A special private tour of popular Rome


TRASTEVERE
The district of Trastevere covers the West bank of the Tiber river next to the Vatican hill. Being this the area of the ancient river port by the Tiberine Island, where the tour starts, foreign communities settled for their business and trade: Greeks, Syrians and Jews togheter with the carpenters, sailors, porters working at the docks. Trastevere is one of the most lively and popular parts of the city with traditional restaurants and inns called "osterie". Here you will visit the grand church of S. Cecilia, one of the few medieval ones still surviving with unique fresco paintings by Pietro Cavallini and remains of a roman noble house. Next you will reach the church of S. Crisogono, rebuilt in the Sixteen Hundreds and still showing 9 feet under the floor the original structure of the early church. At last you will discover the magnificent basilica of S. Maria, rebuilt around 110 AD reusing gigantic roman columns; its apse is decorated by a majestic mosaic of the Virgin and Jesus enthroned.
