Table of contents

It was an increasingly well-developed and well-fortified city, mirroring the rest of the Eastern empire. The strength of the East prompted any aggressors to turn their attention towards the West.

Constantine had weakened the West during his rule, other than favouring the East in development of infrastructure, but in economic governance too. He raised taxes in the West to bring them up to the level of those in the East to seem fair. This did not take into account the economic disparities between the two halves of the Empire, and the extra taxes on the West served to further cripple their economy, which had dwindled due to the constant pressures of war and low trade.

His economic policies were one of the reasons for the decline of the west and the sundering of the Empire. Rome was sacked by the Visigoths under King Alaric and no help came from the East. To those living in Constantinople, Rome was merely a symbol, a memory of a former time, not of any political of strategic importance. The highest ranking political official in residence was the bishop of Rome.

Many historians cite the actual fall of the Western Empire as AD. No Roman emperor would ever rule from that seat again. The Mediterranean and the Near East was just one part of a much larger, interconnected ancient world. Despite their advanced network of roads and bureaucratic mechanisms, word simply could not travel fast enough for the Empire to grow and change as a whole. When Constantine decided to move the capital to the old city of Byzantium — a strategic and lucrative position — to found Constantinople, the western parts of the Empire were the furthest from the economic stability and defensive power of the leaders of Rome; easy picking for the barbarians beyond the borders.

Its downfall followed just a few centuries later; the sheer size of it a contibuting factor to its collapse.

The splitting of the Empire and the loss of the West was the end of what many see as Ancient Rome, as the Eastern Empire developed the old traditions were left behind and a new entity emerged, the Byzantine Empire — a nation that would last another years. I guess what I'm saying is that I see a concentration of hotels being located around the Vatican City west of Tiber river and around the east side of the Tiber River Colisseum, Trevi Fountain , etc.

I'm trying to decide which location would be better to stay at.

Are either of them fine, and should I just look for the best rate, or should I favor one side of the river Tiber, or the other? Either side will work. Personally I think the east side is closer to the tourist activities and has more activity in the evening. Although the Vatican area has many hotels the area is largely apartments.

Thank Tony. I realize that the bus service in Rome provides excellent coverage, and I should be able to get a bus to take me anywhere quite easily.

I guess I was asking if one area favors walking, more so than the other. East of the Tiber is better for walking.

However, if you don't mind using the bus, both are fine, and there are often bargains east of the Tiber. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
