• Trastevere and Villa Farnesina Guided Tour •
Trastevere is one of Rome’s most ancient neighbourhoods: its name meaning literally “across the Tiber” but …more than a river divides the people of Trastevere from the rest of the city!
“Trasteverini”, the so named inhabitants of Trastevere, have always been very proud of their origins, believing themselves to be the only true Roman citizens…
You will see this during your Guided Tour of Trastevere and Villa Farnesina.
Meet the real Romans, enjoy the area’s home cooking, wander through winding lanes and enjoy the real Rome.
In the Middle Ages it was a popolous district full of busy artisans and ingenious people inventing new jobs to scrape out a living, like the river-crossers or ancient “scuba divers” ready to dive into the river for any objects you might have accidentaly lost!
Walk through the beating heart of this district with your licensed, local, Roman guide, you will smell the spirit of a medieval port town: taverns, leather workers, carpenters and bakers still have their workshops here…
Let’s taste a bite of pizza in one of the most ancient bakeries of the city…still in front of where river wheat mills were!
As it is on the same side of the Vatican, Trastevere became the favourite place to build “summer villas” for the noble families in Rome.
First of all the Chigi family and their VILLA FARNESINA!
The banker Agostino was one of the richest man in the Holy See. A merchant with a passion for art, he managed to involve Raphael and Sebastiano del Piombo in the decoration of his psectacular villa. The Villa Farnesina was built in the early six¬teenth century for the outer layout of the Villa, created by the architect Baldassarre Peruzzi, is the pefect setting for a rich interior decoration, boasting frescos by the greatest masters of the Rebirth of art such as Raphael, Sodoma, Sebastiano del Piombo, and Peruzzi himself.
We won’t miss the charming and most famous frescos in the Villa, the Galatea by Raphael or the vault by Baldassarre Peruzzi with its representation of Agostino’s horoscope!
