Mazy cobblestone streets, sprawling piazzas, humble restaurants – to fall head over heels in love with Trastevere doesn't take much in the way of persuasion. The neighborhood's working-class roots are proudly on display along every winding alleyway, from the artisan craftsmen selling their wares to the family-fun pizzerias. That Trastevere is special is no secret: in the evenings, visitors and residents flock from all over Rome to eat a casual dinner in an old-fashioned trattoria or enjoy a glass of wine or three in a bustling bar. They're there for good reason, as the Trastevere is hard to beat for food, drink, and general merriment. However, explore the neighborhood the next day and you'll quickly realize that many of the evening revelers are either at work or have headed back across the Tiber to see the sights. In their absence, you can take in the mosaics and frescoes in the Basilica di Santa Maria and Basilica di Santa Cecilia at a more leisurely pace than in and around Trevi and the city center. You can also enjoy some of the very best panoramas of the city from the top of Gianicolo, Rome's so-called 'eighth hill' and the second highest in the city.
