Aventino and Testaccio

While Romans consider these neighborhoods central, they are just far enough off the beaten path to be little known to tourists—and to have retained their unique character, from the well-heeled, garden-filled residential quarter of Aventino to the traditional-yet-trendy riverside neighborhood of Testaccio. For travelers who have a little extra time (or who simply want to see a Rome beyond the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps), making a visit to these areas allows a glimpse of what the Eternal City really means to its residents.
