Monti, Trastevere’s cooler brother


You still get the draped ivy, quaint 15th century apartments with shuttered lids and cobbled streets of Trastevere. But here, you also get a bespoke cultural hub of music, vintage clothing and beatnik bars. This is old Rome meets new at its best. And it’s not a tourist trap. Yet. Get of the metro blue line at ‘Cavour’ just south of Termini station and 5 minutes from the Colosseum.  I heard of this area from my previous Italian roommates, a group of mustached Beatles-crazy music and film aficionados who hung out there every weekend. Many who go there are alternative hipsters who ironically pay nice amounts for their shabby-chic style. I literally can’t keep up with the amount of impressive bars, vintage shops and eateries that are popping up, each looking like they came from design heaven. For more info and great things to do here search our keyword tab for ‘Monti’, or try the UI pages.
