Located north of the Via dei Fori Imperiali, it is a short walk from the Colosseum and Foro Romano.
It’s name literally means “mountains” which will make sense as soon as you spend an afternoon walking up and down the steep hills throughout Monti.
There is a lot to see and do, but you’ll find that Monti is a neighborhood that draws its visitors back time and time again.
Monti is a residential neighborhood, so one of its main draws is the picturesque nature of the narrow streets.
Whether it’s the laundry hanging from the windows, or the older Italians carrying home their groceries, Monti welcomes the visitor with a glimpse into the lives of its locals.
Via del Boschetto, Via dei Serpenti, Via della Madonna dei Monti, and Via Panisperna are all particularly beautiful and worth a visit.
There is plenty to do in Monti but it is also a great neighborhood to spend some time not doing really anything at all.
You will find piazzas full of people enjoying a drink and chatting with each other as time just slips by.
The fountain in Piazza della Madonna dei Monti is particularly popular as a place to while away the time.
All you have to do is find a place and settle in for a great conversation or quality people watching.
If you find yourself wandering about, it never hurts to do a bit of shopping, and Monti has its fair share of retail appeal.
For a more commercial setting, head to Via Nazionale where you will find all the big names you find on Via del Corso.
A wide open street, Via Nazionale adds a sense of grandeur and elegance to your shopping experience, especially since you’ll find top designer names among the shops you pass.
