Visited Via Rasella, yet to my surprise the only plaque that exists is one in memory of the ten italians that died there, of which its documented four or six were killed by the terrorist bomb planted by the partisans. Its no doubt part of Rome history

Wherever you are in Europe, it is safe to say that you are no more than a stone’s throw away from the location of some key historical event. Rome is no different and while the ruins of the old Empire are obvious, there are many more recent stories to be told. As an avid world war II buff myself, I... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
