Small in size but big on charm, Monti is one of Rome’s oldest residential neighbourhoods. This tiny quartiere, once a notorious red light district, is now an oasis of independent bars, artisanal boutiques and alluring eateries. Its strategic location, tantalisingly close to the Colosseum, makes it a great place to stay while keeping the majority of the tourist throngs at bay.
