The Basics

Many of Trastevere’s narrow streets are closed to traffic, so the best way to explore this ancient Roman neighborhood is by getting off the beaten path with a guided walking tour—though Vespa scooter and Segway tours are also fun options. Trastevere is famous for its excellent cuisine, so consider taking a food tour to discover traditional Roman dishes, Italian wines, and open-air food markets. Alternatively, tour after dark to rub elbows with young Romans out for a night on the town.

Food, Glorious Food
Daniella was charming, knowledgable, engaging, and gracious. She lead us through an entire journey of history, art, gossip, and food, glorious food. I learned a lot, which given I have written a cookbook, do food blogging, create food pairings for Molesini Wine Club, and spent 6 years as a food writer for magazines, is amazing. I highly recommend this tour.

Ghetto by Ben was excellent

Rome Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere Tour
Ben was an excellent tour guide with an incredible amount of knowledge about the Rome Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere. He contacted us with plenty of time due to the change in meeting location because of the giant Christmas tree at the original meeting location. What really surprised us was we were the only ones on the tour, so we received a private tour. How awesome is that!!!

Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere Experience
My kids and I loved Amanda. She is a very passionate historian and a gifted storyteller. She perfectly knew how to get my kids' attention. Even my daughter of 14 who doesn't like history too much complimented her with a big smile for being the best guide we had in Rome. A pity we didnt't know Amanda and Carpe Diem before. I will definitely recommend you to others!

I learnt a lot of new things from my guide. She spoke good english and did the tour although I was the only participant. Many good tips were received, everything from foods/restaurants to more sightseeing alternatives. Splendid!

Small-Group Rome Food Walking Tour: Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori, Jewish Ghetto
This was a most amazing experience from start to finish! Lisa, our guide was so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The food was sublime. The Lazio Chardonnay the best white wine I've tasted. It was my birthday and Lisa arranged a little celebration in one of the restaurants - thank you once again. If you want to experience real Roman food, take this tour. My husband and I cannot recommend it highly enough: it was just yummy.

Small-Group Rome Food Walking Tour: Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori, Jewish Ghetto
We'd taken food walking tours before, but didn't expect to eat this much! It was fantastic! We stopped in 5 different places, sampling delicious local food, ending with gelato. We walked from Campo de' Fiori and ended in Trastevere. We never would have gotten to the beautiful neighborhood of Trastevere were it not for this tour. Well worth the price.

Hidden Rome Food Tour in Trastevere with Dinner and Wine
Our food tour in Trastevere was led by Dimitri. We were not sure our two teenaged grandsons would like the foods presented on this tour but we were happily surprised. Everything was delicious and enjoyed by us all. At each stop along tour we were met by friendly people who made us feel welcome. The dinner was delicious and a pleasant end to a lovely evening. We would definitely recommend this tour and Dimitri to friends and family.

When to Get There

Trastevere is delightful to explore all year round, though the neighborhood is best appreciated when the weather is mild. For a unique look into one of the most lively neighborhoods in the Eternal City, take a leisurely stroll by night. Like much of Rome, the area gets crowded in summer.

Caravaggio in Trastevere

In the early 17th century, Caravaggio was commissioned to paint “The Death of the Virgin” for the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Scala in Trastevere. The master painter’s realistic depiction of the Virgin as swollen and bare-legged was considered blasphemous, and the parish rejected his work. It now hangs in the Louvre in Paris.
