Red Haute Rome

Charming Streets in Monti
A long long time ago, Julius Caesar walked the streets of Monti, a district in Rome that is situated next to the Forum and the Colosseum.  Caesar, along with other politicians and gladiators rubbed elbows with the town's ladies of the night when Monti was the city's very own Red-Light district.  Today this neighborhood is hot once again, but with sophisticated people, chic shops, traditional Italian bakeries and overflowing wine bars. See what the new and improved Monti offers up to the visitors of the great city of Rome.

Dining Al Fresco in Monti
Piazza della Modonna dei Moni
When planning your trip to this trendy neighborhood, you will want to head to a few of the area's best landmarks.  The stunning Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore sparkles with a gold ceiling, 5th century mosaics and some impressive biblical wonders.  Taste the Italian treat gelato at Gelateria Fatamorgana, a very creative storefront that offers all-natural treats in some traditional as well as rather adventurous flavors.  Sit and people watch in the Piazza della Modonna dei Moni or dine al fresco at one the the delicious cafes that line the cobblestone streets.  Shop for unique finds at any of the many boutiques or visit San Pietro in Vincoli where you can visit the tomb designed by Michelangelo for Pope Julies II and the very famous Moses statue.  This area of Rome may have once been a bit seedy in nature, but today it shows off its glamour and charming personality to all that are lucky enough to walk through its spectacular streets.
