Rome District San Lorenzo

Posted 17.08.2014 by Leigh

San Lorenzo is a district in the centre of Rome that lies just north of the Eternal city's main train station, Termini, and roughly occupies both of the sides of the early stretch of Via Tiburtina. It has always been associated as a working class area and a popular leftist district. This has continued up to the present day thanks to the close vicinity of one of Rome's main universities, La Sapienza. It was heavily bombed and destroyed during the Second World War, although its main tourist attraction still remains intact, Papal Basilica of Saint Lawrence outside the Walls (Italian: Basilica Papale di San Lorenzo fuori le Mura), apart from its rebuilt façade. Today, it is a busy area full of life thanks mainly to its high percentage of student inhabitants. Furthermore, for this reason there are lots of choices with regards to cheap eateries, bars and cafés.
