Historic neighbourhood, a formerly working-class district. Let yourself get lost in a maze of narrow, cobbled lanes flanked by tables and bikes, casually parked in front of the ivy clad façades. Charming and vibrant quarter with the beautiful Santa Maria in Trastevere on the lively piazza, and a wealth of romantic restaurants and cosy cafés. A truly enjoyable experience.

Just over the river from the historical sites which are an easy walk or tram ride. Full of narrow streets with a huge range of shops, restaurants and bars. Very lively with a lot of pedestrian streets so you can avoid the roar of the traffic of the main part of the city.

The best area to get a real feel of Rome. Lots of restaurants and lovely little back streets with bars/cafes.

This neighbourhood in Rome is wonderful for a weekend walk, with no stress and some time to get lost around the small streets, visiting stores and trying new restaurants. Very nice place to photograph and close to the Vatican, so you can visit the St Pieters Square after lunch.

We visited all of the ancient history sites all over Rome, but to get a taste of what Rome is today you really need to visit Trastevere. This is where the true Romans live... great food and shopping!

Trastavere is a quaint little neighborhood on the other side of the Tiber, and was one of my wife's favorite stops. It's great to walk around in the evening.

We made Trastevere home for 4 days whilst on holiday and could easily stay longer. The streets are filled with shops, restaurants and bars and vehicle traffic is minimal. It can be noisy at night if you decide to stay in Trastevere, but it is so conveniently located, around 30 minutes walk to all of the major sites, we were... More

We spent a full day here checking out the shops, restaurants, churches, outdoor market, etc. This little neighborhood has a nice vibe....not fancy, not too touristy, a bit more laid back (at least in the winter). Lots of good little restaurants and food shops. Would be especially nice on an uncrowded spring day when you can eat outside. If you... More

While in Rome and looking for something characteristic, I would like to strongly suggest a walk in Trastevere. The best time is in the afternoon of a sunny day. You can do shopping on the streets and at dinner time enjoy the popular food from the many small restaurants there. Later on before leaving why do not stop on a... More
