maze-like districts full of life.
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 and wrought iron, we'll see the streets of these two lively districts 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 surround them. Trastevere ŵas also the first Jewish settlement before the so called Ghetto which we will also visit. You'll experience some roman jewish history and life-style

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.
