The one and only Roma
In the hip neighborhood of Trastevere. Great refuge from touristy areas and winding streets are great for romantic dinners and wandering at night
Central location close to Spanish Steps. Wonderful views of the city to enjoy during rooftop cocktails
Perfection. Garden is what dreams are made of
Trattoria Da Augusto- Absolute hole in the wall but classic Italian Roman food. Get cacio e pepe and classic marinara. Real deal
Nonna Betta- Best in the Jewish Ghetto. The roman artichoke is.to.die.for.
Flavio al Velavevodetto- Pasta Heaven
La Salumeria- Afternoon Nosh and Vino
Pierluigi- Fancy Dinner Out
Vatican - Get tickets before hand to beat the line. Essential. If you have time the Coliseum is cool, but the Vatican is phenomenal
Trevi Fountain - Iconic romantic spot. Get there early or late to beat the crowds
Piazza Navona - Bustling square with trio of fountains and vendors selling artwork
Campo de' Fiore - One of my top favorite spots in Rome. Outdoor market setting Italian food souvenirs - perfect for gifts or afternoon snacks
Borghese Gallery - Impressive private collection of a wealthy cardinal, set in the Borghese park. Be sure this gallery is on your list.
IN THE KNOW
Rome can be be flooded with tourists, especially around key sights. Don't forget to wander the city and get lost. Hidden gems lie around every corner.
In the heat of summer, seek shelter in cool smaller churches where you will be awestruck by frescos
Melon gelato from Gelateria del Teatro is the best summer treat.
