This on-the-river neighborhood rises with the sun and never slows down. Cobblestone pathways wind through Trastevere’s ivy-covered trattorias and weathering apartments, while umbrella-shaded outdoor cafes line alleyways filled with tattoo shops and microbreweries. By day, Trastevere exudes subtle sophistication as occupants count the legs on their wine glasses. As evening approaches, street performers, scruffy poets, bearded skateboarders, and exuberant merry-makers flood Trastevere’s countless clubs, bars, and piazzas in fits of reckless abandon and indiscreet enthusiasm.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
A Bohemian Enclave Across the River from Rome's Ruins
It's what you imagine Rome to be: narrow streets, old little houses, romantic piazzas (with warm orange street lights at night!), little cafes and restaurants, Roman lifestyle - and of course, some tourists. It's a nice mixture of "real'"and "touristy" Rome, and definitely very picturesque."
After Dusk and Into the Next Day
Trastevere is a beautiful and typical neighborhood, with plenty of historical beauties such as Santa Maria in Trastevere, Santa Cecilia, and Ponte Sisto. It's very vibrant at night, with bars and excellent restaurants."
