Trastevere Area, Rome – A delightful neighbourhood which oozes character, charm and energy

Positioned upon the west bank of the River Tiber and to the south of the Vatican City is Rome’s charming Trastevere area, a neighbourhood renowned for its authenticity and lively atmosphere. Amongst the narrow streets and medieval houses, you will find an impressive array of must see sights and attractions, all of which are definitely worthy of a visit.

Visit Galleria Borghese – One of the best small museums in the world

Located north-east of Rome’s city centre Galleria Borghese is a popular attraction amongst tourists and one of the top attractions during a short stay in the city. See famous works by the likes of Bernini, Carvaggio and Titian as you spend two hours touring the gallery. The Borghese Gallery is a great outing for all, even if you’re not an art lover.

Rome’s largest yet often over-looked public park, Villa Doria Pamphili, contains a stunning, mid- 17th century palace surrounded by garden mazes, jogging trails, fabulous fountains, a superb grotto and pine lined views of Rome from atop the Janiculum hill. Staying near here readily balances urban outings with Rome’s more tranquil, rustic side.
