Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere

The sun was just coming up and beginning to illuminate the mosaics on the facade of Santa Maria in Trastevere, and the warm ochres and terracotta colors of the Piazza.
I love early mornings for the quiet and the freedom to walk unobstructed and to take photographs. Especially in a city like Rome – it is wonderful to feel you have the city to yourself for a few moments even if it is an illusion.

  1. I loved Rome and really hope to go back there for a month+ stay to get to know the city better. The availability of vegan gelato is a big plus for me!

    • Hi Kate. I want to do that as well. I’ve been many times but never get to stay as long as I’d like. LOl on the gelato. I’m not vegan but I think it’s pretty easy to find good food in Rome

  2. Gorgeous pic. And great idea getting out early in the morning to enjoy the serenity – Rome was always so bustling when I was there. That’s part of the charm, but it’s nice to see the city in a different light too.
