The fun and lively new hot spot in Rome is the Monti neighborhood. I just spent a couple of nights there exploring and enjoying restaurants -- all in the name of guidebook research. If you don't have enough money to take your date out to a nice restaurant or bar, no problema! Piazza della Madonna dei Monti is the impromptu neighborhood gathering point. A convenience store at the top of the square sells cheap bottles of beer and the gang's all here. Go out after dark in Rome...it feels safe and shows you a different face of a great city that embraces life with a special gusto.
