We were in Rome for business, and were not sure if we would have time for a side trip, but really wanted to check out the Amalfi Coast as a taste for a longer future trip. When we realized that we would have a full day free, we contacted Italy Hotline--to make arrangements for the next day! They asked us... More

Ally is just the best! I wanted to propose to my girlfriend - now happily engaged fiancée - in a fun and original way, though personal and romantic... I wrote a song and Ally helped me up setting up all the conditions for delivering it. Right from the first email I could feel that she was experienced and that not... More

Ally worked with us throughout our week in Italy. Her communication was flawless--all details were communicated and documented well in advance and her recommendations for activities booked thru (and not thru) Italy Hotline were all on point. Our tour guide in Venice--David--was absolutely incredible. Highest marks for him, Ally, and Italy Hotline! B&N

We did 2 days in Rome, one with Donatella, and the other with Giusy. They were both amazing! We were able to see so much more than we would have on our own and it took the stress out of finding where to go. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable and flexible with what we wanted to do. They were both... More

My family recently returned from a 12 day vacation to Italy. We visited Venice, Florence, and Rome taking 2 tours in each city, and booked our hotels, transfers and train tickets with Ally at Italy Hotline. First off our vacation was amazing! Everything went exactly as planned, transfers were smooth and on time, train tickets were convenient, hotels lovely and... More

We got Daniella at Pisa , she was very friendly and knowledgeable and at Florence we were greeted by Lisa. Lisa... More

Last month, for the first time ever, I rented a villa in Tuscany (villa Il Cerretaccio, outstanding!) for our large family of 15 persons, including 5 children as young as 18 months. In setting up the trip, I used Italy Hotline Custom and Gourmet Tours to set up side trips to Rome and to Florence. They did an excellent job... More

I first used Italy Hotline Tours in 2011, taking the Full Day Ancient City tour (which they happily allowed me to customize to my wants) as well as taking the Ostia Antica tour. Their guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. On this years trip (May 2014) we did the Stroll Like a Roman Tour with Grazia. She is such a... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
