We stayed in Trastevere for a week and visited Shisha several times. The staff were very friendly and the laid back and relaxed atmosphere was the perfect antidote to long days of walking around the hot bustling streets of Rome.

We have tried a couple of shishas around Rome, but they were all decent at best. Untill we came here. Lots of different tobacco and you can buy it with natural coal (huge plus). Great flavour, cozy atmosphere and tasty drinks. If you want a...More

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

Shisha is the brainchild of Charles Barchiesi , in 2001 , with the intention of bringing in the heart of Trastevere the refined atmosphere of Arab culture . Between different specialties Egyptian , Arab and Turkish , the venue offers the opportunity to relax by smoking a hookah with friends , tasting typical drinks and cocktails of all kinds. Since the summer of 2001 to date , shisha is one of the most popular in Rome .
