    CiaoItalia is located in the Monti district, one of the oldest neighbourhoods ofthe city, located between the Viminale and the Esquilino, two of the sevenhills on which Rome was built. Commonly known as Suburra two thousand yearsago, it was one of the most lively and popular districts of the city. JuliusCeasar used to live in this area before moving to a palace located in thecentre. Since then, many centuries have gone by and many changes have takenplace in this area as in the rest of the city. Nowadays the districts maintainsthe aspect acquired between the 17° and 19° century, consisting of narrowstreets, three or four floor buildings, a small square with no access to carsand a beautiful central fountain. Above all, Monti district maintains the samecharm and atmosphere which disappeared in other areas in Rome: there are bars,restaurants and cafès for those who work and for tourists, but also small fruitshops or groceries, artisans workshops, furniture and design shops, artgalleries and bookstores.
