Top 20 Trastevere, Rome vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Crossing over the Ponte Sisto at sunrise is one of Rome's greatest pleasures, not least because it takes you into Trastevere, the heart of medieval Rome. Today the area is home to an eclectic variety of characters, ranging from longstanding Roman families and foreign students to pasta obsessives in search of the perfect cacio e pepe. Head southeast towards Piazza di Santa Cecilia, home to one of Rome's most elegant basilicas. Make sure to find the nun in the bookshop and pay a couple of euros to gain access to the bewitching little crypt downstairs which has Roman ruins, medieval frescos and a Renaissance chapel.
