Just up from the Coloseum, this square has a few bars surrounding it. Locals sit, chat and meet up here and it has a great atmosphere. Lovely little spot.

One of the best fountains in Rome where you can have aperitivo outside...sitting on the fountain stairs. Lively, surrounded by cosy bars and restaurants...really a must-see.

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
