Let me start by saying Rome brought me the best meal I have had in my entire life and it's not even close.  Continuing on, I loved this city!  Of course not only the food, but just the overall culture of the city was one that I loved to view and experience, and Rome lived up to the hype I was expecting.  The history with the Colosseum was beautiful, as well as every road we strolled down, especially in Trastevere!  Speaking of Trastevere, the nightlife was something I have never seen before with no real bars or clubs but just all the streets were packed with people hanging out and enjoying the city and their friends.  I would and want to come back as soon as possible!

  • Stay

    • Hotel Mosaic Central Rome: Link

    • Next time: The location was good but I would 100% try and stay in Trastevere

  • Things to Do and Reviews

    • Colosseum, Roman Forum

      • Obviously a must and truly incredible sites to see

      • Buy tickets ahead of time so you can skip the lines

      • There are package deals for all three sites which I would highly recommend

    • Trevi Fountain

      • Not much to say about it but definitely awesome and a must see

    • Panthenon

      • The line may wrap around the whole plaza but it moves so quick and doesn’t take much time at all inside, maybe 5 minutes

    • St. Peter’s Basilica and Vatican City

      • St. Peter’s was so gorgeous and I think a must

      • We didn’t see the Vatican or Sistine Chapel because we ran out of time but those are definitely must see’s

    • Spanish Steps

      • Not really sure what the hype is about these but I guess cool to climb

      • Fill your water bottle at the fountain at the bottom

  • Lunch Places and Reviews

    • Roscioli

      • Incredible pizza and so cheap, I got like 5 slices for 16 euros

      • Visited by chefs like Bobby Flay and highly recommended by them

      • My favorites were the pork and crispy potato, the white pizza with spinach, and the thick crust burrata and pesto

    • Osteria da Fortunata

      • Awesome place with people hand rolling the pasta right in front of you

      • One of the more known places so go early if you don’t want to wait in line

      • Gricia was my favorite from here

  • Dinner Places and Reviews

    • Trattoria Da Enzo Al 29

      • WOW WOW WOW, maybe the best meal I have ever had in my whole life

      • This was the best burrata, olive oil, meatballs, and pasta I have ever had in my life

      • The burrata, olive oil with the bread, and meatballs are musts, and our favorite pasta was the gricia, absolutely incredible

      • This is one of the best restaurants and they don’t have reservations

      • They open at 7 and we got there at 7:15 and there was a line down the road which we waited in

      • Highly recommend getting here and waiting at like 6:30/45, you can order aperol spritzes in line :)

    • Alfredo Alla Scrofa

      • Known as the birthplace of fettuccine alfredo so I had super high standards, but it was very disappointing

      • Would highly recommend skipping this restaurant no matter how many reviews or websites say to go there

    • Trattoria Vecchia Roma

      • This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Rome, this was my second favorite restaurant in Italy besides Enzo 29

      • We got there at 7 and managed to get a table, but when we walked out at 9 there was the most massive line down the entire road

      • We heard one woman say she made a reservation two months in advance, so reservation is highly advised

      • All the pizzas, pastas, and cheesecake were incredible

        • The Bucatini All'Amatriciana Flambe and Osso Bucco were the table favorites​

  • Dessert/Late Night Eats

    • Della Palma

      • Great ice cream but nothing spectacular

    • Venchi

      • Great gelato

  • Best Bars/Clubs

    • Scholars Lounge

      • Mondays they have karaoke night which tons of abroad kids go to, very fun

    • Anywhere in Trastevere
