Get ready to discover Trastevere, one of the most atmospheric suburbs in the Italian capital, on this tour around Rome. If the hustle and bustle of the city centre doesn't win you over, Trastevere in Rome is sure to sweep you away! Picturesque, quaint, and whimsical enough to melt the hardest of hearts, this neighbourhood is a favourite among locals for a very good reason.
Meet your local guide, and set off from the banks of Tiber Island, stopping to admire the Church of San Bartholomeo, before strolling over stone Cestius Bridge. Grab the chance to taste ‘grattachecca’, a delicious type of sorbet that is made by hand in a little kiosk on the banks of the river - can't get more local than that, and this stuff is guaranteed to redefine your idea of ice cream! Stroll with your Rome guide 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 washing lines.
Walk through the labyrinth alleys, snapping quintessential Rome pictures, and learning about some of the best places to revisit later, from nightclubs to the family-run food and drink ‘osterias’.
Arrive at the Basilica of Santa Cecilia, built on the place where the Roman martyr Cecilia died in the year 220. Hers is a fascinating local legend that you'll learn all about from your local guide on this Trastevere tour in Rome. Continue on, walking along cobblestone streets, to reach the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the heart of the neighbourhood, and a great place to witness everyday life during this walking tour of Rome.
Grab a seat on a park bench, 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 (as if you could possibly miss that chance!), which is famous for being one of the best in town.
After filling up on treats, this Rome tour heads 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 your Rome city tour at the Renaissance Ponte Sisto, Sixtus Bridge, where you can easily walk back to the centre of the city, or head back into Trastevere to continue exploring this stunning Rome suburb.
