Rome Restaurants: Tips And Tricks For People Eating In Rome.

Eating and drinking in Rome restaurants.

Rome is not only the capital of Italy but also of the region of Lazio, which is famous for its food. Robust flavours and rich sauces abound in many typical dishes of the area, and pasta and gnocchi in all their many forms ( especially fettucine ) are served in restaurants across Rome city.

Lazio is notable for dishes featuring milk-fed lamb (abbacchio), veal (vitello), Parma ham (saltimbocca), thin-cut steak and offal, all of which are served with delicious herbs and seasonings. Best fish choices in Rome include sea bass (spigola), fried cod (baccalà), bream (orata) and turbot (rombo). Artichokes (carciofi) are scattered all over menus through the winter, before spring heralds the vignarola – a tasty blend of peas, fava beans, and artichokes served with cured pork cheek. Fried sweetbreads are also a Roman speciality.

Rome is rich in markets and this is often reflected in the wonderful variety of superb vegetables served in the city’s restaurants. Beans are used a good deal in the cuisine and appear in many dishes, hot and cold. On a cool winter’s day the visitor seeking a warming lunch could do no better than to choose a tasty minestrone soup, which is another of the area’s specialities.

Standard ‘tourist menus’ generally offer good value, beginning with bread and olive oil with soup or pasta; a simple meat or fish dish with vegetables (contorni) for secondi; and cheese or fresh fruit to finish; accompanied by a carafe of locally produced Frascati white or red wine from Tuscany. As a rule, main dishes do not come with vegetables, which are ordered separately.

Whether you are dining in a no-frills trattorie or a more formal ristorante, owners and chefs invariably take pride in sourcing the best seasonal produce. Vegetarians can expect most first (primi) pasta courses to be meat-free; other choices include a seasonal vegetable ‘fritto misto’ (‘mixed fried’) or side dish combo, the verdure miste (‘mixed green’). Kosher choices are limited because of the prevalence of meat and cheese, particularly pork.

As elsewhere in Italy, pizza remains a popular staple food for the restaurant and the street, and the Roman version is a hybrid between the thick crust, rustic Neopolitan variety and the thinner, more fancy Northern version. Away from the main tourist areas, most restaurants only serve pizza at dinner time.

The neighbourhoods of Trastevere, San Lorenzo and Testaccio are known for offering reasonably priced, authentic Roman cuisine; whilst restaurants around Campo de’Fiori and Piazza Navona are pleasurable places to dine, with musicians on hand to entertain.

Virtually every bar and dining establishment in Rome will offer first-rate filter coffee; Italians regard frothy cappuccinos as a morning drink and rarely a post-prandial treat, when the pick-me-up expresso or macchiato is preferred. Ice creams are sensational, creamy gelato and refreshing granita (sorbets) come in a host of enticing flavours, such as coffee, coconut, liquorice or sour cherry, that are lovingly prepared for an incomparable all-day dessert.

If one to write of Rome and omit mention of its gustatory delights the whole world would protest, because in Rome eating is an art and cooking a science, and he who does not know not what Rome provides knows neither art nor science.

Turbulence tips: How to deal with a bumpy flight

Personally, I have never been fond of roller coaster rides, as a matter of fact I spent my honey moon at Walt Disney and all I got to enjoy was the Merry Go Round and “It’s a small world” ride.

I have always suffered motion sickness from multiple curves in a car ride, to sea-sickness in ocean liners to my ultimate addition: air sickness.

I really pretty much had always had pretty smooth flights in my life until March 2006.

I was on a flight from Rome to Philadelphia and there it happened. We hit clear air turbulence and there I was searching desperately for my barf bag!

I did not get sick to my surprise, but I was simply terrorized.

I never expected an airplane to turn into a dreaded roller coaster ride!

I was white knuckled as my husband was making fun of me.

His humor though was only making me more irritated than ever. I soon realized that that experience had negatively marked my future flights.

I starte becoming nervous at every sign of ‘bumps” on the following flights fearing that the clear turbulence event would happen again. However, I have fortunately found many precious coping skills that make flying for me a more bearable event.

