Along the Tiber river through the heart of Rome you’ll encounter many interesting sites and monuments of the other Rome. Up until the construction of the embankments, in the late 19th Century, it was completely navigable and characterized by an unending sequence of buildings that faced onto and were reflected by its waters. The river was used for fishing, bathing; the water was used to drink and for motive power. We will see the Isola Tiberina, which was of exceptional importance in the history of the birth and development of Rome. Villa Farnesina, located in Rome (Trastevere), is considered one of the noblest and most harmonious creations of Italian Renaissance. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, it was commissioned by the Sienese banker Agostino Chigi to the architect Baldassarre Peruzzi. The interior is decorated with frescoes by Raphael Sanzio, Sebastiano del Piombo, Giovanni da Udine, Giovanni Bazzi known as il Sodoma, Giulio Romano, Giovan Francesco Penni, and Baldassarre Peruzzi himself. Trastevere is rione XIII of Rome and means literally, “beyond the Tiber.”
Very rich in history, Trastevere with it’s narrow, winding streets, diversity of nightlife and hidden archaeological gems, now houses an international body of artists, students and expatriates who love the area’s rich scenery and abundant secrets. Let’s not talk about the dozens of restaurants, trattorie and pizzerie!
