Overview

Rome is not only the Colosseum, Piazza Venezia or the Altare della Patria but much more. The true charm of Rome is given by what is hidden there.

The true charm of Rome is given by what is hidden there.

Rome is not only the Colosseum, Piazza Venezia or the Altare della Patria but much more: wandering around the city you can see the characteristic division into neighborhoods, so as to make it look like a city born from the union of many small villages.

Slowly we will first discover Trastevere, a picturesque and ancient district from an architectural point of view: getting lost inside it to discover its typical alleys, taverns and shops, should be a must for every tourist in Rome.

It is from here that, probably, was built the first official site dedicated to the Christian cult in Rome, properly recognized in the Basilica of S. Maria in Trastevere.

This Basilica stands in the homonymous square of the district in which you will not even seem to stay in Rome for the charm given by the noise of the modern city coming from outside and the silence of the ancient village inside.

Trastevere is the real romanity, it is a reference point not only in the evening but also daily: the pubs, the dim lights of the night, the street artists, are flanked by monuments rich in history such as the temple of Bramante, the Basilica of Santa CeciliaVia della ScalaPiazza in Piscinula.

Shortly after this district with completely independent characteristics to the rest of the city, we will continue towards Ostiense, typical for its industrial charm, famous for its nightlife.

The Ostiense district is dominated by the so-called Gazometer: a structure that is now unused and used until the 1960s to store the city’s gas, it is a place particularly loved by the director Ferzan Ozpetek.

Another typical district of the city is undoubtedly that of Garbatella, the youngest of the historic districts, made famous by the Vespa tours of Nanni Moratti in the movie “Dear Diary”.

Urbanistically, the neighborhood was designed between the 1920s and the 1930s, an ideal place to take a stroll through gardens and historic buildings like the Palladium former cinema now used as a theater.

During the visit to the historic districts of Rome San Lorenzo can not be missing, located outside the tourist circuits.

This district from the Bohemien air, San Lorenzo is today inhabited purely by university students while in the past it was a proletarian area and this is made known in advance by the houses with balcony.

Here we will also find the Verano cemetery, one of the most famous in Rome, practically an “open-air museum” built during the Napoleonic era, it represents a tribute to famous men and women like Mastroianni and Sordi.
