The design and the objects are a must see but the best thing about the shop is the owner! I bought a couple of items used for determining time at night.

I loved this shop! Cool globes, armillaries, compasses & more. The only bad thing was that it was too pricey for what we budget for souvenirs. Still great to look around in, though, and an awesome neighborhood!

If you are in Trastevere and would like to pick up a little something unique from Rome and not the usual tourist garb, this is it. "The sands of time" sells a lot of hourglasses, maps, sundials and compasses. Every little thing feels ornate and...More

Tiny shop owned and run by a lovely older gentleman who makes hourglasses and also sells vintage globes and a few pieces of interesting jewelry. Fun!

I love hourglasses, so when we walked past this store I made sure to go in. Everything inside was lovely, though out of my price range; the tiniest of hourglasses was 31€! They also sold a bit of fine jewelry that was beautiful as well....More

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