A maze-like district
Venture in the intricate maze of these medieval alleys where the "common people" of Rome have always lived, from the republican to the imperial ages of the ancient Rome, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. We'll enter in some early Christian churches to admire medieval mosaics as well as baroque decoration and statues (like the Beata Ludovica Albertoni by Bernini, or the St. Cecilia by Stefano Maderno), we will see the evidence of the popular devotion and superstition still surviving today, we'll pass in front of workshops where artisans are still working today on leather of wood or iron with their hands, we'll see the streets of one of the most lively districts of the roman movida, packed with restaurants, wine-bars, pubs, pizzeria, gelato-shops where thousands of people spend their Friday and Saturday nights without any idea of the many medieval buildings that still give Trastevere its unique character. We will end our tour in Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere.

Fabio was a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. He showed us things we wouldn't have found on our own and made the experience of visiting 3 different churches interesting and informative instead of tedious.
