    Sadly our stay in Trastevere didn't go well. It started off as hoped. The streets are very narrow, with shops, bars and restaurants that are reasonably priced and better value than the city centre. At night, the place seems to be more dangerous to walk around. On returning to our apartment on the 2nd day we found it had been broken into and robbed. Hopefully, this was an isolated incident but on a return to Rome we'd stay in a different area.

    Really enjoyed our day in this part of Rome. Lots of casual restaurants with good people watching opportunities. Great place to spend some time when you're over saturated with old churches, temples and tourists. Nothing really touristy but good food and a good time.

    We were staying a short distance away, across the Tiber River near Campo de Fiori. Restaurants in Trastevere are far more reasonably priced with delicious Italian fare. The atmosphere is vibrant, with many Italians also dining here - unlike the touristy parts of Rome which are very overpriced.

    We have visited Rome 4 times now and always go back to this area of an evening to eat. The small lanes and plentiful restaurants make it a great place to visit.

    I expected much more from the city than I saw. Wasn't really worth the walk from Rome. Didn't enjoy the meal at one of the millions of restaurants there. Very aggressive host basically made us sit and eat.

    Absolutely loved this quiet little town just across the river from super busy Rome. We stayed near Campo di Fiori and it was a very quick 5 minute walk over the Ponte Sisto foot bridge and we were transported away from the hustle and noise. We went early in the day one morning to walk the streets of town, but our real goal was to follow the Garabaldi passageway to higher ground for GREAT views back on the city. Keep walking uphill til the Manfredi lighthouse and you pass many photo ops along tree lined streets. Coming back to Trastevere at night is a whole new experience. The place lights up with many EXCELLENT bars and restaurants that are booming with life til late in the evening even on weeknights. There are street performers and vendors too but they don't hassle you. We loved it so much after night one, we're headed back for another pass tonight! My tip: The food at Tonnarello is fantastic and reasonably priced.

    Narrow, cobblestoned streets with quaint restaurants. We had the best dinner ever at a small, outside table. We enjoyed a beautiful Italian night after a long day of sight-seeing in Rome.

    We had a ton of fun walking around this area. Also the food over in this area is wonderful. Make time to stroll and enjoy the atmosphere.

    Here you can wander for hours and just take in the sites and sounds of Rome. Does not feel touristy and you can actually relax here.

    We stayed 2 nights in this section. They have a good flea market at Porta Portese on Sunday . This is a cheaper section of Rome to get a hotel and stay at . The Trastevere train station goes to and from Rome Airport. The area is served by a tram to all the sites.

    From our Hotel this was just a ten minute walk. Shops, bars and resteraunts make up this old area of the City. Great place

    The Travestere area has a very fun vibe. We walked there after visiting the Campo di' Fiori market, and were glad we did! Lots of good restaurants, more reasonably priced than Rome, and fun unique shops. Be sure to stop by Guaytamelli - is it the coolest little shop in Trastevere on Via del Moro #59. They have compasses, maps, globes, jewelry and other collectibles, and they wrap and seal the packages with wax initials. We found several presents for family members here.

    We walked to the Trastevere every night to amble through the quaint cobbled streets and large volume of great restaurants and little bars. The locals are all friendly and welcome you into the area with great welcome. You can easily spend the whole evening there.

    All of your good experiences may fly away while to try to reach Trastevere, or trying to come back to city center.Along with your money, personal belongings, wallet..etc. The bus line H is an ambush point of pickpockets. Apparently this is known to people of Rome, and to the police but they don't seem to care about it. The bus H works between Trastevere and Roma Termini. Also bus 40 and 64 are known to be dangerous. Metro lines A & B are very dangerous for tourists, and there are organized crime groups functioning. Watch for groups of little children, which draw less attention, and hard to catch because they split the money among themselves, and you cannot use force on them since they are children.

    Restaurants, cafes, bars and gelaterias. Full of life at night but you can go for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great place to stay if you dont mind the noisy street. Very beautiful.

    It's hard to choose where to sit and eat bruschetta and drink a glass of wine in this bustling area with street entertainment. It gets noisier as the evening goes on.

    As beautiful as expected. Each of the five towns are unique. Some hikers said a trail was 5 hours between towns.

    We visited this part of Rome whilst on a bike tour. Is really worthwhile to see as the small streets and little restaurants have a completely different feel to the Rome city centre.

    On the edge but tourist friendly place to visit, great live entertainment as well as people watching. Eclectic mix of bars and restaurants.

    Trastevere is the 'lived in' Rome, worn around the edges and, for the present, unspoiled by tourism. Modern Romans live and work here, there are few obvious tourist areas, but the renaissance is here - look for the Basilica Santa Maria, Villa Farnesina with its frescoes and garden, and the Palazzo Corsini opposite has paintings by Caravaggio, Rubens and Van Dyck. Go and visit, but tread lightly, it is already changing.
