Dining in Rome

Throughout the fall, one is able to dine either indoors or out of doors (al fresco) at the many picturesque restaurants, pizzerias, and cafés that Rome has to offer. Roman cuisine includes such delectable dishes as:

  • bruschetta, toasted country bread with olive oil and garlic
  • caprese, fresh mozzarella, tomato slices, fresh basil, and olive oil
  • spaghetti alla carbonara or penne al salmone, just two of the scores of interesting and delicious pasta dishes
  • saltimbocca alla romana, tasty pounded veal with prosciutto and sage
  • wood-stove pizza, great for a late-night supper
  • and extraordinary desserts, such as tiramisu, which combines chocolate, coffee, and mascarpone cheese

Have an espresso, cappuccino, caffè-latte, or caffè ristretto (much more intense than espresso), at neighborhood cafés. And be sure to try the many flavors of Italy's exquisite ice creams (gelati) and sorbets (sorbetti) at ice cream shops throughout the city.

Both the simplest and most elaborate of tastes are readily accommodated in Rome, and you can even get hamburgers easily if you want to.

Shopping in Rome

Rome has been a great place to shop for thousands of years, and its stores often are housed in beautiful medieval, Renaissance, or Baroque buildings. In the center of town, there are high-end designer boutiques with stunning window displays. Shopping streets in other areas of the city offer chic styles at more affordable prices. Best buys include leather goods of all kinds, including jackets, shoes, and bags, ready-to-wear Italian clothes, antiques, and art.

Entertainment in Rome

In the fall, the weather is perfect for sports and jogging. Bicycles are easily rented at locations throughout the city, which is full of beautiful, flower-filled parks and gardens. Roman clubs offer jazz, reggae, samba, folk, and world music as well as rock, techno, and hip-hop. More traditional venues offer performances of classical music, opera, ballet, and theater.
