Artists neighborhood in the heart of Rome with tons of character. This is where the night life lives. Lots of local people & easy to walk or take the tram "8". It's next to the river where there's shopping & some interesting & weird restaurants.

The places comes alive after dark but still has an atmosphere where it is confortable to be with children. Well worth a... More

Our family wandered around here and it was amazing. Tons of outdoor cafes, shops, a market along the river. Walking along cobblestone streets in this charming, ancient area was a highlite. We went around 6:00pm and it was lovely. It is about a 20 min walk from Piazza Venezia, cross one of the bridges and you are there.

We went here to have some drinks and to see where all the young people of Rome go out to party. Apparently this was the place. But EVERYONE was out. We went there mid august, and all the streets were crowded. Once we moved further into the area, there were a lot more bars and the age of the people... More

This area of Rome, just across the Tiber river on the West Bank, is full of excellent restaurants and bars. The social scene is going on every night. Even on a Monday night, the streets were full of couples, groups of friends, and families strolling and enjoying the food and drink opportunities. We went back a second night after having... More

Trastevere is delightful. Restaurants, outdoor seating areas, rooftop gardens and hanging greenery amid so much history makes this area a pleasant place to spent the day. After two visits to Rome I have decided it Is my most favourite place to visit and stay.

Easy access to centre of Rome, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Colosseum, the Vatican etc via Tram. Great restaurants and bars in the area, all within walking distance. Felt safe walking there even at night time. Gorgeous buildings and amazing architecture. Plenty cafes, bank machines, you can buy Tram tickets from the Tabacchi shops dotted all around. Walk down away from... More

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.
