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.

This side of town is beautiful, we stayed here for 4 nights in October with my partners family. I loved walking the cobbled streets and sampling the local food and wine. It is a side of town that is less touristy but very easy to get to the main attractions. Rome was very busy in October but Trastevere has a... More

Lots of places to eat, drink and shop around here. The area feels rather safe as it is quite touristy. You must beware of pickpockets. The area is great for tourists as there are plenty of different tourist attractions close by.

Great place for food and drinks. Especially for young people. There's a great walk up to the fountain and Gianicolo which overlooks Rome. There's also the church of Santa Maria. Most of all the atmosphere is great. My favorite restaurant too!!

A very popular area to dine, people watch, and stroll around. I think you should spend at least one evening here. My only quibble: because it out of the metro route, it may not be that easy to get there via public transportation. If you are going to get there at dinner time, I suggest you get a cab: it... More

Stayed at this area and it was central to everything. We stayed at Luxury Trastevere. We walk to every place from there.

This neighbourhood is just different to the rest of Rome. Mediveal tiny streets, small shops and cozy restaurants are full of locals, who are enjoying their city.

Beautiful section of Rome where the buildings have colourful character. Lovely winding streets to the top of the hill. Old churches of course and hotels in buildings that were once convents. Accessible by bus. Worth a visit and then crossing the river and making your way to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. A very enjoyable walk.

We had our hotel in this quarter of Rome and absolutely enjoyed our stay there. We went out to eat in that area every night and there were so many restaurants to choose from. One delicious looking pizza after another and no restaurant disappointed us! There are also a lot of bars and the Italians are very kind and attentive... More

This was the first neighborhood we got to explore in Rome and it was absolutely magical. The streets, the people, the river, the music, the dinner at La Scala--everything was so different from what we are used to. I would recommend it as a "must-see" place, especially on a warm summer night.

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.
