Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at

Sophie's AMAZING tour was USD$135/person (including PayPal fees). We had a very small group of 4 but I don't think she ever has more than 6. It was worth every cent, she is fabulous!!!
