One of the districts I always try to visit in Rome is Trastevere. Located just beyond the Tiber River this area is a perfect alternative to the busy, historic sights (that are still great and I love seeing them every time I’m around). It is also the most bohemian of Rome’s neighborhoods, being the multicultural center of the city and also the poorest district for centuries. Now Rome Trastevere is reborning at a very fast pace and is the place where both locals and tourists head for a night out.
Bohemian Rome Trastevere
While in the night it’s a bustling area, the day in Trastevere in completely different. The life goes by very slowly, no one is in hurry, people take time to sit over a cup of coffee and a delicious meal (and this place is full of various restaurants and bars serving the best what Italian cuisine has to offer!). Quirky little shops are hidden behind the plant screen, the laundry is hanging above, a really good street art examples can be found around. A perfect place to hang out in and enjoy the vibe of bohemian Rome!

Even if a lot has changed in Rome Trastevere since my last visit there in 2008 it still is the most unique and authentic neighborhood in the city, the true bohemian Rome, at least for me. More and more tourists come that way, slowly taking away its charm, but it’s far from being yet another soulless tourist attraction. It’s a pure pleasure to get lost in the labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets or to climb to one of the surrounding hills to admire the breathtaking panorama of the city. But the best thing about Rome Trastevere is just to sit down in one of the cafes and look at the slow life going by. Even if you have only one day in Rome it’s worth to visit Trastevere!
