Where to eat:

La Scala: casual dinner spot, perfect for people watching

Dar Poeta: casual pizza spot, perfect for lunch

Roma Sparita: where Anthony Bourdain stopped for Cacio e Pepe in No Reservations

Frigidarium: gelato

Roscioli’s Restaurant & Deli: you can pick up quick food (suppli, panini, pastries) or dine at the restaurant there

La Panetteria Romana e Spaccio di Paste: forno, good for quick food (suppli, panini, pastries) and self service wine

Other highly recommended restaurants I didn’t get to try: Taverna Trilussa, Felice, Tonnorello

What to do:

Half day golf cart tour (private) via MyBestTour: was perfect for me because I was severely jet lagged and got to cover a bunch of sights in a short amount of time

-Pantheon, Colleseum, Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese, Trevi Fountain-

Walking food tour via Walks of Italy: tasting at Nona Betta in the Jewish ghetto, Ruggieri’s cheese shop tasting, Viola meat shop tasting, Suppli and beer from Roscioli’s, pizza making at Origano, gelato at Fatamorgana

Walk around Trastevere: my favorite neighborhood, I spent most of my time here
