Grilled parma ham, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes. Yes.
Steak and potatoes. Classic.
Carbonara. Reported to be the best in the city. I wouldn’t argue heavily with that statement.
Spaghettone with tuna. Again, not a favourite. We enjoyed our seafood pasta in Sicily more than this lovely plate, so yes, I’d recommend trying the carbonara at Roscioli for a stellar pasta dish.
Le Polpette. Heavenly, truly delicious meatballs with smoked ricotta and chestnut polenta.
Maybe we’ll end our night with more gelato in this dazzling city. Gelato by the Pantheon? Yes that sounds about right.
I quite favoured our evening strolls in Rome, stumbling across ancient beauty. Overwhelming ancient beauty. I’m constantly in awe of Rome and it’s purposeful architecture.
Oh Rome, let me come back into your arms soon. I’m just going to put it out there, you’re my favourite.
Length of stay:
3 days and nights. This was my fourth visit to Rome, so again I was already a little familiar with this city and did not need to spend much time visiting tourist sights. For a first visit, allow at least five days to see this city at a happy pace. If visiting The Vatican City, allow an extra day.
Donna Camilla Savelli in Trastevere.
Where we ate:
see previous post, Tasteccio…where I wish to be and above.
exploring Trastevere, espresso in the square and visiting Gianicolo Hill again and again for the best view of the city. Gallivanting around Testaccio and all the divine eats we had in this beloved pocket. Listening to Ben’s tales on ancient Roman history as he read a book on the subject, and hearing him recount tales as we walked around this historic city. Wandering, wandering, wandering. Having sweet scoops from Il Gelato di San Crispino as we sat by the Pantheon. All that history, all that vino, all that beauty…
