On a very busy day at the Vatican, our tour guide Olivia Ercoli was able to steer us through the crowds to cooler, quieter spots and impart her incredible knowledge with great clarity and lovely humor. Highly recommended.

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
