la Dolce Vista in Trastevere
Rome, Lazio, Italy
Additional Location Information
Trastevere is the 13th rione of Rome, on the west bank of the Tiber, south of Vatican City. Its name comes from the Latin trans Tiberim, meaning literally "beyond the Tiber".
Nowadays, Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses. At night, natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants, but much of the original character of Trastevere remains.
The area is also home to several foreign academic institutions including The American University of Rome and John Cabot University (both of which are private American universities), the American Academy in Rome, the Rome campus of the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, the Canadian University of Waterloo School of Architecture (between the months of September and December), and the American Pratt Institute School of Architecture therefore serving as home to an international student body.
The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people. In the sixties and seventies, the American musicians/composers Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum, of the group Musica Elettronica Viva, lived in Via della Luce. Sergio Leone, the director of Spaghetti Westerns, grew up in Viale Glorioso (there is a marble plaque to his memory on the wall of the apartment building), and went to a Catholic private school in the neighborhood. Ennio Morricone, the film music composer, went to the same school, and for one year was in the same class as Sergio Leone.
Within a few minutes’ walking you will be able to reach the Janiculum Hill (Gianicolo), San Pietro in Montorio and its Tempietto del Bramante, Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, Villa Pamphili and its immense park, the Botanic Garden, or the flee market of Porta Portese on Sundays and so many more.
The apartment is well located in a strategic zone near shops, restaurants, open market, cinema, museum and everything you can need but far from the noises and traffic.
Although it is very nice to walk through the city, the tram and bus stops to the historic center of Rome (e.g. Piazza Venezia or Coliseum) or to the Vatican are all within a few hundred meters and you will be able to reach these sites quickly and easily.
