with seven rooms chocolate-box-tidy
and loving cared for Alberta”

Rione Monti is one of the most fascinating districts of Rome, strategically located in an area west of Roma-Termini railway station.
Full of streets and lanes where to walk along, it’s the first – and the oldest – district of Rome. There, you can find evidences of the Roman, mediaeval, Renaissance and Baroque era, a succession of styles covering 2500 years of history.
In ancient times, the higher part of the district was constituted by distinguished domüs, while the lower part – the “Suburba” (sub-urbe), characterized by council houses and workshops – had a bad reputation.
This is the birth place of Giulio Cesare; according to the tradition, Nerone came here – in disguise – to test the people’s mood and Messalina visited the area – incognito – in search of transgression.
Among the most interesting places of the area, you can find the Colosseum, the Domus Aurea, the Roman Forum, the Trajan’s market, the Baths of Titus, the remains of Aqua Claudia, San Pietro in Vincoli, with Michelangelo’s Moses, Borgia Stairs, Madonna dei Monti’s fountain, Santa Francesca Romana, the Scala Sancta, Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, Basilica of San Clemente, Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, some masterpieces of the Roman Baroque, such as the churches of Sant’Andrea al Quirinale and San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane.
Rione Monti is not only rich of history, it’s also considered one of the trendiest districts of Rome; the ancient “Subura”, today is full of artisan workshops, design shops, art galleries, typical restaurants and places where you can stop and taste a glass of wine. We tried a lot of them for you, to offer our best suggestions, both into and outside the district.
Nightlife is not as touristic as in Trastevere but it’s more genuine, you can know better the habits of the people of the area and of the inhabitants of the district.
Don’t forget to stop at the fountain in Piazza della Madonna dei Monti to plunge in the local atmosphere: children playing, old ladies relaxing with a glass of wine, youth meeting for an aperitif, politicians strolling…
Monti is the best district where to stay in Rome if you want a good balance among history, tradition and innovation and to observe the Capital from the Romans’ point of view.
