As the popular saying “when in Rome” goes, eating and drinking like the locals do is the only way to experience this ancient city. A place with thousands of years of culture, world-renowned cuisine, iconic architecture, and a historic Christian pilgrimage site, Rome seems to have it all. Each cultural era—medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Neoclassicism—have left their distinctive marks on Rome’s fountains, villas, and plazas.
Rome is one of the most-visited cities in the world, drawing tourists from all walks of life. Some come to visit Vatican City, an independent country within Rome that is run by the Pope. Others come to visit the upscale boutiques: Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Armani all have locations in this city. Enticing dishes like gnocchi bolognese, polenta, and gelato also draw foodies into this city. As a Roman tradition, dinner is best served with wine and in Rome they’re not too particular about the grape. When ordering as the Romans do, requesting simply a ‘red’ or a ‘white’ will do.
