Afternoon in Trastevere in photos

Wandering aimlessly through a city neighbourhood is one of my favourite things to do when traveling. On another spectacularly beautiful Roman afternoon on our recent trip, my wife and I crossed the Tiber River and found ourselves in a charming area of cobblestone streets and medieval architecture.  Here’s what a couple of hours in Trastevere looked like through the lens of our camera.

Santa Cecilia (a 5th century church) and its idyllic courtyard:
