  • Take a stroll among the nice houses. The area around Mount Christianiakänsla ¨ ¨ gives a little, there are enough ¨ ¨ ¨ the High Life on evenings/nights. During the daytime a little upset with a lot of graffiti but not unpleasant but just different. Worth to be seen.

  • The second time, arriving in Rome, stop at in Testaccio area. Very convenient for travelers-here and Roma's train station, from which trains to the airport, and San Paolo station with tram and Metro to the sea and Pyramid. Around lots of shops, cafes, restaurants, several supermarkets and people much less than in the Center. There are points of interest-mausoleum of Cestius, gate San Paolo.

  • Testaccio got its name from the homonymous artificial Hill, consisting of ancient fragments of broken amphorae. In contrast to the historic centre of Rome, there are no crowds, and the attractions are. This and the pyramid of Cestius, and the gate of San Paolo, which was part of the Aurelian walls, and Roman nekatoličeskoe cemetery where buried many celebrities-writers, poets, artists, and our fellow-artist Karl Bryullov, Decembrist Zakhar Chernyshev, the eldest daughter of l. n. Tolstoy Tatyana Sukhotina-Tolstaya Tatyana Lvovna and many others.
