Interaction with Guests
I live in the same street so I will be happy to help you have a wonderful stay !
While Rome entices with its extraordinary monuments, Trastevere, one of its many distinct neighborhoods, captures the traveler's heart. Trastevere, which translates literally to "across the Tiber," was once considered the outskirts of Rome. Allowed to develop its own flavor and now part of the historic centre, it's the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans.
Often described as Bohemian, homes bedecked with flower boxes and clinging ivy intertwine with coffee bars, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Buildings in terracotta, maize, and wine cast a glow, like a daylong sunset. From the cobblestone streets to the overhanging laundry lines, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step.
The most popular gathering place in the area is Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere. Dating back to the 3rd century, the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere is the oldest in the city. Take note that there are no less than 80 other churches named for her in Rome. Visitors come to view the gleaming mosaics by Pietro Cavallini
In the late afternoon, it's common to take a passeggiata or evening walk. Arched doorways, climbing ivy and pathways closed to traffic provide a relaxed setting for strolling. Children gather to play in the piazzas and neighbors catch up on the latest news.
Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere could be called the piazza that never sleeps: street performers entertain crowds into the wee hours with music, fire juggling, acrobatics and comic skits. Places like the Foro Romano or the Spanish Step maybe more enjoyable during the daytime, but for nightlife, Trastevere is the place to be. Some neighborhoods in Rome can be intimidating after dark; Trastevere isn't one of them. Italians and foreigners pour in after hours to enjoy the many bars and restaurants.
At dusk, in adjacent Piazza Sant' Egidio, artisans and vendors set up tables to sell crafts, jewelry, candles and more. A former convent turned museum, Sant'Egidio's Museo del Folklore features exhibits portraying more recent Roman life.
If you want to get a workout or just need to get in touch with nature, the park at Villa Pamphili in Monteverde, further up Mount Janiculum (Gianicolo), is the place to be. Void of tourists, this running, walking, and biking trail draws old and young alike. During the weekdays, grandparents pushing strollers are common and on the weekends, couples and families arrive to picnic and exuberantly cheer soccer games. Water pours continuously from fountains here and all over Rome.
Bargain hunters will be happy to know about the Porta Portese flea market. Located off Viale Trastevere, beginning at the corner of Via Portuense and Via Ippolito Nievo, the savvy shopper can stock up on new and used items including beautiful picture frames, prints, jewelry, trendy clothing and many more good buys. Go early to avoid the crowds (hours are Sundays, 6:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.).
All are close, Tram, bus and train!

Lucilla was a fantastic host. She met us on arrival to the apartment and showed us around. She provided us some fresh fruit and booked dinner for us at a beautiful little restaurant. Best pasta we have ever had! Location could not be better as its within walking distance to most of the main tourist attractions and funky little side streets where you can find many things. The apartment was very cosy for the 2 of us and we would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks so much Lucilla xx
Lucilla welcomed us very nicely although we arrived late on the night of her birthday. The neighborhood is very lively, the apartment is in a quiet corner though. Lucilla was always reachable when we needed her. We enjoyed our stay very much!
