|San Lorenzo, Rome|
Where to go in San Lorenzo when you are not anymore an uni student?
After the hell of a weekend at work, I finally had the time to relax and spend a couple of days with my Macedonian friend Elena who was in town for a long weekend. I was feeling guilty for ignoring her during her first days in Rome and I really wanted to make it up to her with an underground tour of the city, as she already had plenty of time during the previous days to visit the touristic part by herself. It wasn’t a marathon, though, thus the first day started slowly with a tasty brunch at my place, followed by a coffee with my mother at Dagnino, the Sicilian bar under Piazza della Repubblica’s elegant porch. From here we walked towards San Lorenzo, which I figured out being the proper point of departure of any underground tour of the capital, since all Romans in their teens, all undergraduates coming here studying from all over Italy and all Erasmus students coyly start discover the other side of Rome from this neighborhood.
