      Trastevere - the perfect location

      July 30, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

      After much research, I decided to stay in an area called Trastevere because it was within walking distance to Vatican City and the Colosseum area. This has turned out to be such a fun area in the few hours we have ventured out. The AirBnB is in an awesome location and there are side streets with restaurants, bars, wine stores, and shops lining the streets. We found a local pizza and pasta place and everything we had was delicious, especially Sydney’s dish, which was a lemon linguine with goat and ricotta cheese. It’s like nothing we had ever tasted before. Afterwards we made our way to the Ponte Garibaldi to catch the sunset and saw there was a street market just below us along the Tiber River. We tried to make it to the Mouth of Truth, but it was already closed. We caught some musicians who had drawn an audience in one of the piazzas and roamed through the busting streets filled with all sorts of people.Read more

      Last dinner and last café in Roma

      July 31, 2022 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 82 °F

      As we were walking back to the AirBnB we passed a place called Pasta e Vino Osteria with a woman rolling out pasta dough to make different kinds of ravioli, linguine, and tortellini. I could have watched for hours. We decided that this had to be the place to eat dinner after the sunset. This place was hopping and was the only restaurant we passed with a line, so we figured we had hit the jackpot. Everything was so fresh and delicious and the manager who was also a sommelier suggested all the dishes we needed to try. Definitely our best meal in Rome! 🍝

      The next morning, I had a few places I wanted to visit before our flight back home. I had yet to have a morning cappuccino at a street side café, so I went to the San Cosimato Market that I had wanted to check out, and found Il Siciliano where I grabbed a cappuccino and may have interrupted a Mafia meeting, LOL! I sat around taking in the quiet streets and watching the market get set up. I still had time to get to the Jewish Ghetto to get some crostata, a cherry and ricotta breakfast treat that I had heard so much about at the Pasticceria Boccione. Along the way, I passed more churches so I had to pop inside. It's always interesting to see what these churches have inside.

      Taking my last stroll back to Trastevere, crossing over the Tiber River, I am in awe of how this area changes from the night time with all the bustling crowds and tables set up in the streets, to just a few people on the street; most sweeping up last nights crumbs to prepare for the day.

      Rome day 1

      April 24, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

      I decided to head out, towards the Trevi Fountain, which is a 30 minute walk. I'm not sure if that accounts for the huge amounts of tourists!

      I was getting hungry and stopping for a gelato--dark chocolate and hazelnut.

      I found the crowded heart of Trastevere and kept found. I decided to stop at Campo dei Fiori. It was full of vendors and I looked for a pashmina made in Italy, but they are all from Nepal.

      My feet were hurting and I ended up stopping for a spritz on the piazza. No free snacks, so I ordered some olives, too. After a while, it started to look rain, and I did not have my umbrella.

      I stopped at a mini-mart for wine and food. The food ended up being cheese and prosciutto. It was raining lightly when I arrived home. I enjoyed the "picnic" on the balcony. I ended up going to bed really early!

      Piazza Navona + Saint Ignazio Church

      May 18, 2022 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

      We went to this Piazza and then got pizza and ate it next to the fountain. This church had a dome painted like a dome but it was actually a flat ceiling painted to look like a dome. Don’t mind the odd angles- everything was quite tall so I couldn’t reach for a nicer frontal view.Read more

    • Day 120


      November 20, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

      Rom in drei Tagen. Sicherlich darf man nicht den Anspruch haben, alles zu sehen. Das wollen und können wir auch auf keinen Fall. Was wir uns während der drei Tage anschauen, ist im Zeitraffer das, was wohl auch die meisten Besucher in Rom interessiert: Das ursprüngliche Viertel Trastevere, das Kolusseum, die Galleria Nazionale del Arte moderna, MAXXI – Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolot (das Gebäude - fantastische Architektur von Zaha Hadid), das Pantheon (sooo beeindruckend und fast 2000 Jahre alt), das Forum Romanum (sehr weitläufig 😅), der Trevi Brunnen, die Spanische Treppe (zu gehyped) und natürlich der Petersplatz. Rom hat gewiss noch viel mehr zu bieten. Wir belassen es bei diesen Eindrücken und fahren weiter gen Norden.Read more

      Stumbling Stones of Rome

      September 6, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

      One thing I was on the look out for while walking the Trastevere district was the Stolpersteine, German for “stumbling stones”. These are brass-plated cobblestones inscribed with the name of a Holocaust victim and the details of their death. They mark the specific place where the victim lived or worked before being forced from their home and sent to extermination camps.

