Five of the best in Rome

Rome is famous for its delicious food, great nightlife, spectacular history and awe-inspiring architecture spanning millennia. Here are some of our favourites, all over the city, from mouth-watering pasta dishes to Rome’s best wine bars.

Favourite coffee shops or cafés?

Coffee in Rome is more than just a quick espresso in the morning, it is a chance to catch up on local news and chat with friends. Anyone in the know goes to La Casa Del Caffè Tazza D'oro, near the Pantheon, whose espresso is renowned all over Rome. Or head to Trastevere to Caffè Camerino, whose cakes and coffee are out of this world. If you are ready for a local favourite, then the stunning handmade cakes at Barberini Caffetteria in Testaccio will not disappoint. Any time of day, you can sit and watch Rome life go by.

The best pasta for lunch?

The best pasta for lunch?

Rome is home to the spaghetti alla carbonara, made with pecorino cheese, egg yolk, black pepper and guanciale (slightly smoked pork jowls) – not bacon. Many places do a version of this, but who can claim to be the best? We recommend trying L’Arcangelo in Prati for an unpretentious lunch. Or for a Michelin-starred version, try the Pipero al Rex – whose chef is famous for his stunning interpretation of this classic. For the vegetarians out there, try a Cacio e pepe – much like a carbonara but without the added meat.

Who has the best gelato?

Who has the best gelato?

For a Roman, gelato is not just ice cream, it is a way of life. Locals can spend hours arguing which store has the best gelato and their favourite flavours. In the recent advent of new gourmet gelaterias, who can blame them? Try Gelateria del Teatro, whose daily-changing experimental flavour choices will surprise and often delight with their originality. Or try the wonderful mini-chain Fatamorgana where you can get gluten-free, organic gelato in Monti. Try some experimental recipes, including seeds, herbs and spices – like the delicious poppy seed and cream flavour or black cherries and beer.

What are the best attractions?

Rome could be said to be an open-air museum itself – with so many major attractions it is impossible to see them all. So if you can only see a few on your trip, make them count. The Colosseum is arguably the most awe-inspiring, and with our guided tour you will learn its fascinating and gory history. Vatican City has some of the finest religious art in the world, and the Sistine Chapel is unmissable – Michelangelo’s ceiling changed the course of western art immeasurably. Or for the more modern-minded, go and see Mussolini’s Esposizione Universale Roma (EUR) – an out-of-town district which features white marble structures in the neoclassical Rationalist design.

Rome’s favourite wine bars?

Wine bars come in all shapes and sizes in the Eternal City, like wonderful hole-in-the-wall places – try Enoteca Ferrara in Trastevere for a traditional locals bar. Or go a bit more upmarket, perhaps to the Enoteca Regionale Palatium, where they serve delicious local wines alongside seasonal Roman dishes, just near the awe-inspiring Trevi Fountain. A lot of Rome’s wine bars have been around for hundreds of years, serving local frascati wine (from nearby Lazio) and small plates of appetizers. So enjoy your early evening aperitivo with the locals, and see where the night takes you.
