Calle en Trastevere

Trastevere es una de las zonas más coloridas de Roma y a menudo se la conoce como un "verdadero barrio romano". Su nombre se traduce como "más allá del Tíber" y se refiere a su ubicación en la orilla oeste del Tíber o Tevere en italiano. Trastevere una vez fue reclutado como un barrio privilegiado favorecido por los romanos de clase trabajadora y los viajeros que querían evitar las multitudes y empaparse de la auténtica atmósfera. Hoy se ha corrido la voz y Trastevere ya no es un bolsillo desconocido de Roma . Y aunque las rentas pueden haber subido, dentro de su laberinto de calles estrechas y piazzas centenarias, aún puede saborear la auténtica Roma y hacer sus propios descubrimientos en iglesias ocultas, tiendas Bijoux, pequeños museos y animados bares y restaurantes. . 

Aquí hay una lista de algunas de las mejores cosas que hacer en Trastevere.

Barrio del Trastevere en Roma

There's perhaps no better Roman neighborhood in which to get lost than Trastevere. Mostly laid out in the medieval era, its cobblestone streets are a picturesque warren of ochre-colored buildings, old doorways with antique doorknockers, arched passageways, flower-filled balconies and Rome's ubiquitous graffiti. It's hard to take a bad photo here.

One of the oldest churches in Rome, and one of the most beautiful, is the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere. The Basilica contains brilliant gold mosaics from the 1100s, and a nave held up by ancient columns pillaged from the Baths of Caracalla. Dedicated to a 3rd-century martyr, the nearby Church of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere is known for its elaborate crypt and a magnificent Baroque-era sculpture of the saint.

Like many neighborhoods in central Rome, Trastevere's wide piazzas are equivalent to living rooms–open spaces where locals gather to talk and where tourists can linger to soak up the ambiance. Piazza Trilussa, right on the river, often hosts concerts and performances. Piazza di San Calisto is popular with local families pushing strollers or teaching their kids to ride bikes. On a warm summer night, Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, with the facade of its namesake church all aglow, is one of the most magical–and popular–spots in Rome.

Paper thin, crispy and fresh from a wood oven, there's nothing like pizza in Rome. Order a takeaway slice during the day from La Boccaccia or sit down for an evening meal at neighborhood favorites Dar Poeta, Ivo a Trastevere or Pizzeria ai Marmi. Remember that in Italy, pizzas are made for one — with the exception of children, all parties are expected to order their own pizza. Yes, you really can eat the whole thing!

The base of the Janiculum Hill, or Gianicolo in Italian, abuts Trastevere's western edge. It was a site of rituals in the early days of Rome, then home to most of the city's flour mills. It also figured heavily in the 19th-century campaign for Italian unification. Today, the not-too-strenuous climb up the Janiculum offers some of the best views over the city, plus a chance to peek inside the gates of fancy villas, academies, and embassies.
