  • This church is well worth a visit. A little hard to find tucked away in amongst the array of small alleys and side streets. It would have to be one of my favourites in Rome and I visited them all.  more »
  • This basilica more than made up for an otherwise underwhelming visit to Trastavere. It is really stunning and peaceful and well worth a visit.  more »
  • The Church is beautiful, like many in Rome. But each one has your particularity and all are special. The Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere is beautiful on the inside, especially the ceiling, all worked up and full of details. Worth the visit!

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
