“Live like the locals and stay in Garbatella”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We chose to stay in Garbatella as we did not want to hang out with a massive number of tourists. We wanted to be able to experience the local life.
And we did in Garbatella.
Its a quite area, if you stay in the centre of Garbatella you will have access to all transports to go to other places to visit the touristic stuff, if you want to.
There are a few good places to eat there - and you will be the only foreigner for sure.

“Great walking '20s-'30s Rome neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

Garbatella isn't for everyone: it isn't for shoppers (most of the stores are on its northern border, the business-like boulevard, Circonvallazione Ostiense), and it isn't for those seeking a high-level dining or wine-bar experience (though we did find a comfortable wine bar and several good restaurants). Garbatella is for those with an interest in 20th-century architectural and design history; those with an interest in the politics and aesthetics of Italian Fascism; those who savor the mystery created by hills, curving streets, and enchanting stairways; and those seeking a glimpse of the historical experience of Rome's working class. We put an itinerary within a blog post on our romethesecondtime blog, and Aristofane - who wrote the first review of this 'hood, suggested we write a review of it as well.
