THE MONTI DISTRICT
Ciao Italia is located in the Monti district, one of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city, located between the Viminale and the Esquilino, two of the seven hills on which Rome was built. Commonly known as Suburra two thousand years ago, it was one of the most lively and popular districts of the city. Julius Ceasar used to live in this area before moving to a palace located in the centre.
Since then, many centuries have gone by and many changes have taken place in this area as in the rest of the city. Nowadays the districts maintains the aspect acquired between the 17° and 19° century, consisting of narrow streets, three or four floor buildings, a small square with no access to cars and a beautiful central fountain.
Above all, Monti district maintains the same charm and atmosphere which disappeared in other areas in Rome: there are bars, restaurants and cafès for those who work and for tourists, but also small fruit shops or groceries, artisans workshops, furniture and design shops, art galleries and bookstores.
