Rione Monti

The valley between the Esquiline Hill and the Celian Hill underscores the area's nickname Monti (Mounts)














Monti is the first of Rome's rioni (or districts) owes its name Monti to the fact that it incorporated the Esquiline, Viminal, part of the Quirinal and Caelian hills














Monti is the oldest district in Rome














There are Roman ruins and mediaeval, Renaissance and Baroque buildings in a succession of styles covering 2500 years of history














I walked in this amazing place, taking some B/W photos with my old point n shoot camera
