Discover the hidden gems of Trastevere, a vibrant district not only bustling with pizzerias, clubs, and restaurants but also a treasure trove of some of the finest medieval and Baroque artworks nestled within its churches.

Begin your exploration at the Basilica of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, erected on the foundations of one of Rome’s most ancient churches. This sacred site, dedicated to the patron saint of music and musicians, boasts stunning 9th-century mosaics and a remarkable 13th-century altar by Arnolfo di Cambio.

Step further into the past with a visit to a hidden corner of the basilica where fragments of Pietro Cavallini's 'The Last Judgment' come to life—a magnificent fresco tucked away behind the nuns' choir, rarely seen by the public. Next, wander over to the Church of S. Francesco a Ripa where you can behold Gianlorenzo Bernini’s exquisite statue of the Blessed Ludovica Albertoni, one of the maestro’s last sculptures, cradled within a serene chapel.

Embark on this artistic pilgrimage through Trastevere and immerse yourself in the beauty and history that permeates every corner of this enchanting Roman neighborhood.
