Rome's Monti neighborhood is a collection of art galleries and enoteche (wine bars) just to the east of the Colosseum. And after a lengthy phase of urban re-organization, it is a mecca for young tourists traveling to the Eternal City. Bordering the Roman Forum and the Esquiline district, it is also just a stone's throw away from the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore (with its unique Cosmatesque flooring) and from that of St. Peter in Chains, site of Michelangelo's glorious sculpture of Moses. Set between two main thoroughfares, Via Cavour and Via Nazionale, Monti is in part composed of Suburra, the ancient "Sub Urbe" quarter – i.e., under the city – the nether parts of which give out onto the boulevard passing the Colosseum. The neighborhood's uneven roads are paved with cobblestones (sanpietrini in Italian); at night, a stroll over them is a spectacle in itself. The entire zone revolve around the little piazza Madonna dei Monti, with its characteristic Catecumeni Fountain, designed by Giacomo della Porta. A network of small-time merchants and artisans have still managed to hang on to their businesses in Monti, thus lending to the scene a look of the antique, taking us back into the Rome of yesteryear. Typical gilders' shops and carpentry workshops, blacksmiths and junk dealers embellish these small streets, along with temporary vintage/consignment markets and art galleries (for instance, check out Galleria Fondaco).
Because it feels like a home from home as you live the city like its inhabitants do.
You are a stone's throw away from the main archeological and historical sites: the Colosseum and the Forum are just 5 minutes walk away, as are the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore and San Pietro in Vincoli (home to Michelangelo's sculpture Moses.
The neighborhood Rione Monti, where the flat is located, is one of the oldest and most characteristic of the city
Both Metro A and Metro B are very close.
