The Monti rione, finding “la dolce vita”

To mingle with the Romans, head to the Mont district, one of the city's trendy and authentic hipster hangouts.

Located in the Municipio I, between Piazza della Repubblica, Roma Termini railway station and the Coliseum, this rione ("district") is in fashion and quickly becoming gentrified. The Monti ("mountains") owes its name to its typography, stretched out over several Roman hills (the Esquiline, Viminal, as well as parts of the Quirinal and Caelian).
After a long period of urban transformation, this picturesque district has developed its charm around the small Piazza della Madonna dei Monti and along the cobblestone streets of Boschetto and Panisperna.
There you will meet regulars with bohemian and artistic souls, walkers and devotees of the neighbourhood, ideal for roaming around and having a drink at the end of the day. Between art galleries and wine bars, alternative shops, slow food restaurants and artisans from last century, get carried away by the tranquillity of the surroundings and taste the sweet life so dear to the Romans.
