The 5 days the fam and I spent in Rome really rang true to the saying ‘you wear your shoes out walking Rome’, well if that wasn’t a saying… I hereby officially make it one. But in my honest opinion what better way to see such an intriguing city!
With Rome stilled filled with the festive atmosphere in anticipation of La Befana, my favourite Piazza, Piazza Navona, was singing colour and giving off those wonderful carnival vibes.
Something to really marvel at in this beautiful city is how such a place is centred around thousands of years of history, literally. Pretty much the main hub is bordering some of the greatest remains of the Roman Empire. Marvelling material.
I’m gonna out the obvious out there first, the Colosseum. So much fascinating history in one place, let me tell you, I’m now itching to watch ‘Gladiator’!
And thirdly; EAT YOUR HEART OUT. We always found it such a thrill each night to venture off the beaten track and find those cute little restaurants and family run businesses, which generally produced some of our favourite food!
What to eat? Well the regional food is bruschetta, carbonara, cacio & peep pasta (cheese and pepper) and roman artichokes – sounds delish already huh?
On our final night, as luck goes, we always seem to stumble across the best eats of area, in our case, we had been recommended to go to Glass Hostaria. Which may I tell you, is possibly the best I’ve ever eaten in my life! No exaggeration. The menu and food was simply exquisite, not to mention the stunning dinning room, and served by one of the best chefs, Cristina Bowerman. Fine dinning at its finest! My mouth was literally salivating for more at the end of each dish, despite me stretching my skirt to almost double, now that’s saying something! Let’s hear it for Glass Hostaria!
Thank-you Rome for your beautiful city lights at night, the history you hold and your drool worthy food!
