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 is our 3rd trip to Rome and on each occasion we have stayed in Trastevere. This place has it all. A short walk to most attractions (although on average we walked about 10 miles a day: we like walking). Tram number 8 and bus...More

Visit for its energy!! Fun boutiques, outdoor cafes, open air markets....flower stalls everywhere. Perfect for sitting outside with a gelato and people watching.

Trastevere is like being transported to a different place and time. Beautiful cobblestone streets, ancient historic homes, The Jewish Ghetto, coffee shops and small shops. Relax, walk, breathe and take it all in. It won't disappoint.

Vibrant place with lots of restaurants, little quaint shops and bars, highly recommend the "Mirror" restaurant with great authentic Italian food and great service, this is probably the best Carbonara I have ever tasted and I guess how it should be done! We came a...More

I stayed in a hostel (Orsa Maggiore) in Trastevere so I got to see some of the neighbourhood. It's nice to see more of the local side with it's interesting shops. Not too impressed with the two restaurants I went to. (I reviewed one already).

To my understanding, there's not much going on here during the day, but at night, it's a different story altogether. There are street performers, lots of restaurants and bars open, and it just becomes a really cool place to walk around. We had dinner at...More

The Trastevere district has some authentic Italian night life, however every year I go back it does become slightly more touristy. However that being said it's still mostly an authentic Italian experience. There are some great places to eat, great places to visit, and great...More

We had a few meals at the Trastevere district during our time in Rome, and absolutely loved the vibe of this neighbourhood! It was rather quiet in the mid afternoon to early evening, but beyond 7pm, the neighbourhood was bustling (especially the restaurants!). There are...More

Trastevere is an area of Rome across the Tiber from the main area of the city. It is more residential, but there are plenty of small shops and lots of restaurants. Once you cross the river, you feel like you're in a whole different place....More

We went for a walk in trastevere one evening after hearing it is a lot more laid back that the rest of Rome. This was true, definitely suggest heading down here for some good food, try 'take your time' fantastic food and value for money.

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

We stayed at the Arco Del Lauro and it was very quiet and beautiful in that area - we loved it. It's in the northeastern portion of Trastevere I believe - close to the river and steps from very good restaurants, and within... More
Hi We are going to be in Rome for 4 days. As excited as we are about seeing all the touristy sites, we also really would like a walkable less touristy place to stay at that gives us a glance in to Roman life. In this regard we are considering Trastevere as our place to stay. My question is: Is Trastevere well connected to the transport systems that could get us to the old city and tourist places (coleseum, forum, trevi, spanish steps and vatican)? And also is it easy to get to the airport from Trastevere (we will be leaving on a Sunday). Thank you!

Hi sorry I'm only just seeing this... yes I would say Trastavere is easily accessible to all the main tourist points and has good public transport links. I hope you enjoyed your holiday
Hi - we are visiting Rome for 6 nights in February - staying in Trastevere. We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and we really would love some recommendations for a good authentic reasonably priced restaurant to eat at within Trastevere. We like good bistro, rustic food and wine.
