Rome, Province of Rome, 00153

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.

Private Tour - Trastevere and Villa Farnesina
Excellent tour of Trastevere and Villa Farnesina. Vincenzo was incredibly knowledgeable about art and architecture and showed / told me many things I could not have done on my own. His passion for the topics was also irreplaceable and would definitely recommend this tour!

Rome Trastevere and Villa Farnesina PRIVATE Walking Tour
We went to this tour to see the Raphael's frescoes. And we loved our tour and our guide Francesca. We met across the Tiber on "Old banks" street where the story starts. She told such a fascinating story, I think we spent the whole excursion with our mouths wide open. The villa itself is beautiful. I highly recommend the tour and especially Francesca as a guide

Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere Tour Rome
Having walked through this area many times, it was great to get deeper insight into its history. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and all of the small details that our guide Marco shared. He managed to be fun and insightful while also covering a large history and area. Note - the tour starting point references a site that non-Italians might know know so it’s good to check beforehand.

Small-Group Rome Food Walking Tour: Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori, Jewish Ghetto
The food was absolutely delicious at every stop. We also enjoyed walking through the areas that were more “off the beaten track”. Our guide, Clelia, did an excellent job at making the neighborhoods and their history come alive as well as providing great commentary about what we were eating. She was wonderful and we highly recommend this tour.

A Taste of Rome PRIVATE Food Tour in Trastevere District
Gabriele was the most amazing guide we could have had. It was more like spending an evening chatting with your best friend than a tour guide experience. And the fact that we learned so many things about the history of the area and the food was icing on the cake. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you again, Gabriele!

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.
