Though its name means “mountains,” Monti is more like an island rising out of Rome’s center. Invisible walls seem to separate this neighborhood from the adjacent tourist traps that border its artsy and bohemian population. In Monti, unmoneyed intelligentsia argue politics in smoky dens, vintage clothes come from London rather than Milan, and old-time craftspeople ply their trades in the streets. Monti is underground Rome, hidden in plain sight.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
