Walking, eating, sightseeing, church watching, this place has it all.
Have been coming to Trastevere for 30 years. Never miss it. Top rated restaurant is Sabatini, In the main church square, but really, one can have an excellent in any of the 50 or so restaurants within walking distance from this excellent restaurant. To get a real look at Roman life, and a feeling of inclusiveness, don't miss this jewel.
Acturally, you can walk there in 15-20 minutes from the Vatican.
Fun restaurant, touristy, yet really fun is Da Mel Petacco. See my review of this restaurant. I wouldn't miss it. We go every time we go to Rome.
