Linda's top 5 in Rome
Fruit and vegetable market's in Rome
Visit a local fruit and vegetable market. The most famous one is Campo de Fiori, but if you’d like to step away from the beaten path, hop on tram number 8 and check out the Mercato San Giovanni di Dio.
The Aventine Hill and Gioadino Degli Aranci Park
For the best views of Rome, visit Aventine Hill and the Giardino degli Aranci park. Peek through the Knights of Malta Keyhole, for the perfect view of the St. Peter’s Basilica dome. Make sure you’re there at noon to see the firing of the cannon.
Try out an aportivo likes a Roman
Be a Roman and enjoy a pre-dinner aperitivo. Aperol Spritz is the locals’ favourite. Free snacks are served with your drink at most bars.
Explore the real deal in Italian kitchen
The mozzarella is to die for, as are the typical roman pasta sauces – carbonara and amatriciana. Da Francesco, near Piazza Navona, is one of my favorite spots for local Italian food.
The Italian pizza snack
When Italians want a quick bite, they grab a slice of pizza. Typical Roman fast food is pizza al taglio, or white pizza with potato.
