Rome … Is waiting for us, on the other side!

Rome, Rome, Rome, it's been way too long. These are images from our last stay. We based ourselves in Trastevere and walked and walked and fell in love Monti

Trastevere is the last surviving bit of medieval Rome charms with its crumbling buildings scattered among trendy bars, cobbled lanes, the Basilica of Santa Maria, and even a foreign language cinema – but the $3.00 Peronis beers at Bar San Calisto might be the main thing calling Romans to this side of the river! If you’re visiting Rome for the first time, Trastevere is one of the best places to stay in Rome. Close to the centre, but with its own characteristics and away from the crowds of tourists (unless it’s August, in which case you won’t be able to escape them wherever you are in the city!).

When you visit Rome, do as the Romans do. To really feel like a local, take part in the post-dinner gelato walk. Especially in the summer, when the evenings are long and bright, there’s nothing better than burning off all those pizza calories by going for a walk – with some ice cream!
