We rode around this area and walked. There’s not much happening here but after visiting the crowded attractions, a quiet walk will surely revive you.

It's a nice place. Many people come here with their family or friends. But not too crowded. Just a good place to sit and have a nice day with.

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
