Rome Day 03




(See Rome Day 01 and Day 02)

On our third day in Rome we all felt a bit tired, so we got a good sleep in, and then later headed off towards the 'Trastevere' area. We just had a look around, got some take-away pizza, sat down by a fountain, ate gelato, explored the area a bit more.

I find it quite hard to say what Trastevere felt like - after a couple of days in Rome and constant photo taking you start to feel like it all looks the same, although nothing actually is the same. (Still in a good way of course - I did love Rome!). It was hard to tell what's different about the area. We probably didn't see enough of it, either. Maybe it felt a bit more arty and less touristy, and then of course there were all the cobbled tiny streets, fountains, etc.

After about a couple of hours we just felt like relaxing again (meaning just staying in our apartment doing nothing), so we just headed back and did exactly that.
We had a nice and relaxing day. :)

  1. I've never been to Rome, but it looks beautiful! We've just booked tickets to Tuscany in October and I'm pretty excited about it.

    1. Ha, really? That's funny. I'd love to see some of your photos too - would be so interesting to compare and see how we 'see' things differently (or in a similar way) :)

  3. I love your Rome pictures! I also went to Trastevere in the morning and found it very quiet and relaxing. Our taxi driver who is from Trastevere told us that it used to be a small not too rich village outside Rome, with a lot of artisans, etc. Apparently now it's become a neighborhood with lots of night life, which I guess is why if you go there in the morning you find it too similar to the rest of the city. You take amazing photos:)
