About this tour
Across Rome’s Tiber river lies a former working-class neighbourhood that today is one of the city’s most beautiful hangouts and best places to stay in Rome. This neighbourhood is named Trastevere because it was built on the opposite side of Palatine Hill, where Romulus founded Rome, so Trastevere literally means Over the Tiber (in the middle of the river, there is a little island, don’t forget it). The ruins of a Roman firemen barrack are still now visible. Discover the neighbourhood of Trastevere in Rome by booking this free walking tour designed by a local tour guide. Enjoy a pleasant stroll through the picturesque, cobblestone alleys of one of the most charming areas in Rome at a leisurely pace. Lining the cobblestone streets of Trastevere are many of Rome’s best restaurants and pizzerias tucked away inside charming medieval buildings. Here’s how to see Rome’s most picturesque streets with my self-guided Trastevere walking tour.
