Trastevere is the old Jewish quarter of Rome. It's just across the river from Campo dei Fiori, but most tourists never even go there. It's much more of a local hangout, filled with bars and clubs, all spilling out into the streets. When we went, we spent most of our time just hanging out at S. Maria di Trastevere, another beautiful piazza with accompanying fountain. We were certainly not alone. The streets were crowded and lined with street vendors (I almost bought some jewelry on the spot!), and with the bars closing at 1am, the population seemed to double in no time. Very cool place to go out if you're not too tired at the end of the day!
