Trastevere: a myth of colourful streets and marvellous surprises
Walking down from the Janiculum hill, from where you will admire the most marvellous view of the entire city of Rome you will savour, together with Anna Bruno, the pleasure of getting lost through the labirithyne streets of the most famous district of Rome: Trastevere.
It’s medieval and Renaissance palaces and villas such as the Renaissance villa Farnesina, its gardens such as the Botanical garden in Rome, old and special shops, family restaurants and cafés, medieval convents and churches, historical markets, music and art, make this little quarter the pearl of the Eternal city… and your soul will certainly be kidnapped!
You can also choose our thematic 2 and- a- half-hour tour (with the special opening of the XVII-century pharmacy) followed by our enthusiastic cooking class. Not before doing your shopping at the every day market of St. Cosimato with our famous cooker “La rospa”. It is when your trip to Rome becomes unforgettable for your memory!
You will be welcomed with special openings, glittering mosaics and fairy tale frescos by Raphael and many other artists and…food. I am pretty sure you will enjoy the best Italian flavours and hearing about historical anectodes of popes, aristocrats and “famous” ordinary people and… watching the pittoresque laundry still hung outside. Your photos will be like paintings…please do not forget your camera!
You will appreciate the smell some officinal plants turned to be natural health remedies until not 1957 when all this little historical pharmacies closed for ever!…you will discover its underground treasure and folklore customs… and probably find yourself dancing the so-called historical Roman saltarello!