I will share these tips since they seem to work pretty well for me and should for any other individual who just as me hates feeling like jello tossed about the cabin.

-First of all realize that turbulence poses no sort of harm to the aircraft. Aircrafts can withstand much more turbulence than we expect. As a matter of fact some aircrafts routinely fly directly into hurricanes for study purposes!

-Wings are pretty flexible. Even though the wings of the aircraft I flew on that dreaded March were flapping like a duck eager to fly South, the plane was intact. Wings are not really two metal pieces attached to the fuselage. Rather they ar ean entire piece going from one side to the other through the fuselage. Get the idea?

-Accept your anxiety instead of trying to overcome it. Just as bamboo stalks in the wind: bend down to anxiety instead of becoming rigid and breaking down. This has worked wonders for me. Fighting anxiety only worsens it for some reason.It’s just a waste of energy! So accept your anxiety, this will help you cope with it and ultimately overcome it more easily.

-Bring along some ginger candy! Ginger has been proved to help overcome motion sickness without the drowsy effects of medications. It has always helped me and it is also so flavorful! It keeps nausea at bay and prevents

What makes a great Italian restaurant – Part 2

What makes a great Italian restaurant?

Being of Italian descent myself, I have inherited through my father’s DNA a deep and unyielding Italian Food Snobbery.

This may sound impossible, but I have never eaten at Pizza Hut, nor have I ever tasted a Domino’s Pizza. Fifteen generations of my father’s family simultaneously rolled over in their eternal sleep on that dark day when I set foot inside an Olive Garden. (I didn’t immediately burst into flames, and the breadsticks were pretty darn good, so I guess it was okay.)

It occurred to me some time ago that many people (by a sorry luck of the geographical draw) have never eaten authentic Italian food, or even a truly great pizza. Most “Italian food” in most of the United States comes from national chains that lack the atmosphere, authenticity, and quality of the Great Italian Restaurant Experience.

Atmosphere:

A great Italian restaurant should be dimly lit, with candles (preferably in old wine bottles) burning at each intimate booth or table. Stucco, arches, and Mediterranean-themed artwork are a must. It should feel like you have stepped into a trattoria in Rome.

From the maitre d’ (or hostess), right down to the busboys, there should be a pleasing degree of friendly service, as if you are a welcome guest in their home. Service should be impeccable, but still very, very personable. In Italy, waiters are highly esteemed, because they do their jobs astonishingly well.

Authenticity:

A great Italian restaurant is owned and operated by an actual human being who has a passion for cooking (and eating!) good Italian food. Not a corporate board of directors trying to figure out exactly how many black olives can be taken off the salads (in order to save money and maximize shareholders’ dividends) before customers start complaining.

I often joke that “If it wasn’t cooked by a fat hairy guy named Tony, my dad wouldn’t eat it!” (and I do possess a valid license to make an ethnic joke like that).

Quality:

I hate to perpetuate a stereotype, but Italians ARE passionate about food, and this passion should show itself in the quality of the meals served in a great Italian restaurant. Fresh ingredients, sublime sauces, and wonderful seasonings should prevail in traditional AND more innovative dishes.

And these things are what makes a great Italian restaurant. Buon appetito!

How to save money while visiting Rome – Part 1

Rome is a very interesting city as it has many historical places as well as contemporary places to see. The only problem one faces while visiting Rome is the budget as the expenditure there always exceeds the estimated budget. The simple reason for this is ‘Rome is an expensive city’. Everything there is costly and even exchanging dollars for euros costs us a lot as the exchange rates are high. We can do nothing in such situations except of course saving money wherever we can. Planning perfectly makes this task bit easier.

Some important points about how one can save money on a trip to Rome-

Lodging

# Though the costs for lodging in hotels are high, staying in a bungalow at Flaminio Village, is a way of saving money on a Rome vacation. But many people may not like this idea as the places they want to visit may be a bit far from this bungalow.

