Sometimes I write a post on this blog and I am super pleased with what I have released out into the world. And it usually has absolutely nothing to do with the writing as it all revolves around the photos (sometimes photos can do all of the talking...right??). Welp, this is one of those times. Trastevere showed up for me. And funny enough, I felt like I didn't get any good shots while I was there! Take a glimpse into the neighborhood that we stayed in while in Rome. Rick Steves said it was the 'crusty' side of Rome.
I beg to differ.
Other than our trips to the Colosseum and the Vatican, we hung around our apartment in Trastevere. If you want to be away from the tourist crowds, stay here. While dining al fresco, all that can be heard up and down the street is the Italian language. It's where the real Italian people live. While you may feel like it's a little 'worn in' I found it to be absolutely charming. And the food choices were excellent! If you are visiting Rome, head on over across the Tiber to Trastevere, which literally means 'across the river'. And then go back again at night.
Pure Roman magic.
