Overview
More
The Markets of Trajan are an archaeological complex of uniqueness in Rome, perhaps even worldwide. They represent an area that has experienced the evolution of the city from the imperial age to today; an area that has been constantly recycled and transformed. The markets once the strategic administrative centre of the Imperial Forums, successively became a noble residence, a military fortress, a prestigious convent and a barracks... a continuous evolution.

This is the area which is just near Emmanele which has some older low lying ruins and the Trejan Market ruins also. It is a couple of blocks long, lots of photo ops. There is a museum with a cover price which has many displays...More

Not knowing much about the site before going in, I was pleasantly surprised. From the street it looks like a small exhibition, but once you get in, the route takes you through the several floors and forums that the Traiano site has to show you....More

It is part of Trajan's Market and there are many shops around the structures in the past. Detailed explanations are available by joining the guided tour despite the entrance fee on the high side.

This covers a large area and many stairs. I would not recommend for anyone with a stroller or wheelchair. There’s objects to view inside on two levels and outside on 3-4 levels. It’s a maze to get to them all. A map would be useful....More

Worth a visit anyway but, combined with the temporary exhibition "Trajan. Building the Empire, creating Europe", it's an awesome experience.

It's an incredible site. I went by my own and took time to really see everything I could inside, and that took me about 2-3 hours so it's not that time demanding. I was surprised that it was only me and just a couple more...More

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