# The best option for such people is to stay at a hotel near the places you want to visit. There are myriad hotels near the places which are most visited by tourists. It is better to stay in such places as the stay in these hotels are relatively cheap. Besides this, the places are very near and it saves travel fares one has to spend.

# There are many cheap hotels situated around Termini Station. Though Termini is far from the major

Food

Rome is as famous for it’s delicious food as it is for it’s rich culture. Since the food is so delicious, you tend to spend a lot of money on it if you are not conscious about it.

If you follow simple steps, you can spend little and still eat well in Rome.

# If you are having a coffee, breakfast, and lunch or dinner, it will cost you more if you sit and eat.

# They charge for service if you sit down. Besides this you will be inclined to give a tip to the waiter in that case. You can save a lot of money by self catering.

# Instead of having a good(not to mention it’s cost) lunch at a restaurant, go for a wine shop. In Rome, wine shops offer a wide selection of Italian sandwiches, and appetizers which are very tasty and also very cheap.

# The most famous thing about food in Italy is pizza. Have a slice or two of pizza for dinner which is not expensive at all

# Stay away from the American food as they are very expensive there. As you can eat them daily at home, try different Italian varieties instead.

# Have a heavy meal for lunch and cut a bit off dinner as in most restaurants in Rome, the prices for lunch are lot cheaper than that for dinner, though the items

Touring Rome by the Day: a Walk in the Park

It’s undeniable that there are so many beautiful places that you can lay your eyes on once you get in Rome. But when is the best time to enjoy it? Of course! in the morning, especially when the weather’s just right for some strolling.

Rome Day Tours Is All about Choices

When it comes to Rome day tours, everything will be according to your choice, and it will never be that hard as you’re provided with lots of them. First of all, you can have the option of enjoying this historical city all on your own. If you have a car, then you can simply get away from the usual places of interest of Rome and proceed to the countryside and nearby villages. Certainly, these locations are not covered by professional and commercial day tours. This will surely be a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Besides, travel doesn’t have to be super-expensive as there are trains that you can ride going from one point to another.

For those who are visiting Rome for the first time, however, it’s advisable to take on Rome day tours provided by local Official Tour Guides. They would cover numerous places that you can probably miss out if you’re only doing the touring alone. Besides, it’s great to have a private Official Tour guide with you, explaining the rich history of each monument and building that you’re going to pass through.

Normally, Rome day tours are referred to as the walking tours. This is because majority of world-renowned establishments are found close to one another. You can basically start your tour at 10:00 a.m. at the Roman Forum, where imposing buildings used to stand. While you’re there, why don’t you listen to the tales and anecdotes that will be shared by your tour guide? They can give you a glimpse of the political and social life of the Romans, which have been known for their philosophies and theories.

You can then proceed to the Colosseum where gladiators used to reign. They speak so much on the form of entertainment during the days of the emperors. But more than that, your Rome private day tours will provide you on the technicalities of the venue. After all, isn’t everyone always left in awe as to how the Colosseum came to be? Nevertheless, it’s ideal to bring in some cash with you, as you will likely get to pay an entrance fee. Besides, this will help you skip a very long line.

After lunch, you can then proceed to other magnificent edifices, even including those that are found at the back streets. These include the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Pizza Navona, and Trevi Fountain, among others. A fountain that has been the fruit of the collaboration of great Italian artists, such as Borromini and Bernini, is found within the area too.

Rome private day tours can be a lot of fun. However, it’s not only you who share the same opinion. So if you don’t want to have anyone taking on your spot, it’s always best to book your private tour days ahead, especially if it’s going to last for some days.

Car Hire Italy: Where to go & what to see

Italy is the boot-shaped peninsula in the middle of the Mediterranean. It stretches from the Alps in the north and almost all the way to Africa in the south. It is perhaps best known for its contribution to fashion, flashy cars and as the birthplace of pizza.

The biggest city in Italy is Rome, and it’s also the capital and the most famous of Italy’s cities. It serves as a good starting point from which to explore the rest of the country. In Rome itself, you’ll find a wealth of ancient roman sites that are definately worth visiting, especially in the Colosseo district, which is the heart of ancient Rome. Here you’ll find the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Forum of Augustus, the Forum and Markets of Trajan, the Capitoline and all its museums. While in Rome you should also make time to see the Vatican City, which is the independent papal state as well as being the world?s smallest state. Here you can visit the Sistine Chapel.