      There are more than 200 of these mini memorial plaques in Rome and more than 30000 around Europe. They are part of a larger project by German artist Gunter Demnig who created the project in hopes that those that stumbled across them would take a moment to pause, look down in respect and reflect on those dark years.

      They certainly made us once again be thankful for the lives we have. It is so far out of our imagination that things like the Holocaust could actually happen, that people could be so strong in their beliefs that they would think their actions were the right actions, that trying to wipe out a whole race of people was acceptable. So hard to comprehend and so sad to be standing in the spot where that happened.

      Quartiere Trastevere 🌃🍝🎶

      September 30, 2023 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

      Por fin llega uno de mis momentos más esperados: ir al supermercado 😂

      Elijo el Esselunga más próximo, ya que tengo buen recuerdo de las últimas veces en Italia y acabo comprando más cosas de las que necesito pero es imposible no llevarme tantas cosas que no voy a encontrar fuera de Italia 😆

      Esta noche voy a pasear al barrio de Trastevere, zona más bohemia de la ciudad, conocida por sus colores, restaurantes y ambiente nocturno 🌛 lo que más me impresiona sin embargo, no son las muchas luces, sino la cantidad de personas tocando instrumentos y cantando que hay en cada esquina 🎙️🎺🎶

      Realmente se nota mucho que es sábado noche por lo llenas que están las calles, en las que a veces cuesta andar. Paseo por las calles y plazas principales aunque no consigo ir a ninguno de los restaurantes que tenía en mi lista porque están completamente llenos 🙉

      Esto me hace alejarme de las calles más transitadas y encontrar un pequeño restaurante, perfecto para una cena tranquila (y un poco picante) mientras hablo con Violeta 🍝🍺🤌🏼

      Durch die Gassen von Trastevere

      November 11, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

      Das Viertel Trastevere stand auf meinem Plan, da ich von Bildern der Gassen in diesem Stadtteil sehr begeistert war. Live war es zum Glück ähnlich! Durch verschiedenste Gassen auf dem Weg zu unserem Hauptziel in Trastevere konnten wir die Eindrücke und den Charme des Viertels aufsaugen. Trastevere gilt als das ursprünglichste und authentischste Viertel der Stadt. Das inzwischen trendige Viertel Trastevere war vor Jahrhunderten die Heimat der Arbeiterklasse. Bekannt ist die Gegend für ihre traditionellen und innovativen Trattorias, Craft-Bier-Bars, Kunsthandwerksläden, eher einfachen B&Bs und Budget-Hotels.Read more

    • Day 6

      5. Tag Rom

      November 26, 2023 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 8 °C

      Es wurde trotz Kälte über einen Flohmarkt zur berühmten spanischen Treppe geradelt. Naja, in der Sonne ist es immer noch warm genug für einen Capu im Freien.

      Von der Spanischen Treppe ging es weiter zu Fuß zur Villa Borghese und den umliegenden Park.

      Allerdings als es dunkel wurde, wurde es auch Winter. Es waren noch gefühlt 6-7 Grad, was aber anscheinend den Römer nicht weiter stört. Denn es gab um die Ecke vom Apartment wieder Live Musik und in der Bar saßen alle draußen, wie bei 30 Grad. Da fällt mir einfach nur Asterix ein."Die spinnen die Römer "!

      Rome Day 1

      December 3, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

      Our journey from Perugia to Rome went smoothly without any incident, and this is our last and final public transport transfer. We did not trust ourselves with the public transport to the airport so we've booked a private transfer recommended by a friend who lives in Rome. Relieved we be to complete all these bus, train and luggage transfers. It was a total of 24 accommodation transfers over 5 countries in 13 weeks.

      We went to very busy flea market in Trastevere, Rome where our accommodation is. There were miles of trestle tables piled high with clothes from €2- €60 per item. It was so busy, even Ruby could not find anything to buy. Less than halfway through, we abandoned market in search for lunch. We then retreated from the Sunday crowds into Basilica Santa Maria Trastevere.

      Distance walked 8km
