Marvelous remains of Emperor Trajan's Forum, including a library, shopping arcade, administrative offices and the triumphal column. After the Colosseum, this is maybe the largest still standing ancient structure in the Roman Forum (or better said - Forums). There is a museum inside the Market,...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
