This busy and lively neighborhood has the look and feel of a traditional small Italian town, with people shopping, chatting, drinking espresso and going about their daily business.

.. without a stroll through this lovely neighborhood in Rome. Small shops, churches and cafes make for a much more human glimpse into the day to day possibilities of the city away from the more iconic tourist sights. The main thoroughfare was crowded on a Sunday afternoon but pleasantly so, lots of families with young children, older couples and friends... More

Trastevere is a wonderful neighborhood if you avoid the few street that are taken over by tourists in the evenings, unless you like a packed, rowdy crowd. But the edges of Trastevere are wonderful and walking through in the mornings is lovely. A great place to stay when visiting Rome as you are removed from the main city, but can... More

My son was studying abroad and this is where he lived. It is a lovely quaint area with coffee shops and stores. We enjoyed dining out there because it was less touristy and great food.

Great restaurants and nice walking neighborhood - another Rome must see - close to the Vatican - also a great place to stay.

We checked out the Spanish embassy which was pretty but not very interesting. Lovely and very cheap food with friendly and helpful staff. Just a nice place to look around and see a slice of Rome without tourists everywhere in sight. They have a pretty fountain and a memorial near by as well. I would recommend it if you want... More

We wandered into Trastevere to find the Santa Maria Basilica (a must see) and enjoyed the experience, even more than the church. With tight streets, lots of nooks and crannies to explore, it was an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern Rome. It was a taste of a quieter roman lifestyle. Love it and will return again.

We stayed at an AirBnB in Trastevere for two nights before our Mediterrenean cruise and loved the place. It is full of shops and restaurants that were both classical Rome and very good. Within walking distance to most of the attractions, this little section of Rome was just what we wanted to get the feel of life there.

Walk to Trastevere on the west bank of the Tiber and you will venture onto narrow cobbled streets, ancient houses and beautiful churches.

We have been to Rome several times but always stayed in other areas. We loved the feel of Trastevere - it felt more like a village next to the hustle of the urban center.

Wonderful atmospheric area full of narrow streets that are full of character and just a joy to walk through. Lots of bars, restaurants, cafe's as well as historical churches such as Santa Cecelia In Trastevere, plenty of shops on the little streets as well which are generally cheaper than in the centre of Rome. You can catch the number 3... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood 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.
