Hello my dear readers, last week, while in Trastevere, I made this short video with my smartphone. Enjoy!
I have a special bond with Trastevere. Our "affair" started a long time ago in an unforgettable way. It was my first day in my flat in Rome, in my first year of University. At that time, I was sharing the flat with my best friend and with an older friend. Happy and tired for the… Continue reading A stroll (and memories) in Trastevere with Lady

For its construction, a beautiful medieval neighbourhood was… Continue reading Visit the Altare della Patria with Lady
Some time ago, I heard that some people come to Rome and forget to visit Fontana di Trevi. It's just that Piazza di Trevi is a little hidden between Piazza Barberini and Via del Corso and at the end of the day, after a long walk, you realise that you missed it and you don't have… Continue reading Make a wish in Fontana di Trevi with Lady
