The means of
transport in Trastevere
what they are and where to take them
If you are planning a trip to Trastevere, surely one thing you will have to deal with is the means of transport.
Not being in Star Trek, in fact, you are not equipped with teleportation, so to move within the Rione and the interior of Rome you will need means of transport like everyone else.
In this article we will tell you which means of transport are present in the Trastevere district and where they can take you.
Trastevere Tram lines
As we will discover in the article, the Trastevere district is full of means of transport, but we can say with some certainty that the two tram lines that cross the district are the most important ones.
Line 3 of the tram, in fact, connects the Trastevere district with other areas of the city such as Testaccio, San Lorenzo, the Sapienza University, the Policlinico Umberto I and others, but also with important meeting points with other means of transport, such as Piramide (where you can take the metro B, the Roma-Lido railway and where the Ostiense station is located), San Giovanni (metro lines A and C), Porta Maggiore (Rome-Giardinetti railway).
Line 8, on the other hand, connects Trastevere with some important areas of the city, such as Largo di Torre Argentina, Piazza Venezia, the Campidoglio, the San Camillo hospital and Villa Pamphilj.
The Trastevere district does not have its own train station, but the tram lines we mentioned can connect the district to other regional and national railway stations. In addition to those, there is also the Roma Trastevere station. Although the name suggests something else, this station is not located in the Trastevere district but outside it, but it remains the fourth airport of Rome and both national, regional or urban trains stop there.
As you can also guess from the previous paragraphs, in Trastevere there are no direct subway lines, however thanks to the tram lines 3 and 8 it is possible to reach some subway stations, to be precise lines A, B and C.
The taxi is certainly not the cheapest way to get around, but sometimes it can be very useful. In general, every place where you will stay will tell you which number to call to have a taxi come to pick you up wherever you are, but if you are in its vicinity, know that in Piazza Flavio Biondo there is the Trastevere Taxi station where you can find them. you will find them all.
Getting around by car
Using your own vehicles is always the most comfortable method of getting around, but sometimes it can prove to be a problem, especially for traffic and parking.
However, if you want to go to Trastevere by car, the suggestion we can give you is to find a hotel or a hotel that can ensure you a secure parking, so that your car is not damaged or stolen, otherwise you can use one of the guarded car parks in the Trastevere district (we have counted two, but in the structure where you will stay they can give you more information) or, if you need to park your car for a few hours, rely on one of the other car parks in the area.
According to our research, in fact, in the Trastevere district there are about 18 parking lots.
Bicycle and moped rental
As said and often repeated, Rome is a very chaotic city with a lot of traffic, so traveling around it can prove to be a tiring and nerve-wracking undertaking.
Sure, you could walk, but it can get tiring, especially if you want to travel long distances. How about opting for a bicycle then?
In Trastevere as in all of Rome or, in general, in any city in the world, it is possible to rent a bicycle or a moped and use them to move more easily within the Trastevere district.
As always, the hotel where you will stay will be able to give you information about the activities that rent bicycles and mopeds, but if this is not the case, a quick Google search will help you find your way around the search.
