Just like Rome, this blog post wasn’t built in a day.  Since leaving Rome we have been busy.  We spent a few days in London so Brent could attend a work event and then we headed off to Buenos Aires for our first taste of South America! More on that later.

Back to Rome….the two of us both agree that Rome is one of the best cities in the world.  The ruins, the history, the people, the energy, the food, the list goes on and on.  We love it all.  Since we have both been before and have seen many of the main attractions we spent most of our time there just walking the streets and soaking up the atmosphere.

The highlight of our trip was exploring the Trastevere neighborhood, which neither of us had been to before.  It is located across the River Tiber, not far from the chaos and traffic of Piazza Venezia, but feels very neighborhoody. It was a great place for an evening stroll and dinner.  The streets are packed with outdoor restaurants with charming Italian men ready to make your meal a fun one (ours convinced us the water dripping from the building above onto our table was “romantic” instead of annoying, and we bought it).  We would definitely like to spend more time in the Trastevere on our next visit.
