Owner description: This busy and lively neighborhood has the look and feel of a traditional small Italian town, with people shopping, chatting, drinking espresso and going about their daily business.

Get away from the most touristy part of the city and cross the river. This is where you will find the locals hanging out. This is also where you can find most authentic restaurants and cheaper meals. This is also where you can find more grocery stores and wine stores.

Beautiful buildings and a fair few local restaurants to see here. This is real Roman life. Definitely worth a stroll on a more relaxing day.

Trastevere is nice, charming and peaceful. You can see laundry hanging out from the windows to dry (just like in "Lady and the Tramp") and if you are on a budget; this is were you should dine. Much cheaper than on the other side of the river!!

Best seen at night. Cool artists' shops, great food...it is where the locals go to eat and hang out. Visit by day and you'll see the Hebrew signs in many store windows, reminding you that the area was a Jewish ghetto. Now a must-see for the true lover of Rome..

We were told that Trastevere was the 'Left Bank' of Rome. Personally I did not find it to be that at all. Clearly it is the old quarter of Rome and has been described as being 'seedy'. Again I did not find this. It appears to be nothing than a old, residential area. Nothing remarkable but there are one or two buildings and restaurants that would not look out of place in a Sicilian Mafioso movie. We did find a good restaurant away for the tourist part of Trastevere. Word of caution, when we went the Tram service from Largo di Torre Argentina was not running and it did not look as if it had been for some time. It is however only a short walk across the bridge over the River Tiber to get to Trastavere. The banks of the Tiber did look a bit trashy and appear to be where a lot of the young people go to drink and socialise.
