Monti is a neighbourhood just around the corner from the Colosseum. It is touristy, but hipster and elegant. This small central square is the gathering spot of people coming from all around the city. That is because Monti is cool: full of bars and its streets always crowded, even in wintertime. Monti is relaxing and funny, and the piazzetta is the perfect summary of this feeling: rich in history and art, discreet and very welcoming. I like coming there at the aperitivo time, buying something to drink in one of the simple bars and sitting on the steps. Most of time I come with friends, to relax after a workday.
