Friendly English bookshop with an impressive range and helpful manager (ask him to recommend restaurants to try and especially those to avoid)

In Trastevere you will find this gem of a bookshop. It is very well stocked and the service is excellent. Choice of books, both brand new, and second hand is admirable. Thank you, "Almost Corner Bookshop".

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering

mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
