This was our first time visiting Rome. We opted to stay in Trastevere, because we wanted a to stay in a non-touristy area which would allow us to experience something of the "old" Rome in character. We were looking for quaint, narrow cobblestone streets, open air markets, cute sidewalk eateries, family run meat, cheese and bread shops, etc. We got... More

Trastevere is very interesting, there are some cultural sites, churches, tiny winding streets; it is, as a rule, somewhat less touristy (but not by much) than say Colosseum or central Rome's forums. Trastevere is filled with everyday activities, but we honestly failed to experience the much-touted authenticity or unique character of this Roman neighborhood. It is not exactly that the... More

Having never been to Rome before I was hoping that my choice of an area to stay in would be good and allow my wife and I to enjoy our visit. We were so impressed with this area that I dont think I could have made a better choice. Trastevere is buzzing with life,full of little bars, shops, Tavernas, its... More

I only had time for two brief walks through here, and a great dinner, but would love to come back and stay in this part of town for a few days. Lovely little streets, beautiful cafes and bars and restaurants, and much quieter away from the tourist hub. Still within a short and easy walk to all of that, but... More

Trastavere was for me the nicest part of the city. During our 2,5-day long visit we came there three times because we just loved it - we had a pizza in one of the restaurants, ate ice cream. We also sit there with a bottle of wine chatting all night long...very authentic place and less touristic compared to other parts... More

Cross the river Tiber and discover the quieter, more bohemian area, with fantastic restos ! A whole different feel to Rome...

Stayed there for 5 days a couple of years ago with 3 friends and fell in love with this great neighborhood! Lots of activity and wonderful restaurants. Easy walk to all of Rome highlights. Will be going back this year . . Can't wait!

2nd time in Rome. Over 5 day stay - 3 visits to this district. Cosy, live, smiley place. The food is mutch better than on the other side of Tiber river (4 places were super out of 4, compared to 1 out of 10). Prices are also a lower.

We visited and walked around but feel that we could have spent our time better elsewhere. Better parks and churches in other districts of Rome.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
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 streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
