Centro Storico | Rome City Center
Centro Storico is bordered by the Aurelian Walls and by the Janiculum walls (Mura Gianicolensi), which include the Vatican walls. Centro Storico simply refer to the historic center of Rome, and this is where most people prefer to stay, while visiting Rome. However Centro Storico consists of 22 riones (neighborhoods), so we to have had a closer look at Prati and Trastevere, which are two of them.
Prati | Rome
The Prati district, situated just northeast of the Vatican City, is a good place to stay in Rome, as it offers affordable hotels, shopping and a fabulous food scene.
The Eternal City, which in fact is an independent state, is however, in everyday life, just another neigh-bourhood in the Italian capital and it is only walking distance from Prati - waiting to be explored.
People flock to Rome from all over the world to see the Vatican City. You can choose from several different guided tours to the Vatican City, the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and you can even book aPapal Audience Ticket.
Prati is the 22nd rione of Rome and one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in the city.

Trastevere | Rome
Trastevere is the 13th rione of Rome, on the west bank of the Tiber, south of Vatican City, and within Municipio I. Trastevere means “across the Tiber river.”
The neighbourhood was once a working-class area, but has now been renovated to please a more middle class taste.
Trastevere remains one of Rome’s most colorful quarters, in spite of all the changes it went through, when discovered by bohemians and expats in the 1970s.
Today Trastevere is a lively area with informel, small Italian restaurants, dance clubs, street vendors and tour buses.
