Trastevere is one of the most distinctive and picturesque areas of Rome, where you can experience the “real” side of the city. It is full of taverns where you can taste typical Roman cooking, visit art galleries, street artists, cafés, pubs, bars, artisan workshops and all kinds of stalls. The large open air market Porta Portese (open every Sunday) is very famous and you will see a great variety of products on sale.
The central position of Trastevere allows you to reach any part of Rome in a matter of minutes with public transport. The “blonde” river Tevere is a short walk away, with its beautiful Tiber Island, and where one of the oldest and most beautiful hospitals Fatebenefratelli can be found, which dates back to the 10th Century, as well as a small village with the stunning San Giovanni Calibita church. By crossing the Garibaldi bridge from Trastevere, you can easily get to Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Farnese, the Fori Imperiali and the Colosseum on foot.
