Brief historical outline

Trastevere (from the Latin words trans Tiberim meaning ‘beyond the Tiber’) is without doubt one of the most characteristic neighbourhoods in Rome where, along narrow colourful streets and among Roman trattorias, small artisan shops and workshops, it is still possible to find the essence of the most authentic and true Rome.

Although the neighbourhood was formerly inhabited by the less wealthy social classes of Rome, today it is much sought-after, not only for its nightlife and clubs, but also because it is home of monuments, churches and artworks of great value.