Italy Car Hire Tip: When in Italy you’ll always drive on the right. Drink driving is a serious offence and the limit is 0.5 milligrams which is almost half that in the UK and Ireland (0.8mg). The minimum age for driving in Italy is 18.

While most of the major cities in Italy are located to the north of Rome, no trip to Italy would be complete without a visit to Naples (Napoli). It was here that the original pizza was invented so you simply must try one during your stay.

Also while you’re nearby you can visit Pompeii, which was famously preserved by the erupting Mount Vesuvius in 79AD and is just about 15kms away on the other side of the mountain.

Italy Car Hire Tip: While the Italians have a bad reputation for driving, this is largely fading, as the city centres become less overrun by cars. The exception to this rule is Naples, which is considered bad by Italian standards! Also, though the crime rate in Italy is quite low, there are parts of Naples you will want to avoid so be careful especially at night.

Returning north and passing Rome, and moving up the western coast on the E80 you will come to a series of sites along the coast that are all well worth visiting. Livorno is modern Italy?s 3rd largest port on the west coast and in the past it was a major port for the western Mediterranean.

Some 20kms north of Livorno is Pisa, home of the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. There are plenty of other architectural wonders to see in the city besides the tower, so don?t forget to check them out too.

Italy Car Hire Tip: The maximum speed limit in Italy is 130km/h on motorways, 90 km/h on the open road and 50km/h in towns. But bear in mind that the official speed limits are reduced when the roads are wet to 110km/h on motorways and 80 km/h on the open road. The motorways are tolled so be ready with a credit card or some change.

Next stop is La Spezia, which is home to one of Italy?s biggest military company?s, Oto Melara. The town is also a great set off point for those wishing to explore the Cinque Terre National Park. This park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and includes 5 beautifully picturesque villages, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, that are all worth stopping off at.

This should bring you neatly to Genoa, which was the European Capital of Culture in 2004. While visiting the city you could make time to visit the Aquarium, which is the largest in Europe. Other sights to see include the Naval Museum, the Chiossone Museum of Oriental Art and the historical city centre which is the biggest in Europe.

Italy Car Hire Tip: More and more the city centres in Italy are becoming pedestrianised. This means that if you’re driving, you’ll have to park your car in the suburbs, preferably in a supervised car park as opposed to the side of the street, and then walk (or use public transport) into the city centre.

After following the coast for a few more kilometres and then turning inland on the A6, you’ll find yourself heading for Turin. Turin was the first capital after Italian unification, though it lost this title later. Turin is the home of FIAT that was largely responsible for the city?s recovery after WWII. Other sights include the Mole Antonelliana, the Valentino Park and the Palazzo Madama.

Turning east along the A4 you will find yourself heading for Milan. This city is very much one of the fashion capitals of the world. Don?t forget to do a little shopping in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, which is a shopping mall in a converted 19th century palace. While here you could also visit the Cenacolo Vinciano, which is were Leonardo da Vinci painted ?The Last Supper?, but it’s recommended to purchase the tickets months in advance, though you can buy cancelled tickets, if there are any, in the morning.

Continuing east along the A4 you should eventually arrive at Venice, which is certainly one of the most famous cities in the world. The city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon, and it occasionally floods during Acqua Alta (“High Water”). You will have to leave your car outside the city as none are allowed within the city bounds. While here don?t forget to visit Piazza San Marco and take a Gondola ride!

Bologna can be found on the A13. While here you could visit the oldest university in the world, Alma Mater Studiorum, founded in 1088. While in the city you should also check out the Tower of the Asinelli and Tower of the Garisenda, which are two of the few remaining towers left in the city. It is hard to imagine what the city looked like with 180 of these during the 12th century.

