Why locals love it

Rione Monti is a trendy neighbourhood that attracts a young and creative crowd. Locals like to walk here in the afternoons and shop in alternative boutiques before heading out for aperitifs once the sun has gone down. From 8 pm onwards, especially on weekends, the square transforms into a vibrant meeting place for hip and stylish people.

Why you should visit it

Although it’s the most ancient neighbourhood in Rome, in the past few years it has regained its youth. Here you’ll find the best alternative boutiques and vintage shops, as well as many good restaurants, bars and takeaway joints. Lose yourself in the alleys during the day or come here at night for a drink with the locals.

Special tip

If you get hungry stop by Zia Rosetta (Via Urbana) and try a traditional Roman sandwich: a rosetta stuffed with delicious fresh ingredients.
