Located near the local neighbourhood Trastevere is this lovely bridge crossing the Tiber. This pedestrian bridge offers wonderful views up and down the river. You can see all the way to St Peters Basilica.

By all accounts a fairly plain bridge, compared to the more ornate types crossing the tiber river, however it serves its purpose. Excellent views are to be had of St Peters dome from the middle of the bridge.

The Ponte Sisto is a 15th century bridge. At night it is bustling with street vendors, musicians and artists. Its an interesting area with its own vibe.

We walked over it 3-4 times at different hours. In evening the views across the river great. Late afternoon, musicians and vendors and just interesting people. Early morning people scurrying to work. A great place to people watch and to cross the river.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the

throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
