Trastevere charming neighborhood of Rome.
This neighborhood is a picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber. The area escaped the grand developments which changed the face of central Rome, and is a charming place to wander, eat or relax. Trastevere (TrasTEVeh-ray) is named for its position ‘over the Tiber’. Separated from the heart of central Rome by the river, the area retained its narrow lanes and working-class population when the rest of Rome began its nineteenth-century expansion.
Trastevere Rome Italy
The most charming neighborhood in all of Rome is Trastevere. Though some say the neighborhood is slowly losing its Italian touch due to the increasing popularity of American and international student life, Romans still consider it one of the most beautiful areas in the Eternal City. As you lose yourself down the winding cobblestone streets and dive into an authentic Roman trattoria, you’ll soon discover why everyone falls in love with this wonderfull area ‘just across the Tiber’ as its name suggests.
St.Maria in Trastevere heart of Rome
Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere: This square is the heartbeat of life in the villagelike section of Trastevere with its maze of narrow, cobbled alleyways. Dominating the square is the church of Santa Maria, famous for its 12th-century mosaics by Pietro Cavallini. At night the fountain in the center, created by Carlo Fontana in 1692, is a popular meeting place on the floodlit square.
The only downside to being in Trastevere is that everyone wants to be there. That said, as Trastevere can be a bit noisy at night because of its reputation and attractiveness towards nightlife, finding a quiet place to stay can be challenging. Usually the trick is to stay away from the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere and Piazza Trilussa areas as these places are covered with bars and pubs. Where ever there are pubs, there is noise. The best places to stay are either on the other side of Viale Trastevere or moving up on the Tram 8 line further up in the newer parts of Trastevere. Granted, some of these spots are not as charming, but if noise is an issue for you, then you won’t have trouble sleeping here. Two quiet, clean and affordable hotels in the area are BDB Luxury Rooms Trastevere and Hotel Antico Borgo di Trastevere.
This popular area is literally sprawling with places to grab an early evening drink or after dinner cocktail. Whether you feel like enjoying a glass of wine while marveling at the people passing by at Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere or you’re looking for a little more lively action, Trastevere has something for all walks of life.
