Rome Nightlife Trastevere

By walking along the cobblestoned streets of Rome, you’ll be mesmerized by the history and vitality of some peculiar areas. Born as a very humble neighborhood, Trastevere has by now established its charm and value in the Eternal City. The name comes from the Latin “Trans Tiberim”, which means “beyond the Tiber”, as it’s located right next to the river. This area’s main source of revenue used to come from artisans and merchants who produced and sold their own products. Nowadays, younger generations took over the neighborhood and the narrow streets of Trastevere, showing curious tourists a mix of old and new.
