Things to see in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches in Rome, dating back to at least the 4th century. The current structure has been in place since the 12th century, and its stunning golden mosaics have left visitors awe-struck ever since. Make your way to the bustling Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere square at night to appreciate the church’s façade when lit up. Heading north along the Tiber you’ll find Villa Farnesina, home to several remarkable frescoes by a variety of renowned artists, most notably Raphael. Perfect for an inspiring stroll, this lavish villa offers a lesser-known glimpse into the richness of Renaissance art and will leave you feeling enlightened. To elevate yourself in the literal sense, take 20 minutes to climb the Janiculum, the second-highest hill in Rome. From this vantage point, enjoy a memorable view over the domes and rooftops of the Eternal City.

Good for couples

Rome has long been a favorite destination for couples, and a stay in Trastevere offers the chance to explore some of the city’s most romantic hidden corners. You’ll never tire of wandering the district’s winding streets—quaint and narrow, they come alive after dark as homes and cafés light up and the spirited chatter of patrons follows you into the night. Restaurants serving delicious Italian pasta, pizza, and gelato will satisfy your palate; bars full of locals and tourists create an energetic buzz; and the many trattorias offer an authentic, cozy dining experience, washed down with a decanter of fine Italian wine.

How to get to Trastevere

Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is one of Europe’s busiest hubs, and getting to Trastevere from here couldn’t be easier. Just take the FL1 train from the airport straight to Trastevere train station to arrive in 40 minutes. From Ciampino Airport, take a bus to Laurentina, get the metro to Marconi, and hop on a bus to Trastevere. Rome is also connected to Europe’s main cities by its fantastic railway service, and from the main Termini station, you can take the FL5 train right to Trastevere. Trams and buses serve Trastevere so getting around is easy, but you’ll find the district’s walkable streets irresistible for shorter excursions.
