The Basics

Many of Trastevere’s narrow streets are closed to traffic, so the best way to explore this ancient Roman neighborhood is by getting off the beaten path with a guided walking tour—though Vespa scooter and Segway tours are also fun options. Trastevere is famous for its excellent cuisine, so consider taking a food tour to discover traditional Roman dishes, Italian wines, and open-air food markets. Alternatively, tour after dark to rub elbows with young Romans out for a night on the town.

We booked this tour on our first Fay in Rome. We enjoyed our time with Antonia, it was like being introduced to Rome by a friend or family member. This to her was a great way to be introduced to traditional Roman food and get an orientation of the city and food history.

Small-Group Rome Food Walking Tour: Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori, Jewish Ghetto
The tour was fantastic. Valeria was very knowledgeable of Roman food and showed us many authentic foods. A highlight for me was the market where she showed us local vegetable, meat, and cheese specialties. The food we ate at the restaurants had the ingredients we discussed at the market. My only regret is doing this on our last day in Rome, so we didn't have time to go back and use our new knowledge.

A Taste of Rome PRIVATE Food Tour in Trastevere District
Gabriele was the most amazing guide we could have had. It was more like spending an evening chatting with your best friend than a tour guide experience. And the fact that we learned so many things about the history of the area and the food was icing on the cake. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you again, Gabriele!

What a lovely experience. Daniella was a wonderful host, she was knowledgeable and fun. We had a history lesson and food tasting experience. I am so happy we took the tour in our first days here it enhance the remainder of our stay in Roma. It is easy walking, small group so the pace is nice and the conversation and discussion about either the food or the sites along the way was great for the entire group. Thank you

Anastasia was AMAZING! I had such an amazing time on the tour with her. It was my 3rd time in Rome but I still learned so many new things from her. The whole experience was a pleasure and the food was delicious. I definitely recommend you arrive ready to eat and drink a lot of good food and wine.

Ghetto by Ben was excellent

Rome Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere Tour
Ben was an excellent tour guide with an incredible amount of knowledge about the Rome Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere. He contacted us with plenty of time due to the change in meeting location because of the giant Christmas tree at the original meeting location. What really surprised us was we were the only ones on the tour, so we received a private tour. How awesome is that!!!

Amanda a gifted storyteller in Rome

Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere Experience
My kids and I loved Amanda. She is a very passionate historian and a gifted storyteller. She perfectly knew how to get my kids' attention. Even my daughter of 14 who doesn't like history too much complimented her with a big smile for being the best guide we had in Rome. A pity we didnt't know Amanda and Carpe Diem before. I will definitely recommend you to others!

Valeria was wonderful…so knowledgeable, funny, and had lovely personal stories to share. She also made sure I had food options at almost every stop, as I don’t eat most of the traditional foods known to Rome. Lovely small group of folks on the tour.

When to Get There

Trastevere is delightful to explore all year round, though the neighborhood is best appreciated when the weather is mild. For a unique look into one of the most lively neighborhoods in the Eternal City, take a leisurely stroll by night. Like much of Rome, the area gets crowded in summer.

Caravaggio in Trastevere

In the early 17th century, Caravaggio was commissioned to paint “The Death of the Virgin” for the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Scala in Trastevere. The master painter’s realistic depiction of the Virgin as swollen and bare-legged was considered blasphemous, and the parish rejected his work. It now hangs in the Louvre in Paris.