Continuing south along the A1, will bring you to Florence (Firenze) which is considered to be the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. While here you should visit some of the museums, which feature some of the works of such greats as Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, Dante and Machiavelli. In the Uffizi Gallery you can find The Birth of Venus by Sandro Boticelli and in the Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze you’ll see Michelangelo?s David.

Important tips to remember when traveling

Preparation for Travel

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

To Travel

Traveling can be the most exciting, the most exhilarating and possibly the most hectic and filled with hassle verb anyone has come up with. Some people think of the romantic evening they had while others think of the pain going through airports, reservations and lines. I have found that many people like to travel in different ways, some people like the thrill of going to a country and just exploring the hidden mysteries tourists almost never see, while others like to feel safe and plan every step of their journey 12 months before they even go. Depending on your style I hope this may be helpful to the traveler in all of us.

The First Step

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

Where to go?

For the planner of 12 months

Let’s pretend you are sitting at your desk wondering where you want to go. You have absolutely no clue as to where to start. You’re tired of other people bragging about their vacation in Fiji or Rome, and you pray that you your vacation doesn’t end up like the one your cousin took last year, which was a disaster. What should you do? You want to see the world, but one little bit at a time to fully absorb the experiences that will last with you for a lifetime. You must start by asking where you want to go and will the budget you have will give you a good enough experience. Budget does matter, if you want to go to Rome and have a low budget, you may not have a very nice hotel room but at least you got there. If you have that same budget and want to go to Napa Valley, California you may get a very nice experience. This doesn’t mean you will have a horrible time in Rome or an absolutely wonderful time in Napa. It just means that in Rome you may not see all the tourist spots. But like I said there are a few people that like to go-out-on-a-limb as they say. This makes the trip very exciting but can be dangerous if you don’t know the way. In Napa you may also have a very bad time depending on the service and the people there, nothing is really set by budget, and it really depends on how you enjoy the experience. Ask yourself why you want to go to where it is you want to go, this may help in deciding what is important in

Now I Have Discovering Rome Apartments I Won’t Use a Hotel Any More

My wife and I had visited Rome previously, although many years ago, being just married, we didn’t have the children, so it was easy for us to check into the nearest hotel, nothing much to consider. When planning this trip, we realised quite early on that accommodation arrangements would have to be significantly different this time around.

We checked a few hotel websites, and it seemed we would have to book multiple rooms, possibly a double and a triple; this was going to be quite expensive. My wife came up with the idea of trying to find a short stay Rome apartment. I was not so sure this would be a good option be we agreed to give it a try.

We departed from London, on a Ryan Air flight to Rome, our three children were excited, the oldest especially as she had recently begun studying Italian at school. The flight was quite comfortable and certainly great value for money.

Upon landing in Rome, we asked a taxi driver to take us to our luxury Rome apartment, which was located near Piazza Navona. I was looking forward to seeing where we would be staying, as the price was a very reasonable 145 Euro per night, a significant saving over a hotel.

I have to say I was somewhat surprised by our apartment in Rome, it was far better than I had expected it to be, it had two large bedrooms, a very comfortable living room, a fully equipped and spacious kitchen and a well appointed bathroom. Had we been staying in a hotel, we would have been forced to congregate in one of our rooms, with no space to relax. Instead, by renting an apartment in Rome, we were equipped with a real home away from home, giving us space to unwind and kick back after a day’s sightseeing.

We had a great time during our visit; the highlight for me just has to be the authentic Italian food we ate every night. Two restaurants come to mind, which were of very high quality and enjoyed by the whole family. Firstly the II Matriciano, which serves amazingly tasty food and is very good value, secondly, and my particular favourite, was Taverna Trilussa, with its gourmet Italian cuisine and traditional surroundings; I really felt I was part of Italy.

Now I have tried a short term apartment rental in Rome, I will definitely think twice before booking a hotel room in the future. By staying in an apartment, we were able to enjoy our stay far more than had we been expecting, it gave us a wonderful base from which to explore this splendid city. The website we used to book our accommodation was a specialist in renting details Rome apartments you should really check them out if you are visiting the city, especially if you are a family group, and it just makes so much more sense.
