A Broad Abroad: Rome – Trastevere

Posted in A Broad Abroad, Fashion Files, Inspiration, Pomp Day-By-Day, Uncategorized by Miss Pomp on January 8, 2013

Our last stop on #HashtagEuro2012 was Rome. Lucky for us we met a lovely girl in Positano who had studied abroad in Rome for a few years, and was kind enough to shoot us an email with tips about her favorite spots in Rome. Let me tell you, suckers, having someone who actually lived in the place you’re going telling you where to eat and spend time makes all the difference in the world. I’m talking “We didn’t like it at all” to “It was one of our favorite stops” difference. We only had two full days in Rome, so we made our time count while we were there. Night one, after we arrived and checked in, we headed out on a 45 minute-ish walk through the city to Trastevere for a late dinner.  Inhabited since 700BC-ish, the area has maintained it’s charm and character amazingly well. Cobblestone streets and tiny restaurants tucked into nooks and crannies. You have no idea how fun this is to write, it’s like reliving it. But for free this time.

    Great pics! I love seeing your travel outfits. I’m completely terrible at packing for trips, so I make note of the types of things you wear. I’m trying to be better about not “over packing” and wear peices multiple times.

    I have to pack tonight…. I read some great tips today from another blogger.
    may the force be with me.

    Hey Jess! Thanks so much! Yeah, packing for this trip was a bit of a doozy, I definitely thought and re-thought the whole thing through a bunch of times. I actually have a couple of mood boards for packing, I’ll share them within the next week or so!

    Good luck with your packing and have a great trip!
