Ponte Sisto
Ponte Sisto, the first bridge built in modern times, was built by Pope Sisto IV della Rovere (1471-1484), on the occasion of the Jubilee of 1475, to allow direct communication between the Trastevere district (and the Vatican) and the rest of the city. The bridge is one of the few pedestrian bridges in Rome. It consists of four arches covered in travertine, has a circular opening in the center and is decorated with five papal marble coats of arms.

Stop At:  
Trastevere
Once in Trastevere you enter the medieval area of the city, still visible today in the views, in the voices of the inhabitants and in the protagonists of this neighborhood, of the past and the present. Talking about tradition, we will stop for a taste of porchetta ( roasted pork) with white pizza, buffalo mozzarella with and nice glass of wine, at La Norcineria Iacozzilli. The guide will not fail to illustrate the crucial moment in which Rome was the city of the Pope and protected by it against the barbarians and conquerors who came from all over. So, to make all better, let's enjoy a taste of cheese trio at the Antica Caciara by Roberto Polica. From medieval Rome, through the narrow streets around Via della Lungaretta and Piazza San Cosimato, we pass to discover the Rome of the last centuries, up to the present day. Getting back to present, nothing can be yummier than a typical "Suppli al telefono" at the Suppli 's King place.! The tour ends with a sweet taste in your mouth with tiramisu or cream and zabaglione at Fabrizio Mattei's Pasticceria and an inevitable external stop in front of the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, the heart of this characteristic Roman district.
