Trip Report A few recommendations from a recent trip to Rome

Jump to last reply

Just spent 3 days in Rome following a Mediterranean cruise. Luckily this was our second visit; we had already seen so many wonderful treasures the first time. The intense heat made running around a lot difficult, so we didn't. s

We stayed at the very charming, boutique BAROCCO HOTEL in Piazza Barberini. Lovely
room, great included breakfast(abundant buffet, eggs and hot drinks made to order),
very gracious and helpful staff. Loved the location, minutes from the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain.

A food tour through FOOD TOURS OF ROME, www.foodtoursofrome.com, on our first
evening was a highlight of our stay. With our guide and ten other travellers, we
walked around the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori, the Ghetto, making seven
stops for delicious food and wine, learning about the history of these areas and Roman cuisine. If we had had more time, we would definitely have returned to PANE VINO & DANIELE, Piazza Mattei, 16 in the Ghetto and DA PANCRAZIO, Piazza del Biscione, 92,
Campo de Fiori.

Dinner our second evening was at GLASS HOSTARIA in Trastevere. Very modern, very sleek interior with a modern take on Italian cuisine. Our food was amazing and staff was great. We were able to chat with chef/owner Cristina Bowerman.

We had dinner our last evening at TRITONE ANTICA TRATTORIA near the Trevi Fountain.
We shared gnocchi, cacio e pepe, roman style chicken stew and a very tasty tiramisu, and were entertained by our waiter, who sang to each table as he grated parmigiano reggiano on a grater that looked like a megaphone.

Missed on our first trip to Rome, this time we made it to the church of
SANTA MARIA DELLA VITTORIA to see Bernini's exquisite ECSTASY OF ST. THERESA. The church, itself, is a feast for the eyes.

Of course we returned to TRE SCALINI on Piazza Navona for tartufo(a chocolate lover's dream).

It was over all too soon.
