Trastevere...a hidden gem in Roma!

On the west bank of the river Tiber, south of Vatican city, one can enjoy the charming and cozy flair of the district Trastevere. The name means literally "beyond the Tiber". Here one may just take a breath from the busy city center of Rome and discover a Roman area, which eleoved from the workers quarter to the most international district of Rome through the years.

Yummy restaurants, old bakeries for sweets and pizzas, small shops turn the walk though the narrow streets and colourful buildings of Trastevereinto a great time....

Two of the most ancient churches in Rome, the Basilica di Santa Maria , and the Santa Cecilia, are located here:
