Neighbourhood
“This neighborhood has had some interesting artists and literary people. It is very nice to take a walk during the day and resting during lunch in a nice typical roman restaurant or "tavernetta". Trastevere changes compeletly it's mood at night. Full of young people walking by and having a drink with friends. Quiet every night in the central piazza you may find some groups that play in the street. I suggest to go there by lunch and by night to see the difference. If you may, take a bicycle through the day. ”

“The Roman Forum was an ancient showpiece center, a grandiose district of marble-clad temples, beautiful basilicas and vibrant public spaces. Today, its impressive but badly labelled ruins, give some hint on how it was at the time. You just need to use a little bit of your imagination to picture it as it once was.”

Point of Interest
“Gianicolo is situated just outside the ancient city and is a great place to visit to get away from the bustle of Rome. Not to mention that the panorama from the top of the hill is breath-taking. Janiculum Hill, considered by many as the eighth hill of Rome, is a peaceful and refreshing attraction close to the city center. As you walk up its pathways, you'll enjoy superb views of the city. Janiculum became very popular due to the important historical role that it played in the defence of the city. Becoming the setting for the battle in which Garibaldi repelled an attack from French troops, its paths are full of sculptures of the heroes, including Giuseppe Garibaldi. ”

“The city of Rome is unique in many ways, historical ruins, grandiose chapels, amazing food, all wrapped up in the richness of Italian culture. Despite this, Rome is still a city and when you need a break from the bustling streets but can’t get away, we recommend you escape to the Botanical Garden in Trastevere. The garden has been located behind the Corsini Palace since 1883 and is taken care of by the Department of Environmental Biology of the Sapienza University of Rome. The unique thing about this serene space is that it is not only a botanical garden, by also an archeological area. Situated on the Septimius Severus Baths, the location has been characterized with the presence architectural discoveries of considerable historical and artistic interest.”
