Listen to “Best of the Podcast – A Wander Through Trastevere” on Spreaker.


We’re headed back to Rome, the Eternal City, revisiting another of our most popular episodes –  A Wander through Trastevere. Our guest, award-winning travel journalist and author Maria Pasquale is a Trastevere resident herself and guides us through the cobbled, vine-draped streets that make up this charming neighborhood and tells us about the best places to wander, grab an aperitivo and, of course, eat.

Show notes
We look back on one of our most popular episodes, talking about one of our favorite places, the charming Trastevere neighborhood in Rome. This neighborhood is a fantastic place to stay when in Rome, as it’s close to the action, but away from the crowded tourist center, full of great restaurants, bars, and shops. 

Many of the topics we cover in our podcasts come up from questions we get asked in our Italy Travel Planning Community. Don’t forget you can find us on Instagram via our handle @untold.italy and our Untold Italy Travel Facebook page.

Travel the Untold Italy way

Traveling the Untold Italy way is soaking up every last minute, exploring the many different regions and subcultures of Italy. When you’re in the big cities it’s looking for those unique curiosities you can only find there or chasing after a unique experience that speaks to your passions – whether that be history, food, or creating art.

Our style of travel includes getting to grips with a myriad of pasta shapes and unique tastes that draw on seasonal local ingredients because pasta in Italy is not just Pasta al Pomodoro. We’re about meeting local artisans and discovering the passion and dedication behind their creations. But above all, we believe in having time to explore and time to relax. And to enjoy long leisurely aperitivo and meals with great wine and even better company.
