Monti is the name of one of the most ancient area of Rome. The name literally means mountains in Italian and comes from the fact that the Esquiline and the Viminal Hills, and parts of the Quirinal and the Caelian Hills belonged to this rione.The district is very large and very urbanistically composite, ranging from areas of intensive urbanization (such as that between the Interior and the Quirinal, with an axis of Via Nazionale, and all the buildings in Via Cavour) and the most recent areas as those between the Esquiline and Celio, on Via Amba Aradam).
Particularly appreciated from this point of view, and increasingly popular in recent years, is the area between Via Nazionale and Via Cavour (Via del Boschetto, Via dei Serpenti, Via Baccina and Via Panisperna ),the modesty of dwelling houses , the narrow streets, artisan shops, small shops seem to retain the characteristics of nineteenth-century Rome. The area, packed with restaurants, bars and many restaurants, gravitates on the square of the Madonna dei Monti, near of the church, which is still a gathering place for local residents and occasional visitors.
Thanks to its position, Monti is full of archaeological sites such as the Colisseum, the Trajan Forum, Nero's Domus Aurea, partof the Roman Forum and markets of Trajan.
Also, it's located very close to the Metro station Cavour (the one that precedes Termini Station (the main Metro and train station).
