Private Walking Tours of the Trastevere district of Rome with local expert Rome tour guides to discover a city within a city
Private Rome Walking Tours of Trastevere & the Villa Farnesina provide a walk through the streets of this charismatic neighbourhood of central Rome where the Roman folklore is still alive, where the laundry is still hanging from one window to another. And where the only Romans left in Rome live!
Explore the cobbled streets and hidden alleys on Rome's left bank on our private Rome walking tours of Trastevere. We'll stop to visit the beautiful church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, probably the first church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It's facade is all glittering with ancient mosaics.
And then to the Villa Farnesina: a magnificent suburban residence built in the 16th century for Agostino Chigi, the banker of the popes. In his garden he used to entertain cardinals, artists and men of letters. Inside the villa are paintings by the great Raffaello Sanzio. After the villa we cross the Tiber on the famous Sistine bridge from where it is possible to admire the cupolone (St. Peter's dome), and walking along the historical via Giulia our private Rome walking tours of Trastevere will finish in Piazza Farnese that's occupied by the imposing palace built for the Farnese family by Michelangelo and other architects.
