    I lived in Garbatella for about 2 years, and absolutely loved it. The houses are 1930s constructions which are super quaint and have a very village-y feel. There are a few amazing trattorie which are just so Roman they become almost caricatures. It's quiet and residential, but beautiful and quirky.

    Rome's history didn't all happen two thousand years ago. Garbatella, a neighborhood constructed in the 1930s, is an excellent example of recent times, featuring round little houses covered in flowers, winding streets, and a distinctly Roman vibe.

Description

Built in the 1920s and ‘30s on the south­ern out­skirts of the city, this res­i­den­tial quar­ter-- meant for port work­ers and their fam­i­lies -- was part of a plan to link Rome to the sea at Ostia via a nav­i­ga­ble canal par­al­lel to the Tiber. While the canal was never dug, the hous­ing devel­op­ment of detached houses and small blocks built around a com­mon court­yards and gar­dens began. And while their was an architectural design shift midway through the urban planning process, the ultimately result remained a distinctively relaxed, green, people-friendly neighborhood complete with lush communal spaces, street art and vegetable gardens.
