Itinerary

The Basilica of Santa Cecilia is devoted to a young Roman woman named Cecilia, martyred under Marcus Aurelius. According to tradition, the Basilica is built on top of the Saint's house.

Then Antica Caciara Trasteverina is an iconic butcher shop in the centre of Rome. The name of this spot was chosen by the trasteverini (those who live in Trastevere): this was the place where roman shepherds would come and sell their cheese, typically called caci. 

The Antica Norcineria Iacozzilli is a local butcher shop in Trastevere. It is famous for its delicious porchetta (roast pork)

Da Venanzio is an iconic Roman street food shop. Here you'll find lovely pizza al taglio, pasta, and delicious supplì, fried rice balls with hot steaming ragù and melting mozzarella.

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches in Rome. Its golden mosaics have fascinated travelers throughout the centuries.

Piazza Trilussa is an important square of Trastevere, that looks over the river Tiber.
