If you have the opportunity, you have to do this food tour. It was definitely a highlight for me. Sarah was our tour guide and was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun! I discovered one of my new favorite dishes discovered on this tour (fried artichoke) which I will definitely be enjoying at home and reminiscing of my time in Rome.... More

I don't know. It was quaint, but maybe we did not walk the entire district. I wanted to see more laundry hanging out of the windows. Doesn't seem as authentically local Italian as I thought it would be. I think a lot of expats and well to do people have moved into the area along with tourists renting apartments. I... More

Trastevere is away from the crowds of central Rome and has lots to see and do. On Sunday the Porta Portese flea market is where lots of locals can be found rummaging for bargains. It has everything from clothes, to household goods, antiques and books. It's a real slice of traditional Italian life. Stopping off for drinks in Piazza Santa... More

This neighborhood across the river isn't crowded with tour bus, but you can still meet lots of foreigners and it's cafés and bars. Small shops and museums can be found between the numerous patios. Good atmosphere. Great place for a date or to meet up with friends over a mojito pitcher.

We were tipped off about Trastevere by a family member - and what a tip it was! Just a 15-20 minute stroll from the Piazza Venezia and across the Tiber you will find this wonderful suburb of Rome. Authentic, enchanting and charming. We strolled across during the day and found plenty of bars and restaurants, just tucked away from the... More

We strolled around and crossed the river into Trastevere and had a drink or two and soaked up the sun in the snack bar and geletaria in the piazza. Having read the previous review about being shouted at by a crazy lady we didn't experience anything similar and quite the opposite, this was a calm and lovely little spot in... More

Trastevere was such a pleasant part of Rome that I almost forgot about the hustle and bustle of the main tourist attractions! It was great to walk down small alleys that opened up to reveal a beautiful church. Both Santa Cecilia in Trastevere and Santa Maria in Trastevere are not to be missed!

After spending a few hours in this unexpected Roman gift, I was grateful to my friend Fabrizzio who had opened my eyes about it. The atmosphere in this quaint Roman neighbourhood is authentically "historical" but also lively and elegant. The restaurants and shops are worth-visiting by any tourist; but, above all, don't miss the exquisite church of Santa Maria di... More

One of the best parts of the city. True italian air and sun. It's all different there. And a romantic mood suddenly shows up and won't leave you until you are far away from Trastevere. Many cute restaurants and sightseeings that welcome you with pure italian warmth. This is one of "musts" in Rome.
