Engagement session in Rome Trastevere
Trastevere is undoubtedly the most romantic district of Rome.
You can feel in every alley the secret charm that survived centuries of history.
The ancient name, from Latin trans Tiberim, emphasizes that its appearance has always been a little ‘detached from the surrounding city activities.
Trastevere is a place that lives its own life, almost a town in the city. The surprise is hidden behind every corner of this historic village.
Having to imagine the soundtrack of a night walk in Trastevere the ideal notes would definitely be those of a passionate tango, emphasized by the ticking of the two lovers walking on characteristic cobblestones.
Amanda and Tim, during a trip to Italy, have chosen Trastevere as a perfect backdrop for their promise of love.
They exchanged their first “always will be” lit by the warm glow of the sunset overlooking the Ponte Sisto with the languid Tiber as a witness.
A walk along Via Garibaldi, hand in hand, leads to one of the most spectacular views over the Eternal City, one of the Janiculum, a traditional meeting place of Roman lovers and one of the first place for wedding photo shoots.
Walking along the narrow, winding streets that wind between the facades of medieval houses and suddenly some of the most beautiful squares in Rome unfold under their eyes: Santa Maria in Trastevere with its gorgeous church, loved by all wedding couples and crowded with people at all hours of day and night, the intimate Piazza Trilussa, dedicated to the famous dialect poet and whose staircase where tourists and Romans linger, Piazza S. Callisto, Piazza Belli and Piazza della Scala.
Nowadays Trastevere has two souls who live powerfully with each other: the colourful and multicultural ferment of the nightlife and the most genuine and strong flavour of its craft shops and local markets. The many restaurants that have retained the charm of the ancient Roman trattorias are the ideal place for a romantic wedding dinner by candlelight breathing the real soul of the eternal city.
