Staying in Rome


… our apartment in Rome was big enough for 5 adults and a baby

One of the things that really stood out for me in Rome, especially where we stayed in Monteverde Vecchio is that everyone seemed to live in apartment buildings. I didn’t see any single family residences. Our apartment was gated and within walking distance  of the grocery store, the tram, parks and restaurants.

Our first afternoon there we walked around the neighbourhood to get our bearings and discovered a lovely square, caffes and outdoor vendors.

On our way home we passed a parade. We weren’t sure what it was but clearly it had something to do with the church.

      • Hehe, well, I think there is a lot of people either not bothering to verify their ticket (if they have it at all) or using another system – a monthly, daily or an hourly ticket that you don’t need to verify each ride. However, the machine on the tram allows you to buy a ticket on the spot too.
