Trastevere is the most authentic neighbourhood in Rome. The old inhabitants of this picturesque part of the city considered themselves the most genuine Romans.
In Trastevere, the area “across the Tiber”, it is still possible to catch glimpses and moments of everyday life that belong to previous decades, despite the fact that it has become a popular tourist destination. In Italy, there are few places in such touristic destinations that retain their true identity. An old Roman woman staring out of her window, clothes drying in a narrow alley, or an old Vespa noisily speeding past pedestrians are not uncommon sights in Trastevere.
