In the wine cellar on the Eating Italy tour

From Pittsburgh to Minneapolis, then to Amsterdam and a six-hour layover there ... I was lucky to wake up enough on the flight to Rome to see the Alps covered in snow. It was a beautiful day and I had a window seat so I could enjoy the sight.

I took the train to Trastevere station and found the B & B, Suites Trastevere, pretty easily. It was my first time staying in Trastevere and I liked this B&B very much. Marco welcomed me, made me a caffè and made sure I understood the transportation options for the area. I went out to walk around. It was a gorgeous day and I didn't want to waste the sunshine on unpacking inside. I walked all around the area, which does have a neighborhood feel with its fruit stores, phone stores, neighborhood bars and restaurants.
