Top ways to experience Trastevere
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

Very romantic and atmospheric place.

One of my favorite districts in Rome. Here are the most interesting restaurants and cafes in the city and the stunning promenade path near the river. Very romantic and atmospheric place.

Ugly, Dilapidated Distopia
May 2021 • Solo
There is not a square centimeter of this area that isn’t either littered or tagged with gang graffiti or both. And I say this as a person that travels to view street art. This is not art. This is no-talent tagging and it’s as bad as I’ve seen anywhere. This place is about as beautiful as the underside of a subway bridge in New York City if it happened to have nice trees. It’s not worth even an hour to visit here when there are so many beautiful areas of Rome to see. In this case you should believe the recent reviews and not the overall ranking. There is no redeeming quality to recommend other than the trees. This may have been a nice place in the distant past, but today this neighborhood is UGLY.

Unfortunately it is no longer what it used to be before.
Mar 2021 • Friends
Trastevere is undoubtedly one of the most characteristic neighborhoods of the whole city of Rome, where among narrow colorful alleys, Roman trattorias, markets, small shops and artisan shops, it is still possible to get lost to rediscover the essence of the most authentic and genuine Rome.
However, besieged in the last thirty years by massive mass tourism, the district has slowly, over the years, lost its true peculiarity to the advantage of its purely commercial and money oriented profile.
To this aspect, neglect and abandonment have also been added, and for this reason a deplorable factor of architectural,cultural and environmental decay and disservices of the community has taken over.
Unfortunately it is no longer what it used to be before.
We still recommend a visit.

Must mangia at La Tavernetta
Apr 2021 • Friends
My sister lives in Rome and we were in Trastevere for the afternoon. La Tavernetta is a quaint, friendly spot to sit in the cobblestone streets for food and drink. Our wait or, Alex, was hospitable and accommodating to our every need. Check it out when in Rome.

The place is in shambles. The not so well regarded rung of society throngs here. Throw in some bad coffe selling spot with furniture straight out of garbage tin, you have this place. Real bad, real sad.

Economical but quality

Great location next to the Tiber and Isla Tiberius. Not too pricey and plenty of great restaurants. Easy to access all the major sites from here. The riverside markets make for great evening strolls and dining.

Don't believe the hype

Well, graffiti, horrendous planning decisions with dilapidated buildings just left to decay, McDonald's next to the Colisseum, homeless everywhere, soldiers out for covid and place is so big you miss all the warpaint spots you hear about and just roam the same old, same old streets.
Manchester beats ir hands down.
Overpriced pretty crap food and the little nibbles they put down with your drink cost the earth.
Wouldn't go again. Try anywhere else in Italy.

Beautiful area!
Sep 2020
Trastevere is the most traditional part of Rome. A fantastic place next to Isla Tiberina (also beautiful place!!) In Trastevere except from traditional italian cuisine restaurants, lovely bars and tratorias, you can find lovely old churches and picturesque areas for a drink or only a picture!!!
We would definitely go back to Trastevere.
