Trastevere the dense area across the river, is considered by many to be Rome's most authentic neighborhood, teeming with street life and overflowing with local color. At night, both natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants. The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people.
Step outside your door and find Baroque fountains, medieval churches, Imperial Roman temples and the shops, restaurants and people which lead people to call Rome a big "village". Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses.
Just to the north of Trastevere is the medieval Borgo neighborhood, characterized by the powerful presence of the Vatican City and Castel S. Angelo. Both areas are ideal for those who want their stay in Rome to have more of a local flavor. Cross the river and in five minute walk you reach Piazza Navona and Piazza Venezia.

I am a bilingual freelance web-designer, owner of Ancient Trastevere Bed & Breakfast. Ancient Trastevere has been one of the first registered B&B's to open in Rome many years ago, I have hosted a large number of tourists ever since and have proudly run the B&B with professionality and familiarity. I do my best to make my guests feel at home and try to be helpful with indications, home-made maps and restaurant suggestions, at the same time offering total privacy. You can find positive reviews of the B&B in renown travel reviews websites.
I have two accomodations listed on Airbnb: "The Suite" (self-catering room) and "The Loft" (self-catering mini flat), both in the same charming location: An eccentric and unique apartment inside an elegant Eighteenth-Century palazzo, adorned with frescoes, fountains, marble walls, terracotta floors, ceilings with beams and a beautiful view on the Farnesina garden.
