Trastevere, Rome


 August 2009

In Europe, it is very difficult to find hotel rooms that will fit a family of four (or more.)
Generally, beds are single sized (often two are pushed together to make a large double) and there’s almost always a limit of 3 twin beds (a triple) to one hotel room.
Seeing as this would not do, we started looking into other alternatives and found that apartments (and sometimes even houses) were a better and surprisingly more affordable option for our family. Not only do we prefer having more space, but I love to shop for and cook food in different cities.

Have you ever watched the show House Hunters International?

My husband and I enjoy watching it, as we hope to live abroad in the near future. It’s always interesting to see what homes look like around the world.

In that same vein, I also like to take photos of the places we stay in and thought you might enjoy seeing what a random Roman apartment looks like.

This good-sized, 2 bedroom flat was located in the medievalTrastevere neighborhood, near the base of Janiculum Hill. I’m not sure I’d stay in this neighborhood again (a little too far from city center) — but all in all, it was a quiet and comfortable place to live for our 4 days in Rome. 

We booked this particular rental through Home Away, which lists vacation rentals all across the globe.
