Pantheon to Trastevere

Pantheon to Trastevere

This tour starts at the Pantheon and leads us across the river to the Trastevere district. The district, the name means "across the Tiber"
used to be the port area and traditionally a poorer part of Rome. In Roman times foreigners were only allowed to live on this side of the Tiber. In medieval times, due to the area's status as a port and its down and out reputation none of the ruling Roman families built their palaces in this area. However, since the late 19th century its easy-going and working class atmosphere, and lower rents made it attractive as a place to stay for artists coming to work in Rome. Nowadays it is a bustling and colourful area full of great restaurants and watering holes. The narrow streets and lively piazzas present great opportunities for capturing the atmosphere with our cameras and you will spend some time learning how to "hunt" for photographic images and put our focus on street photography. On the way there our route will take us to Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori and its surrounding alleyways, Piazza Farnese, then cross the Ponte Sisto to Trastevere.
