Seeking Off The Beaten Path Suggestions for Rome in November

Jump to last reply

My mom and I will be returning to Rome for a week at the end of November. Big surprise there, we love Rome!

Because we have been to the Eternal City 6 times in as many years, we have covered alot of the "blockbuster" attractions, and some lesser known ones too! :-D

We are BIG into food and wine. Do we enjoy a Michelin starred place every once in a while? Yes, but we are really very happy to patronize the smaller family run trattorias.

We also enjoy meandering through the beautiful churhces that abound in Rome and have been to several smaller ones, which we prefer, although we seem to usually squeeze a visit to St. Peter's Basillica during most of our stays.

We have also been fortunate to catch a variety of temporary exhibits over the years, including a fashion exhibit with costumes from Italian designers from a variety of theater and opera productions (one of our favorites!)

Now my question is...do you have any recommendations for "off the beaten path" attractions or activites to do while in Rome? They don't have to be food/wine related, but that's always ok with us.

In the past we have done cooking lessons (in Bologna), wine education sessions (in Rome), day trips to Orvieto, Hadrian's Villa/Villa d'Este & the Castelli Romagni town of Ariccia. I have booked a food walking tour with Elizabeth Minchilli and we are considering a day trip to Spoleto (mostly as a fact-finding mission to see if we'd like to do a future trip to Umbria and use Spoleto as a base)

We are not adverse to using public transportation, we are getting quite good at it in Rome and the surrounding area.

Thanks for any suggestions you may provide.
