A Broad Abroad: Rome – Trastevere
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.
