Share your Roman food experience and make some foodie friends in Trastevere, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Rome. Our guide will lead you on a culinary journey to introduce you to Rome’s specialties and local wines. At the same time, you will have the chance to admire the beauty of Trastevere’s alleys and buildings as well as other important sites like the Jewish Ghetto and Campo de’ Fiori.
The Jewish Quarter in Rome is a great spot to partake in delicious fresh bread or a traditional Jewish-style fried artichoke (i.e. Carciofi alla giudìa). As you enter from the east bank of the Tiber, the streets begin to huddle around you. Curious markings and talismans adorn the walls and men in black caps with ringlets mix with the other locals. Recently gentrified, Kosher is now chic here. Old and new mix to create a bustling neighbourhood quarter with boutique stores.
Campo de’ Fiori is currently one of the most beloved parts of the city. After twilight, the area becomes one of the best meeting places in Rome thanks to its location, wide variety of restaurants, cocktail bars and terraces. What the Italians call La Dolce Vita (or the sweet life) can perhaps be best felt here in Campo de’ Fiori at sunset. Robert Frost famously wrote in his poem Nothing Gold Can Stay about the best time of day as sunrise, but we must conclude he never saw a sunset in Rome.
Sunset in Campo captures a wonderful combination of Italy’s welcome and warmth. The afternoon Mediterranean breeze and rust-colored hues of its stucco-painted houses, backlit with deep ethereal blues skies, set in front of acres of glistening black cobblestone, beset by woman and wine, the experience of La Dolce Vita dawns upon you as you experience a sensory overload: the eyes, ears, lips, and heart resonate like never felt before. At that moment and forever more, you will say, “I. love. Italy.”
