Cocktails at Stazione di Posta in Testaccio (Rome)

I often bemoan that lack of cool places to hang out in Testaccio. As you can see from my postings, I love my neighborhood, and I want to spend a lot of time in this corner of Rome, but there is a dearth of evening options unless you are into teenage nightclubs. Enter: Stazione di […]

Fairytale Boutique: Shopping In Rome’s Testaccio District
