Just across the Tiber River from the historical center, Trastevere was the neighborhood where foreigners and worshipers of foreign cults dwelled during early Roman times. Its charming maze of medieval streets and picturesque squares make it the ideal setting to discover Rome’s growth and development through ancient, medieval, and modern times. Along the way we will visit churches like the Basilica of Santa Cecilia, which was built on the ruins of ancient Roman houses, and Santa Maria Trastevere, with its intricate Cosmati floors and richly decorated mosaic apse. Time permitting, we will climb the Janiculum Hill beside Trastevere for a visit to the Fontanone, a Baroque era fountain, and for views over the city’s skyline.
