The beautiful Trastevere neighborhood welcomes you on the other side of the Tiber river. After the Romans captured the area, no one really wanted to built anything here and the only thing that connected this part of Rome to the rest of Italy was a small wooden bridge called ‘Pons Sublicius’. From 753–509 BC, the area belonged to Etruscans- a wealthy and civilized class of people belonging to Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria. However, the medieval history of the neighborhood is what takes center stage here.
The rustic cobbled pathways that wind around ancient homes, make for a unique walk while the buzzing nightlife of the area, is hard to ignore. The sheer number of universities present in Trastevere promise a fabulous youth culture.
- Piazza Santa Maria
- The American Academy in Rome
- The American University of Rome
- University of Waterloo School of Architecture
- Via della Luce where Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum (famous music composers) lived
- Viale Glorioso where the famous director Sergio Leone grew up
Visit the place to explore the nightlife and to see an ancient part of Rome that deserves to be explored. A small walk around the Gianicolo hill during the day, is perfect to see the small neighborhood in a nutshell.
