Not far from the Colosseum you'll find the hip quarter of Monti, which hosts a fantastic "urban market" every weekend – held in the conference hall of Grand Hotel Palatino. Founded in 2009, the market is a blend of contemporary creativity and vintage fashion: expect to find everything from handicrafts from cutting-edge designers to retro clothing, furniture and homeware items. The colourful and diverse array of trinkets and fashion on sale makes Mercato Monti an ideal place for a weekend wander, and the perfect excuse to explore the other independent stores and galleries dotted around the rest of the area's small streets.
• Via Leonina, mercatomonti.com. Every weekend 10am-8pm
The ambitious yet somewhat obscure Norweigan-American artist Hendrik Christian Andersen moved to Rome at the end of the 19th century where he lived for over 40 years. When he died he left all his works to the Italian state, and his studio home – an art-nouveau villa between the river and via Flaminia – was eventually converted into a museum where some 200 sculptures, 200 paintings and 300 graphic works are now displayed. With an interest in urban planning and architecture, much of Andersen's work is inspired by the idea of a great "world city", an intriguing concept to explore in the context of a visit to Rome itself.
• Via Pasquale Stanislao Mancini, 20, museoandersen.beniculturali.it
Open Tues-Fri 9.30am-6pm, Sat-Sun 9.30am-7pm
