Discover Trastevere, one of the most atmospheric suburbs in Rome. Set off from the banks of Tiber Island, stopping to admire the Basilica of St Bartholomew, before strolling over stone Cestius Bridge and wandering the labyrinth streets of Trastevere.
What to Expect
Stroll through Trastevere, a neighborhood that is in the throws of change, where the best nightclubs and trendy art galleries stand side-by-side with buildings strung with lines of washing.
Arrive at the Basilica of Santa Cecilia, built on the place where the Roman martyr Cecilia died in the year 220. Continue on, walking along cobblestone streets to reach the Piazza Santa Maria, the heart of the neighborhood, and a great place to witness everyday life.
Grab a seat on a park bench, throw a coin into the fountain, admire the square’s wealth of 12th-century mosaics, and soak up the atmosphere of this spot. Don’t miss the chance to sample some of the specialties from the nearby bakery, which is famous as being one of the best in town.
After filling up on treats, head to Piazza Trilussa, one of Trastevere’s most popular spots. The Acqua Paola fountain, which was originally fed by the Trajan Aqueduct, sits at the heart of this square and is a popular meeting point for young locals.
After a morning of exploration, end the tour at the Renaissance Ponte Sisto, Sixtus Bridge, where you can easily walk back to the center of the city, or head back into Trastevere to continue exploring this suburb on your own.
