While there are many lovely neighborhoods in Rome (the artsy Monti, quaint Trastevere, the rustic, working class Testaccio), I’ve never once wished to live anywhere but my current home of Prati. Perhaps it’s because of my close proximity to two metro stops, making transportation a breeze. Pope Francis as a neighbor is also pretty cool (within five minutes I was at St. Peter’s when he was announced as the new pontiff), and the breathtaking, nighttime walk down Via della Conciliazione remains one of my favorite sights in the eternal city.
