“Trastevere is my new favorite place in Rome: Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

All of the previous reviews have it right: Rome is so huge and important and old and impressive. In this piazza, you can picture yourself living here, just as you are. Suddenly, for the first time in your trip, you fell like you belong here.

It's homey, charming, cozy, romantic, adventurous, my new favorite place.

The transportation is terrible: There are a couple of trams that come near here, but you'll get hopelessly lost trying to find the tram stop or the piazza from a tram stop. Best to just walk over the Sisto bridge and head toward the piazza. You'll feel safe here, and the window shopping is a delight. Don't miss Ciak: An amazing family restaurant;. Totally authentic roman cooking, almost no english, fabulous.

At night there might be a few immigrants hawking their wears, which makes it feel festive. Local kids (nice ones) hang out here: It's a real neighborhood, unlike so much of rome that has surrendered to the almighty euro and tourist attractions.

Don't even think of trying to take the bus there: We were lost for hours. Get a cab if you have the name of a restaurant, but make sure you wander until you find this piazza: Our B&B owner was correct: The restaurants are so much better, and so much cheaper in Trastevere.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013

We visited the square on a few occasions - plenty of bars/restaurants and live music. Very quaint and a nice way to see in the afternoon.

“Very nice little square ”

Lovely little square surrounded by bars and restaurants and the church. Go here just at the end of the afternoon to have an aperitif.
