Rome Italy

Rome is one of the oldest cities in Europe, with a history spanning more than 2,500 years. Stepping foot in its historic centre – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – is like travelling back in time, with millennium-old palaces, grand churches and basilicas, romantic ruins and ornate statues on every corner.
While the mighty Colosseum and the Pantheon stand proudly above the city skyline and form part of Rome’s undeniable identity, the true soul of the city lies beyond its famous sites. Explore winding cobblestone backstreets in little-known neighbourhoods and you'll discover markets buzzing with locals, charming coffee shops and age-old family-run trattorias.
Add to all this a generous dose of cutting-edge fashion boutiques, state-of-the-art theatres and art exhibitions and it is easy to see where Rome's nickname “The Eternal City” comes from. After a few days here you won't ever want to leave.

Where to eat in Rome - La Tavernaccia da Bruno

La Tavernaccia da Bruno

This is an informal, family-run bistro popular with the locals, who flock here for its hearty Italian fare that comes in generous portions. Start with freshly-baked focaccia served with prosciutto, sliced by hand, before trying one of the traditional Roman pastas, such as wild boar rigatoni with pajata (calf intestines), or rigatoni alla carbonara. The wine list is substantial and make sure you save room for a pastry for dessert.

Insider Tip: If you visit when the vegetable is in season, do remember to order the restaurant's famous carciofi alla giudia (deep-fried artichoke). It's lip-smackingly good.

Where to eat in Rome - Trattoria Monti

Trattoria Monti

This tiny, elegant trattoria has everything you'd want from a restaurant: intimate ambience, excellent, well-priced food and an extensive wine list. Located close to the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, it is run by the Camerucci family. The brothers work front of house, while the mother cooks in the kitchen. Dishes reflect traditional cuisine from the Marches region (an area northeast of Rome, where the Camerucci family come from), such as tagliatelle in duck sauce and timballo di coniglio con patate (rabbit casserole with potatoes).

Insider Tip: It is notoriously hard to get a table at this restaurant; if you've left it late to book, go for lunch when you can usually bag a table without a reservation.
