Monti - Roman Forum:
the quarter of Saint Peter

For a complete presentation, please visit the specific pages on the streets of the quarter:

Distinguished inhabitants of this quarter included St. Peter, emperor Nero, Michaelangelo, Bernini (the architect who changed Rome during the 17th century), and Enrico Fermi (Nobel Prize for contributing to discover nuclear energy). It necessarily has quite a personality.

"Monti" is one of the most ancient quarters in Rome, as there once stood Trajan's market, the merchants quarter, and emperor Nero's Domus Aurea.

The quarter is situated between the Coliseum (Roman Forum), Piazza Venezia (Capitol Hill), Via Nazionale and the St. Mary Major basilica (on top of the Esquiline hill), and finally the Quirinale Hill (with the urban palace of the Popes, presently of the President of the Republic).
The situation between several of Rome's Hills thus gives the name to this quarter ("Monti" in Italian means Mounts). It is endowed with beautiful churches, like St. Pietro in Vincoli, characteristic streets and piazzas. The quarter, very centrally located, has great character, and its people are very friendly. You find many art shops, craftsmen, cosy restaurants and cafees. There are many charming zones secluded from car traffic.
The quarter is ideal for the art and history connoisseurs, yet it is very enjoyable and also with a Bohemian, picturesque feel. Finally, in this uniquely varied district, in an old physics institute Enrico Fermi discovered the atom nucleus fragmentation, which won him the Noble prize. He and his colleagues were nicknamed "The Panisperna Street boys". You will find the full story in this page "I ragazzi di Via Panisperna" or Panisperna Boys.
