Rome - Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo (Chapter)
This is the Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Rome 7 guidebook.

- Enjoying the splendours of one of Rome’s finest yet lesser-known museums, housed in the Palazzo; the highlight being its incredible Ancient Roman frescoes
- Enjoying a drink in a sun-dappled cafe in the bohemian yet chic neighbourhood of Monti
- restaurants & bars
- Having a night out in Pigneto, the iconic working class district immortalised by Pasolini
