Rome - where the small car is king

Wandering round the narrow streets of the old Roman quarters like Trastavere and the Jewish Ghetto, I was amazed that the narrow cobbled streets that I'd assumed were pedestrianised actually had cars and motorbikes whizzing up and down them.

These are my 2 favorite neighborhoods in Rome. I photographed that same lovely house in the top photo and would love to see what it looks like on the inside.

Your pics came out great...

I loved that about Rome, albeit slightly nerve-racking when you taxi starts whizzing down those side streets and narrowly avoiding the pedestrians. We could definitely learn a thing or two from Rome though...
