The first Ward of Rome also hosts the largest quantity of Roman remains. The archaeological heritage is enormous, and merges with a genuine atmosphere, made up of steep streets and artisan shops, nightclubs and art galleries. To understand, this is where we find the Coliseum and Roman Forum, but also the Roman spirit most authentic and representative.
HISTORY: The name Monti comes from the fact that once this area included the hills Esquiline, Viminale, part of Quirinale and Celio. It is the oldest neighborhood of Rome, with evidence of Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and a succession of styles that covers 2500 years of history.
AMBIENCE: The same air of authenticity that is breathed in Trastevere, you can find here in Mont. And even stronger, because it still remains an area in the interior, less known, less traveled by tourists a part from its extraordinary artistic heritage. The possibility to fill your eyes with an amazing sunset at the Forum and then the stomach with a traditional dinner in a typical Roman trattoria is priceless.
PLACES: The Coliseum is the undisputed symbol of Rome: it is the skeleton of the largest Roman amphitheater in the world, built by the Flavian dynasty in the first century AD. The opening ceremony was magnificent, spectacular 100-day celebration of hunting, representations, fighting and sacrifices. The Coliseum was in fact very popular place of entertainment in ancient Rome and was the scene of great cruelty: exotic animals and gladiators fought and died for entertain the audience. In the Middle Ages became an enormous quarry for the extraction of materials used to construct important buildings in Rome. Recovered from the nineteenth century, in 2007 he was named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
The Roman Forum is the extraordinary remains of what was once the center of ancient Rome and to some extent the empire itself. Result of successive buildings, it in fact housed the public life of the city, and as the emperors were building a new one, also increased the number of participants in a socially shared. It was with the advent of Christianity that its structure was disrupted, and gradually abandoned. The recovery began in the eighteenth century and today you can see from an archaeological site unparalleled charm.
The Apian Hill Park and the Baths of Trajan has the remains of the famous Domus Aurea, the residence of the emperor Nero took after the fire of Rome. In line with his personality and excessive self-centered, complex was built in the exclusive and luxurious. Right here he built the famous statue of himself in the shoes of the sun god: the so-called giant, for its tremendous size, then gave the name Flavio Amphitheatre - the Coliseum - that stood in the valley below. On the death of the emperor, in an attempt to erase the signs of this bleak, were built on the same ground the Baths of Titus and Trajan. The park is a privileged place to discover an immense concentration of archaeological treasures and the history of Rome.
You could list fifty churches of historic and cultural district in the mountains. The advice is to walk, provided a good guide, and pay attention to places that hold treasures still in Rome. One of all, however, is the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano, the most important and ancient Basilica of the West. Next to the Palace Lutheran, and the majestic Piazza di Porta San Giovanni in front, with its red granite obelisk over 30 meters high, perhaps the largest in the world.
