This is a great area that many tourists don't visit. The church is beautiful. We ate right there in that piazza and visited the flea market that happens on Sundays. A great little area of Rome.
When we arrived in the square in front of Santa Maria in Trastevere there were lots of children (and adults) dressed up in various costumes, dancing and playing music.
