I'm staying in the Trastevere area and have literally fallen in love. All of the reviews stating that it is the more 'authentic' part of Rome are correct, as it isn't swarming with tourists 24/7. The Piazza Santa Maria has become my afternoon hang out/rest area and I can quite comfortably sit here for hours people watching. The streets and... More

We have truly fallen in love with Trastevere, a really real & happening part of Rome, away from all the camera welding tourists & big tour parties. This lovely squire is a great place to eat, drink or chill out & watch the world go by.

The piazza was nice. Needed to be cleaned up a little but nice area, central to neighborhood. There were a number of restaurant in the area but the gypsy were too aggressive.

All of the previous reviews have it right: Rome is so huge and important and old and impressive. In this piazza, you can picture yourself living here, just as you are. Suddenly, for the first time in your trip, you fell like you belong here. It's homey, charming, cozy, romantic, adventurous, my new favorite place. The transportation is terrible: There... More

Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere is a picturesque and lively square, so typical of Trastevere. The fountain in the center is a great meeting place, and the piazza in general is one of the best places to people-watch in all of Rome. The church is ancient and features absolutely stunning mosaics.

We visited the square on a few occasions - plenty of bars/restaurants and live music. Very quaint and a nice way to see in the afternoon.

Lovely little square surrounded by bars and restaurants and the church. Go here just at the end of the afternoon to have an aperitif.
