Summary of The Day: Get ready to discover Trastevere, one of the most atmospheric neighborhoods in the Italian capital. If the hustle and bustle of Rome doesn't win you over, Trastevere is sure to sweep you off your feet! Picturesque, quaint, and whimsical enough to melt the hardest of hearts, this neighborhood is a favorite among locals for a very good reason.
Meet your local guide, and set off from the banks of Tiber Island, stopping to admire the Church of San Bartholomeo before walking over Cestius Bridge. Don't miss the chance to taste grattachecca, a delicious handmade sorbet sold at little stands along the banks of the river - it doesn't get any more local than this. Stroll with your guide through Trastevere, where trendy nightclubs and art galleries are juxtaposed with local shops and washing lines.
We'll visit the Basilica of Santa Cecilia, built on the place where the Roman martyr Cecilia died in the year 220. Your local guide will fill you in on all the details of her intriguing story. Just outside the basilica is the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the heart of the neighborhood and a great place to witness everyday life.
Grab a seat on a park bench, admire the 12th-century mosaics, and soak up the atmosphere. Be sure to sample some of the specialties at the nearby bakery.
After filling up on treats, we'll make our way to Piazza Trilussa, one of Trastevere's most popular hangouts, at the heart of which stands the Acqua Paola Fountain. Once fed by the Trajan Aqueduct, the fountain is now is a popular place to catch up with neighborhood friends.
Our walking tour of Trastevere ends at the Ponte Sisto, or Sixtus Bridge, where you can easily walk back to the center of the city, or head back into Trastevere for a more in-depth exploration of the endlessly fascinating neighborhood.
