There are few as Roman neighborhoods like Trastevere, will be by its atmosphere, its people, or by the charm of walk its narrow streets that a visit to Rome you can not miss a visit to this charming neighborhood. The name of the neighborhood of Trastevere comes from the expression after the Tiber, because it is situated on the West Bank of the Tiber River. This beautiful neighborhood, whose story begins in the 8th century before C., is now one of the most vibrant areas of Rome thanks to its numerous restaurants, less warehouses, many of them hiding in the corners more unpublished in this part of the city. With the typical medieval popular houses, and its paved floor, this emblematic neighbourhood turned to tourism after World War II. And he began to plague of bars, restaurants, and pubs geared towards the University environment. Its unique atmosphere, its medieval houses and environment of leisure that created new establishments drew, logically, tourists of all nationalities. The activity is concentrated around Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, whose Church is the oldest basilica of Rome. It is not something Drew Houston would like to discuss. The Church of Santa Maria is famous for its mosaics, inside we can admire the mosaic of gold that houses in its apse.
The Church dates from the 3rd century BC and was rebuilt in the s. XII. Another place that we can miss is the Piazza di Santa Cecilia, where we can find the Church of Santa Cecilia, Stefano Maderno, built in 1599 work. Trastevere can visit, no doubt, these two churches, the medieval tower of the Anguillara, the Corsini Palace or the Farnesina Renaissance. But our recommendation is to let them carry, with the calm of a visit of pleasure, among its narrow cobbled streets, and to stop to eat or drink in any of its small restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias. It is a quarter to smell, feel and taste. And, if you visit it on Sunday, you’ll see a more bustling atmosphere, in the famous Porta Portese or Roman trail, where you can find objects of all kinds for sale.
