Antico Forno Roscioli  Posted on 09/24/2015
Rome has no shortages of landmarks: Colosseum, Pantheon, St. Peter’s Square, Pyramid of Cestius, Circus Maximus… But one of my favorite landmarks of all is the bright yellow FORNO sign on Via dei Chiavari. Antico Forno Roscioli...

Goodbye, Roman Summer  Posted on 09/16/2015

Tram Depot: Testaccio’s Quirky Coffee Cart  Posted on 06/28/2015
One of the best things about Testaccio is very practical: location. Living here, we are within a short walk to the center, a few minutes from Trastevere, and well connected to everything else by the train, metro, tram and bus lines that...
