Battista dei Genovesi with a hospital reserved for them.

Rome Holiday Trastevere walking tourDuring our itinerary we will also see the most important squares in Trastevere: Piazza Campo dé Fiori, famous all over the world, which owes its name to the beautiful Flora, the woman loved by Pompeo , the sworn enemy of Julius Caesar, Piazza de ' Mercanti, offering one of the most fascinating view of Rome with its palaces entirely covered with ivy, Piazza Farnese, with the imposing building that actually hosts the French Embassy, Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, with the wonderful Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere which stands on the site where, in 38 B.C., a mineral oil gushed out of the ground, the mysterious "fons olei", interpreted by Christians as a sign of God’s grace would soon flow into the world (the point where the gush came out is still indicated on a step just below the altar), Piazza Sant'Egidio, housing the Museum of Rome in Trastevere, with a collection of prints, drawings, paintings and watercolours on the daily roman life.

During this walk we will tell you all the stories and anecdotes lying behind each stone and each corner of Trastevere. Did you know that in ancient times only the bridge called Sublicio was the one connecting the Trastevere area to the powerful Rome?

A stop at the Jewish ghetto will finally show you how the ruins of ancient Rome are blending with the Jewish architecture.
