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 out trip to Rome we just walked around the streets. We stopped only to eat an ice cream. A friend of mine whose mother is living in Rome, told me lately 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.
