I am currently in the process of booking a month in Rome in September. Most of the time I will be by myself, although my husband is coming over for 10 days (he works in North Africa). Today's (early) query is: what would be the best neighbourhood to stay in for a woman on her own to feel comfortable eating out locally on a daily basis? I am most definitely not going to stay inside and cook for myself! I am a big walker and explorer. I would prefer not to be that near the major tourist sites. I want to be welcomed and as local as possible. I will be working a lot with my laptop so places where I can stay and drink coffee without being hassled would be good too.
