We crossed the Tiber to reach Trastevere. This part of Rome comes highly recommended for those seeking gourmet food and active night life. We chose to visit by day to find architectural gems and quiet streets.
Drawn into the community by strong roof lines and eye catching chimneys we made our way into the heart of Trastevere.
An ancient church hidden among palazzos was closed off to the public.
Every day life continues… laundry drying on a line suspended high above the street.
Restaurants line the streets, a street musician helped us slow down our pace and listen for a while before we continued our exploration.
The late September afternoon sun illuminated the plants above street level, guiding the way deeper into Trastevere.At the end of the street, just before I turned the corner I looked back and zoomed in to capture the Madonella. Instead I captured the seniora taking a smoke break at the ope window.
Thanks for joining me today for my walk down memory lane, recalling one of the best places we visited in Rome during our short stay in late September 2013.
