Get ready to discover Trastevere, one of the most atmospheric suburbs in the Italian capital, during this walking tour in Rome. Set off from the banks of Tiber Island, stopping to admire the Church of San Bartholomeo, before strolling over stone Cestius Bridge.

Grab the chance to taste 'grattachecca', a delicious type of sorbet that is made by hand in a little kiosk on the banks of the river. This is guaranteed to redefine your idea of ice cream! Stroll through Trastevere, a neighborhood that is in the throws of change, where the best nightclubs and trendy art galleries stand side-by-side with buildings strung with lines of washing.

Walk through the labyrinthine alleys, snapping quintessential pictures of the city, and learn about some of the best places to revisit later, from nightclubs, to the family-run food and drink 'osterias'.

Arrive at the Basilica of Santa Cecilia, built on the place where the Roman martyr Cecilia died in the year 220. Legend has it that her body was discovered here in 1600 completely intact and untouched by time. Continue on, walking along cobblestone streets to reach the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the heart of the neighbourhood, and a great place to witness everyday life.

Grab a seat on a park bench, admire the square's wealth of 12th-century mosaics and soak up the atmosphere of this spot. Don't miss the chance to sample some of the specialties from the nearby bakery, which is famous as being one of the best in town.

After filling up on treats, head to Piazza Trilussa, one of Trastevere's most popular spots. The Acqua Paola fountain, which was originally fed by the Trajan Aqueduct, sits at the heart of this square and is a popular meeting point for young locals.

After a morning of exploration, end the tour at the Renaissance Ponte Sisto, Sixtus Bridge, where you can easily walk back to the centre of the city, or head back into Trastevere to continue exploring this suburb on your own.
