This is my favourite neighbourhood in Rome. It offers a slice of the most authentic Roman life. The restaurants serve authentic Roman fare at very reasonable prices. People speak Romano not Italian, which I love and also happen to understand!!! In the evening it's very lively. I just loved it! Don't you dare miss it!!

One of the best places in Rome, long narrow streets, everyone is friendly! Many restaurants all with reasonable prices and great variety. U'll be lucky to find a table by the river.

Last time we were in Rome we stayed on the other side of the Tiber, near the Spanish Steps. This time we wanted to get as close to the 'old' Roma as possible and we have achieved exactly that in Trastevere. This area just feels right... Old narrow cobbled streets, restaurants a'plenty, street buskers, noise and colour - and our... More

For me and my boyfriend Rome will always mean Trastevere. Long narrow streets, flowers at every window and corned anr small little cafes perfect for an espresso and tiramisu. If you're lucky like we were you'll catch a street musician playing his saxophone or a ballerina dancing with fire. Take a look at the street vendors and craftsmen, maybe you'll... More

Trastevere... You can smell, feel, taste the atmosphere there! The people are more friendly and authentic than the centre of Rome. At least we felt that. Lots of nice small restaurants and trattorias with excellent food and very friendly staff!

This is how we were expecting all of Rome to be. Best place to spend an afternoon+ evening, take a romantic walk, eat and drink (there are many affordable and delicious options). It was the only place in Rome where we could disconnect and actually enjoy ourselves (less crowded, stressful, without immigrants trying to sell us fake bags, without improvised... More

We loved our self-guided walking tour through Trastevere. What a delightful neighbourhood with very few tourists. Great coffee places and small restaurants to grab a bite, some interesting churches and museums and just great streets for those of us that like urban walks and discoveries. If the metro was closer, I'd even prefer to stay in this area. We were... More

This is a brief of a fresh air after crowded touristic places of Rome, full of cozy restaurants, bars, fun of the nightlife. There you can find nice unique shops. There is just that relaxed atmosphere.

If you're looking for a less touristic and more authentic aerea in Rome - go to Trastevere! You'll find wonderful restaurants, bars, little shops and even small markets there.
