Where we are: RIONE MONTI
Casa Grifone is located in the historic and archeological center of Rome walking distance to the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Palatine, Arch of Constantine, Via Sacra, Trajan's Market. Because of this excellent location you will breath the "Romanity" in a finely decorated brownstone, comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. All this in a week
The Colosseum may be one of Rome's main tourist attractions, but wander up the slight inclined away from the famous amphitheater and you will find endless gems of architecture, craft, fashion, and restaurants tucked away in the narrow streets and quiet corners. Formerly the citys seedy underbelly - where prostitutes and outlaws took refuge until as recently as the 1940's
Strolling the cobblestone streets, you are likely to hear from the designer's sewing machine or the hammer to the jeweler's shop. Aside from the above, it is obvious that the district of Monti has a long and troubled history.
The district is located on a hill area and can be divided into a lower area (called Suburra). In the later centuries, the district became an area of the city: Rome city center moved to Campo Marzio and the other side of the river and the mountains From the XIX century and after the works of the fascist age, the district has lived a reborn.
Signs of this history are present in the district planning: between the Interior Ministry and Santa Maria Maggiore and a maze of small streets and alleys in the lower area, which was uninhabited many decades ago looks like a village-in-the-city nowadays.
