Rome walk lunch Trevi dinner 2012

Trevi is the rione II of Rome, located in Municipio I. The origin of its name is not clear, but the most accepted possibility is that it comes from the Latin trivium (meaning "three streets"), because there were three streets all leading to "piazza dei Crociferi", a square next to the modern Trevi square. Its logo is made of three swords on a red background. This rione, during the Roman republic belonged to the third region, while during the Roman empire was split up into two regions: the VI, called Alta Semita and the VII, called via Lata. During the ancient Roman period, in rione Trevi there were large groups of private houses with some monumental buildings. Since that time the area was actually split up into two parts: a lower one, level and next to the river Tiber, and a higher one on the hills. The first one was one of the center of the activities of the city, while the second one was a rich and peaceful residential area.
