While in RomeWritten by Olivia Bohman by Sandra Myhrberg
Morning stroll Campo de’ Fiori.
Start your morning with a walk to Campo de’ Fiori. It’s a square with the most famous old market in Rome, you can buy everything from flowers, herbs, pasta and fruit. Its super cosy and the square is very lively and colorful in the morning because of all the fresh fruit and vegetables that people wants to buy.
If you’re an early bird there is a square not so far from the market called Piazza Saint’Eustachio where you can have breakfast or just a quick espresso. The sun is shining all morning and its perfect to people-watch.
Places you’ll have to see no matter what.
Yes, these places may be very touristic but if this is you’re first time in Rome, I’ll write down some places I think is worth it.
You have several places to see if you’re around Ponte and Parione, like Piazza Navona which is a gorgeous square with restaurants and a rooftop bar called Terrazzo Borromini. Also the best gelato in Rome called Gelateria del Teatro is located in that area.
Pantheon may be one of my favorite famous buildings here. Its not much to do except to see it. But for me its just a monument you have to see when you’re here. You have a great sandwich-place here as well called All antico vinaio - YUM!
If you want to combine aperitivo and an attraction go to Spanish steps, go up the stairs to Hotel de la Ville. The hotel is incredible and the view from the rooftop bar is even more incredible if that’s even possible.
Fontana di Trevi as we all know is one of the most famous attraction except the Colosseum. There are many of us who wants to take a dip in the fountain like Anita Ekberg did 1960. But unfortunately that was the last time someone was allowed in the water. If you are there during the afternoon swing by Relais Fontana Di Trevi Hotel and you’ll have beautiful view over the fountain.
Dillá, close to Spanish steps, recommend the lasagne.
Osteria da Fortunata - They have two restaurants, make sure you go to the one were they make the pasta inside the restaurants. There was a cute lady making the pasta just in front of us.
Cantina e Cucina - in the cozy area around Piazza Navona.
Taverna Trilussa - Seriously the best cacio e Pepe I’ve ever had.
To be honest, there are a lot of good bars in Rome. Here are a few tips.
The Court - exclusive, 5 star but a view overlooking Il Colosseo.
Mimi e Coco - small but cosy, its by far the best Lambrusco I’ve ever tried.
Antica Enoteca - the atmosphere is great. They have super good cheese and prosecco.
I would recommend to walk around in Trastevere, I don’t think I can describe the vibe that is in the air with words. They have restaurants and bars everywhere you look. This area is ba far my favorite. People are super cool and you’ll find beers for 1€.
If you’re in Rome for more than 3 days, take the train to Tivoli, they have a place called Villa d’Este with a garden that is just breathtaking. Its also a museum that you can wander around for an hour or two.
If you don’t have the time to do a detour, visit Musei Capitolini. It’s located in the area called Campitelli. Just GORGEOUS!
