palace on the Palatine, the Circus Maximus on the other side of it and Trajan's Market is already a huge archaeology park.
