Tour description

Trastevere is the 13th district of Rome, known as the neighborhood on the other side of the Tevere, the medieval and bohemian neighborhood, the heart of " the march ", of the Roman scene, and yes, all that and more, it is Trastevere. But let's not stay with that façade alone, let's explore its streets, alleys and squares, where a secular soul hides, made up of nobles and unfortunates, stories of knives, bandits, heroes, mercenary captains...

Trasteverear is also going through an intricate labyrinth that has been the scene of the activities that take place near a port, commerce.... Where there was an important market and the trades that always accompany it: trattorias, inns, locandas, activities commercial and non-legal ones, such as smuggling, underworld and those of the "bad life."

Trasteverear is to walk through what was the home of intellectuals, musicians, composers and poets who, through their art, expressed the feelings of the population, where the poetic soul was satirical, fun and irreverent, with a direct focus on social issues. and cultural, reflecting without giving up entertainment.

Trastevere through restaurants, bars, trattorias and inns, and remember that November 5, 1958, in a restaurant in Trastevere where a private party for Roman high society was held, and an improvised striptease took place, which often coincided with the beginning of la dolce vita , in a symbolic way.

We will relive the wonders, the characters and the stories of this small town within Rome, the places that acted as a setting and that represent the different eras and souls of Trastevere, so that you can get to know it and live it.

Trasteverear is to travel:

§ Tiber Island

§ Piazza in Piscinula

§ Vicolo of the Athlete

§ Santa Maria in Cappella Church

§ Piazza de Mercanti

§ Piazza Santa Cecilia

§ Via del Salumi

§ Arch of Ptolemy

§ Vicolo del Buco

§ Via Lungareta

§ Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere

§ Via del Moro

§ Piazza Trilussa

§ Get Sisto

The best way to start Trastevere is to get to know the curiosities of the Tiber Island , which is not Trastevere, but eternally so close, inseparable!!!

After crossing the Tevere, we will continue our " passeggiata " in search of squares, churches, galleries, antique shops, artisans, nasons, madonellas, stumbling stones, trattorias, inns, bars, street artists, and more, much more, to through sampietrinis roads and vicolos, its walls covered in ivy, with clothes hanging on the lines, very picturesque streets full of charm.

Nothing like Trastevere to savor the most genuine Italian cuisine! …. in family-run trattorias and inns. In addition, it is possible to hear the alternation of street musicians, the genres vary from song composition to blues, jazz and improvisation with instruments created with paint buckets, empty cans, recycling material, where talent is wasted.

!! The night in Trastevere is magical !!...
