Trastevere: the most picturesque neighborhood in Rome
Considered one of the most colorful areas in Rome, this neighborhood is my favorite. Narrow and cobblestone streets, ochre‑colored buildings, centuries‑old piazzas, lively bars, trendy restaurants with outdoor seats and ivy plants.
You can find lots of lovely coffee bar and enjoy a cup of cappuccino or an aperitif outside with the sun kissing your face. There a lots of picturesque trattorias where you can grab some food after a long day of strolling and shooting. Roman food is amazing here and very authentic, the best in the city!
This is an example of the narrow cobblestone street, very nice, isn’t it?
This Roman temple is one of the most impressive building in the center of Rome. Dated around the second century AD, it testifies the superiority of Roman building techniques. You can take a good photo if you capture the Pantheon and the fountain, too.
Trevi fountain is the most beautiful and largest fountain in Rome. Its name derives from Tre Vie (three ways) since the fountain was the meeting point of three streets. You can throw a coin in the fountain, it is very popular amoung the tourists.
Absolutely the icon of Rome, with its 2000 years of history this amphitheatre is the greatest attraction of the city, along with the Vatican City.
The Roman Forum is the heart of Ancient Rome and nowadays a walk around it is a must, especially at dawn or at sunset.
La Scalinata – Piazza di Spagna
Piazza di Spagna is located at the bottom of the Spanish Steps and it’s one of the most famous square in Rome. It owes its name to the Palazzo di Spagna, seat of the Embassy of Spain. The Spanish steps is a 135-step staircase dated back to the 18th century.
