TRASTEVERE TOUR – ROME GUIDES

The Trastevere Tour offers you the opportunity to visit a Rome far away from the modern chaos and confusion. Trastevere is a very special district, where the inhabitants consider themselves first Trasteverini and only later Roman citizens. You will love the atmosphere of this corner of Rome!

The Trastevere Tour will start from the monument dedicated to the Roman poet Belli: the Trasteverini beloved him so much that they erected the statue with his effigy at their own expense.

After a brief look at the Church of San Crisogono, restored by the powerful Cardinal Scipione Borghese, we will head towards Santa Maria in Trastevere. Inside, the mosaic apse, the icon of the Madonna della Clemenza (6th century), the wooden ceiling by Domenichino and the Avila Chapel, a jewel of Baroque perspective, stand out.

After a short walk, we will be hypnotized in front of the Ecstasy of Blessed Ludovica Albertoni, the masterpiece of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. To admire other stunning works by Bernini, you could choose the Borghese Gallery Tour offered by Rome Guides.

Finally, we will conclude our stroll in the Church of Santa Cecilia: the church holds gems as the extraordinary statue of Stefano Maderno and the mosaic apse depicting Pope Pascal I.

Under the floor of the church there is a vast series of underground rooms, which ends in the admirable crypt renovated in the 20th Century.

In the morning, at specific times, it will also be possible to visit the frescoes by Pietro Cavallini, depicting the Last Judgement.
