IN LOVE!

The quaintest little town ever! Our concierge told us to go for the food, which was so incredible we went twice, but we walked around for a few hours and took in all the beauty!

We took a fantastic eating tour in Trastevere and sampled from 8-9 different unique restaurants for cheeses, meats, wines and cookies. Trastevere is known for its food and quieter city life.

Don't be afraid of getting lost in the Trastevere. On a hot July day, I took a cab from my hotel to San Pietro in Montorio, and from there I meandered. First, I visited the Bramante temple. I recommend spending extra time in the Spanish Academy and entering the neighboring church (with a worthwhile collection of paintings). Meander down the... More

Trastevere to me is home first. Then it is Rome notwithstanding the meaning of its name. Across (tras) the river Tiber (Tevere) actually shows how the area was perceived back in the old days - some sort of suburban outskirts. Both my parents were born and brought up here close to San Francesco a Ripa. Until the '90s I would... More

We had dinner here and it is just a fun place to eat and enjoy Rome with all the things you come to expect: wine, good food and lots of laughter and occasional singing

We made a special effort to visit this area, but found that it was disappointing and rather tacky. The traffic was noisy and the stalls could have been anywhere.

Spent a wonderful morning wandering and taking in the sites, natives do groceries on Saturday mornings, some shops open after 11. Some unique shops and very nice meat and cheese shops

We took the subway and a bus to get there from Termini area. Ate at a good restaurant and enjoyed the inside of a local church, walked back towards the Tiber. Well worth a visit.

A must see, very laid back part of Rom. Quiet, small streets and small shops with local artists as well as others.

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.
