Trastevere


JMA_Rome_01_Trastevere


Trastevere is a part of Rome, on the west bank of the Tiber, south of Vatican City. In Latin, it was called trans Tiberim that means ‘beyond the Tiber‘. In the ancient past, it was populated by the poorest. Today it is considered the oldest part of Rome and is very popular with Romans and tourists.

During our trip to Rome, we just walked around the streets. We stopped only to eat ice cream. A friend of mine whose mother is living in Rome, told me once that each time he is visiting her, he goes out with friends there to spend an evening and enjoy a good meal. Visiting Trastevere is simply on the must-do list.
