Rome Italy: A Walk through Trastevere

Colosseum

Rome is one of the quintessential cities everyone should visit at least once.  It’s full of history, mystery, and the most delicious food and wine in the world.  At every turn, there is a ruin of historic nature to explore. However, while seeing the major points of interest, one shouldn’t overlook other interesting aspects of a city, the neighborhoods, and people.  For me, one of Rome’s best neighborhoods is Trastevere just across the Tiber River. Its name means “across the river” and refers to its location on the west bank of the Tiber or Tevere in Italian.
