This little island is like an oasis of tranquility. Two bridges cross over to it, from opposite shores, and when I walked over to the island it felt like I was in a small Italian town, with its own piazza and church. There is an attractive medieval bell tower close by the church, really good to photograph. Unfortunately the church... More

Lots of nightlife to the sides of the Tiber. Take one of the bridges that cross the river and you will find the wrecks of the oldest bridge in Rome. Take some time to chill out in any of the river side bars.

Located right in the middle of the Tiber River in bustling Rome, Isola Tiberina is an oasis of calm and charm. The historic Church of Saint Bartholomew located there with its gorgeous mosaics is certainly worth a visit!

Bit of history: a doctor hid Jewish people in the hospital there, told the Nazis that they had a very contagious disease...and saved them from the camps. The island has newer buildings now, but the bridges going across on both sides are lovely.

I spent lot of time in reaching this place by walk. It has a historical bridge built centuries ago. But all the constructions are new and highly commercial. You will be disappointed if you are terribly obsessed with history.

This small island is located in the middle of the Tiber river, at a bend the river takes almost in front of the Imperial Roman ruins. If you walk from the Forum Imperiale to the Trastevere, you have to walk trhrough, by force, the Isola. Connected to the Eastern bank of the Tiber by Ponte Fabricio and to the Western... More

Walking from one side of the Tiber to the other, we took the bridge that lead us onto Isola Tiberina. Not much to see there, but it was a pleasant walk with nice views from both sides and the middle of the river. Bridge was lined with sellers of all sorts of things, including a couple of local artists, who... More

We walked from the Vatican to the island. The river makes a lovely walk, though very under developed. In England it would have been full of cafes and stalls and boats. Oddly here the river is very under used. The island is tiny, but has a lovely church and great ice creams!

Although we didn't take a walk along Tiber, the view itself over it is nice. Not too narrow, not too dirty and destroyed with graffiti, nice combination of river's green and leaves' 'red colour. The island itself is not dramatically beautiful, but the whole area gives some archaic impression. There are several buildings on it, river around it, Trastevere from... More
