The quality of service for this bus company is poor. The maintenance of the listening devices is clearly not an obligation. My friend along with the passengers behind us did not have working stations and started jokingly giving our own explanations of the attraction. When...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
