Ostiense, 10 minutes walking distance from Trastevere, is one of Europe’s coolest quarters

Rare is the day when check out times and flight times align in synchronicity. Often check out times are early-ish, leaving people to figure out where to store baggage while squeezing in some last minute fun before heading to the airport.

Don’t make this mistake, leave your luggage with StoreMe in Trastevere and take a tour of Rome’s Ostiense district, 10 minutes walking distance from Trastevere.

This neighborhood has been included in a list of “10 of the coolest neighbourhoods in Europe” by The Guardian.

Among landmarks mentioned is Centrale Montemartini, a fomer power plant and today one of Rome’s museums highlighted for its “jarring juxtaposition” of classical statues displayed among defunct engines and turbines.

Other monuments listed are the Non-Catholic Cemetery – the final resting place of Romantic poets Keats and Shelley – and the ancient Pyramid of Caius Cestius, located adjacent to each other in the Testaccio district which borders with Ostiense.

Place to visit and must see near Trastevere – Campidoglio

Spending some hours in any departures lounge at Fiumicino or Ciampino airports is a waste when some of the world’s most iconic attractions are just a short walk away from Trastevere.

The central building is the Rome City Hall, the other two are the Capitoline Museums, with an excellent collection of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, the foundations of the ancient Temple of Jupiter and many other artifacts.
