Top 20 Monti, Rome vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
It's a truth universally acknowledged that in every city, there is a district just waiting to be described as expressing the spirit of the old Soho. In Rome, Monti is that place, and the connection is a fair one - although what Monti lacks in advertising agencies and mustachioed tech bros, it makes up for in creative enclaves, smoky bars and delicious places to eat. Nestled right in the heart of the city, edged up by Trajan's market to the west, and the Quirinale to the north, the long thin streets are packed with art galleries, vintage shops, international boutiques and unusual menus. This is where young Romans are flocking to live, and where creative innovation can be felt in a city that sometimes feels reserved for tourists seeking the old. Head to the Piazza della Madonna dei Monti, grab a beer and sit watching the exuberant flirting round the fountain. For dinner, try Urbana 47 for new dishes, and Taverna La Romana for traditional pasta, before getting a late night cocktail at one of the two Black Market bars.
