Full description
Discover one of the most characteristic neighborhoods of Rome on a tour of Trastevere, on the west bank of the Tiber River. Walk through the heart of Rome, beginning at the Piazza Santa Maria, where you can visit one of the oldest churches in Rome. Marvel at the 13th-century mosaics of Santa Maria in Trastevere. See the side chapels of S. Cecilia and Avila. 

Walk down the lively alleys of the former village and enter the Jewish Quarter. Pass the lovely fountain in Piazza Trilussa and learn how it once carried water from the Aqueduct of Trajan. Next, go to Tiber Island in the middle of the Tiber River. Visit the 17th-century BC Marcello Theater, commissioned by the nephew of Augustus, Marcus Marcellus.  See the Porch of Octavia, commissioned by Augustus in the 27th century BC and dedicated to his sister Octavia Minor. Next to the temples, there is a library erected by Octavia in memory of her son Marcus Claudius Marcellus.

Your next stop during the walking will be the synagogue built between 1901 and 1904. Admire its democratic design, chosen by the community as a reflection of their freedom in Rome. Then walk down Largo di Torre Argentina to see the remains of Pompey's Theatre. Discover the ruins of 4 temples in a once sacred area. End the tour on the famous square Campo de' Fiori, dominated by the statue of the poet and philosopher, Bruno Giordano. Learn how he was tried for heresy and burned at the stake in the medieval market in the 16th century. Here, have a typical Italian aperitif with a cocktail, wine, or soft drink.
