I realized that I never did a blog post showing you where I stayed while visiting Rome, Italy. We were lucky enough to be given an apartment in the small town of Trastevere, which is on the west bank of the Tiber river, and south of Vatican City. Its name comes from the Latin trans Tiberim, meaning literally “beyond the Tiber” (Wikipedia). Apparently, the town has a logo – who knew?
We stayed in the apartments located at Via Ippolito Nievo 12 – I could never find out the actual name. Here are some pictures of our shared room for 8 girls (with only 1 usable shower mind you):
Besides the fact I got to live with such great people, my favorite part about the experience was that we had coffee just at our footsteps. Practically everyday we visited the Cafe downstairs and around the corner. Briana asked one day what the name of it was (since the sign translated to “New Management”) and they said it did not have a name, just call it “Bar”. At Bar, we had the 3 best servers: Luca, Antonio, and Giuseppe – which translates to Lucas, Tony, and Joseph. We meant to get a picture with them before we left, but were unsuccessful. I guess that is a reason to go back though!
Ciao for now,
