Rome Trastevere is one of the cities liveliest areas. The area is separated from the heart of central Rome by the river. The Trastevere district is characterized by narrow, cobbled streets, medieval-era dwellings, and its large student population.
The heart of Trastevere is Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, a pedestrianised square piazza lined with restaurants and bars. The Trastevere area is home to an artistic community, which tends to attract American artists and other foreigners. On Sunday mornings there’s a very popular flea market held there called Porta Portese.
