There is nowhere I would rather be than in the streets of Trastevere. Just wandering... Looking ... Feeling. Trastevere encompasses everything I want in Roma. Great food, great ambiance, I would never stay any where else in Roma.

You hear so much about the special atmosphere of Trastevere... and this may be correct on a warm summer evening with a vibrant outdoor life. In other seasons, it is a quite uneventful quarter with some nice small restaurants but otherwise shabby 'chic' (?) appearance.Stroll around in the small cobble streets, but then move on.

Nice zone to visit in Rome. Full of small restaurants and bars. Don't bring a suitcase because the pavement is made with old stones and it's very difficult to walking around.

We wandered around Trastevere and enjoyed the atmosphere and many bars and cafes. It has a village feel to the place and is pleasant to walk around. Lots of street vendors selling jewellery etc.

Me and my boyfriend were in Rome for a few days last week. We found out about this neighbourhood through a friend and called to it on the last day of our trip. We fell in love with it, it was cheap, lots of places to eat and drink and lovely little cobbled streets. There's an amazing gelato place we... More

This is a great neighborhood to just get lost in. Great little shod to poke around and cozy cafes to stop and have a tiramisu and cappuccino to refuel and stroll some more.

Loved it here. Our apartment was in the heart of a Trastevere. It was very eclectic, bohemian and hip. Fantastic bars, restaurants and street entertainment in the Piazza. So easy to walk to everywhere from here. Had we not been staying there - I'm not sure we would have taken the time to visit but we loved it there as... More

Best way to enjoy Trastevere is to stroll through its multiple narrow streets and sit down at one of the amazing places (check out la prosciutteria 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.
