Residential Trastevere for tourists and college students: Tips from an American local!


are you a tourist or a college student here in Trastevere this video is for you [Music] to t be new to some yo Kenard a hi everyone welcome to my channel david’s dose of Italy I’ve been inspired to make this video because every single day here until I save it I I see a lot of American college students and also tourists that pass by this area and so I thought I would give you a little guide as to what you can do and see here in this area if this is your first time here at my channel once again welcome and here I give tips about Italy more specifically I give practical tips for people coming here on vacation Kumi and channel let’s get started so this is my favorite grocery store you’ll pay a little bit extra but to be honest for me that’s never really a problem because I don’t mind paying a little bit extra for good food well they haven’t got much for cereal but as you can see there’s never a shortage of beer I also don’t get it where they don’t label the aisles you know in all my years living here one thing that I’ve never really fully gotten used to is seeing the sight of dogs in public places especially restaurants this is another good place to consider it’s kind of like elite in the sense that you pay a little bit more but the quality of the food here is very good here you can find local produce and very good meats a question that often comes up is how do you get around town once you’re here into a save a day well if you want to go to pee Tommy day that’s the nearest metro stop so you want to wait here along the tram tracks and take a number three and that eventually it will take you there if you want to go to the center of town then I would wait for the eight and you can also take the number H bus I haven’t been here yet but this is definitely on my list and you can find it here another good place to try is this one here Kota a port at O which in Italian means cooked and ready to go more or less it’s run by a local guy Marco he’s very nice you walk in there’s food behind behind the counter you just tell them what you want and it’s pretty good and reasonably priced and then we had this place called the smoke ring as you can see from the picture here it’s an american-style place but you walk in and you can get ribs you can get burgers American meats and the atmosphere really does make you feel like you’re back in the United States I liked it and then next door you have this place called chop sticks as you can probably imagine this place is an Asian restaurant but also if you come there for dinner then you do have a bit of the Brazilian option Brazilian in the sense where the waiters come around and they have these skewers of meat and they just keep feeding you meat until you tell them stop if you come in here on a Sunday then you have the all-you-can-eat option or you can do a la carte it’s a tad expensive but it’s good value I’ve never actually been inside this bar before but I’m dying of curiosity let’s go and find out let’s see exactly what they mean by 420 [Music] that’s it the guy just added ahead to the beer and so I’m pretty happy my buddy however I had a bit confused I ordered a New England Pale Ale I’m from Connecticut New England and he said it’s made in France oh well I hope the beer is good this place behind me is called the beauty fool Joe I come here sometimes and it’s great they have good selection beers good German beers and a good kitchen too it’s a good environment to you walk in you feel cozy and sometimes they play rock music so that makes me happy I [Music] guess this person was absolutely convinced that they could parallel park well I can’t blame them and it’s not exactly easy but I have learned [Music] any patients when you come here because it is wall-to-wall people there’s just every single kind of type of person that you can expect to find here I mean I saw a guy that had a bad jacket on and he looked like a 1970s game show host I was like [Music] I don’t have a ton of recommendations as far as hotels are concerned because I live in the area what I can do is recommend you this place if you looking for a decent hotel to stay out here in Pintrest daviday then I highly recommend this place this is called the hotel Arriba or Rippa with the American pronunciation and I’ve absolutely no idea why there’s so many duckies here but anyway here’s the main entrance here my family has come and stayed at that hotel so I do recommend it so for this week’s expression I thought that I would give you something that you can use when you go to a restaurant now like anywhere when you walk in they always wants to know how many people earn your party to say that anytime you would say what I say it huh see how mine do it and what I’ve just said is good evening there’s two of us but if you translate it literally you are saying we are in – that’s just the way they say anytime so yeah before you come to Italy you might where I learned a few numbers all right everyone that is the end of this video I really hope you liked it and I hope you got some value out of it hope and I hope you learned a little bit more about today video and by the way that the pronunciation is the last David a class stay with it if there was something in particular that you liked about the video or if you have a question then drop me a comment below grazie Mille pretension a cheap idiom elaborate Seema thank you very much for watching and I’ll see you next time [Music]

    Another really helpful video. I've never stayed in Trastevere but would like to at some point. It took me a few trips to Rome to learn the correct pronunciation of the area. I was saying , "tras-tah–'veray" with accent on vere. Lol. In June of 2008 I went to Porta Portese Market. Whoa. I usually can handle crowds pretty well but it was extremely constricting that day. All I wanted to do was get out of there, more so because it was a really hot day and I had to travel by train to Milan to meet my sis and family who were flying in the next day. I particularly like Trastevere because of the Church of San Francesco in Ripa and Bernini's sculpture of the Ecstacy of St. Teresa at the last chapel on the left. It's stunning. Also going up Via Garibaldi to La Fontanone is worth it. Regarding Roadhouse…. I use the statue of the cow outside Termini's Roadhouse as a meeting point if I've lost a travel mate. 🤣😜. Clearly, I have to learn more about the area. Perhaps you could do a video of the boats that go along the Tiber, if they're even running anymore. Is it something worth experiencing? Grazie ancora David e fino al prossimo video. 🇺🇸✈🇮🇹
