Endless cobbled streets, monuments that spring from nowhere, and some of the best carbs you’ll ever eat.
The Romans are famous for many things; The Colosseum; inventing roads; the Fiat 500. But some of their most important offerings are to the world of food. Who hasn’t fallen in love with a comforting bowl of pasta covered in puttanesca sauce? Or a crisp Roman pizza, fresh out of the wood-fired oven? In Rome, food is love and there’s a sense of it everywhere you go. Overlook the arches of the Colosseum for a lunch, then head down to get lost in the winding streets of the hip Trastevere area.
Let the Romans take care of you for a few days, just watch the waistline.
