The area
Neighbourhood: Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.

The Tiber River is Rome’s great river, running through the centre of the city and is crossed by more than 30 bridges.
One of the fun things to do in summer is to head down to the river bank. A long line of white tents is set up alongside the river, with pop-up bars, food, games and stalls.
Most of the activity happens in the evening when the lights sparkle across the water. However some of the bars are also serving drinks in the afternoon. We sat at one little bar that had lounge chairs spread out on the waters edge and looked down the river towards the Bridge of Angels and the Vatican in the distance.
The tents generally start to appear in early June and I believe that they last through the summer until the end of August.
Lungo Il Tevere - touted as a carnival, but just lots of tents with food and rinks, some selling market type goods
Sets of stairs lead down to the river bank at pretty regular intervals so it is easy to access the riverbank.

We liked our walk along the tiber/lungotevere in the shadow of the old trees. Watch your step, because "sidewalks" are dangerous in some places.

Some good options for picture taking ... (bridges, castel San Angelo ...).

Many bridges cross the Tiber River. You can get some fine shots of bridges or from bridges ie Castel Sant'Angelo. Not a wide river, a different perspective might be cruising along it.

The Tiber River runs through the centre of Rome, with the Vatican, Castel Sant Angelo and Trastevere on one side and the city and Colosseum on the other side.
The river is criss-crossed by bridges, some of them many centuries old.
The most famous and most beautiful bridge, with the Bernini angels is Ponte Sant Angelo. Built originally in 135AD by Emperor Hadrian, the Archangel Michael is said to have appeared here at the top of Castel Sant’Angelo, thereby ending the plague of 590AD.
Another charming bridge is Ponte Sisto, with the distinctive circular hole in the centre.
I particularly like the bridges of Ponte Fabricio and Ponte Cestio which link the ancient Jewish Quarter and Trastevere. They meet in the middle of the river on Tiber Island.
The other significant bridge to know about is Ponte Umberto I . It’s not special in its own right but it has the perfect position for taking a magical photo of the sunset with a Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica backdrop.

I embarked on my “Lungotevere walk” starting at Lungotevere Marzio. First, I took the photos of mighty Palazzo di Giustizia and Ponte Sant’Angelo at the distance. Then I strolled back and forth on the Ponte Sant’Angelo, admired magnificent Bernini’s statues again, walked around Castello San’Angelo, which I had visited last time, and of course snapped a couple of pictures of Piazza di San Pietro and Basilica di San Pietro.

Continued along the Tevere, looked at the closed Complesso di Santo Spirito, and came to the walls of the prison, Carcere di Regina Coeli: it was the place where captured allied soldiers were imprisoned during the WWII. Some of them owe their freedom to Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty, the Irish priest, who saved 6,000 lives of the allied troops and Italian Jews hiding them in the secret apartments of the Vatican and Rome.

Then I relaxed a bit at the gardens of Palazzo Corsini, took a peek at the Orto Botanico, and took my usual snapshots of lemon trees at the lovely gardens of Villa Farnesina.

And it at his point I reached my targeted destination: charming, atmospheric, cozy Trastevere…love it so much…

Tiber River is one of the popular European rivers that passes through Rome, and all visitors will see it inevitably whilst crossing its picturesque bridges. However, it looks shallow and dark a little bit at night, and never observed boats or cruise in it.

Nice river passing through Rome, I'd say you cannot miss it, saw it many times in our trips to Rome, also lots of nice bridges crossing it so plenty of places to admire it, not necesarily a must visit attraction but for sure you will come across it.

This river that bisects Rome looks lovely from a distance. Taking photos from any of the bridges that span the river a definitely worthwhile. However, I was somewhat disappointed with the detachment the river has from the rest of the city. Although I saw a walking/bike path running alongside the river, I saw no one utilizing it and between the graffiti and some unsavory looking characters lurking close to the staircases that led down to the river I felt uncomfortable to venture down. This is such a shame and a surprise as most cities (big and small) tend to incorporate a river within the urban landscape (ie: river walks, promenades). Rome seems to have neglected what could certainly be a major attraction.

Saw a lot of the river running through Rome (Italy’s third-longest) as we crossed several bridges and visited different districts in the Capital. Found some stretches could be more odorous than others – still got some good views from bridges like Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II and Ponte Garibaldi.

It is in the center of Rome, separates the two parts of the city. There are several bridges crossing the river, mostly made of stone. Some of them are very attractive f.e. Ponte Sant'Angelo.
You should go down directly to the river where is a bike and walking zone. That is a pity that Rome does not use this area, it is not in the best shape and there is neighter any attraction nor any ways where you could sit down with a cup of coffee just to see the water.
