A walk along the Tiber from St. Angelo Castel to the Tiberina Island

Walk through St. Peter’s Square to Borgo Santo Spirito, then from Piazza Della Rovere take Via della Lungara and reach Santa Maria in Trastevere. On Via Della Lungara you can decide to stop at Palazzo Corsini to see the Raphael Rooms, or to enter the Orto Botanico (Bothanic Garden). Once in the heart of Trastevere you can get lost in the small streets and find something to eat, a snack, a drink or just seat at a restaurant. Than walk up to the Gianicolo hill best view, following Via Garibaldi up to the so called “Fontanone”. Take a few pictures from one of the best prospectives over Rome, and then walk down crossing the Tiber on the Tiberina Island.

Then on the other side of the river you will be in the heart of the Jewish Quarter, and walk up to Campo Dei Fiori (if you like to see the market at Campo dei Fiori at work would be better to do this itinerary just inverting the directions …. ). Then walk through Piazza Farnese, Via di Monserrato and Via dei Banchi Vecchi (a very nice antique shops area) up to  Sant’Angelo Bridge and Castel Sant’Angelo. Then cross the nice Borgo District using Via Borgo Vittorio or Via Borgo Pio and reach the Vatican Walls. There you will recognize the area to come back at our Guest House.
