The Hotel is located inside the River Sile Nature Park just a few kilometres from Treviso and Venice.  The name of the Hotel is taken from its very siting, in the immediate vicinity of the Claudian Augustean way which was named after Roman Emperor Claudius (41-54 AD). According to epigraphic sources (two milestones unearthed in Rablà and Cesiomaggiore), Claudius had this important arterial road built in 46 AD following a layout originally designed by his father Druso at the time of his military offensives against Norico (present-day Austria) in 16-13 BC.  The hotel has 32 rooms, all very spacious, which have been designed with both couples and families with children in mind. The park, the ample parking facilities, and the fact you can reach Venice and Treviso so easily will all contribute to making your stay in Veneto extremely enjoyable.
