We came across this nice statue by chance during our walk on the streets of the city. It is quite an imposing structure, even considering that it is so close to a big church. It is worth a look if you are in the area.

This is a small yet beautiful monument, located next to the gigantic San Giovanni basilica, hence it is further dwarfed by it.

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
