"THE ETERNAL CITY OF FOOD" Rome by travelgourmet

Rome Travel Guide: 12,350 reviews and 27,691 photos

Chow is Ciao

When one thinks of Rome, you think of the Colosseum, the Forum, ancient sites. Roma, ah, the place to go and the place to die for. More than sites, the city is also known for the artists that prepare your meals. The chefs of Rome say "see Roma and eat!"

What a neat city for those who admire not only the past but the present via the many choices of culinary delights. The most romantic and the most Italian for me was to eat dinner in Piazza Navona at Tre Scalini, at the outside tables overlooking the Square. Mama mia, My Italian half is weeping in joy just thinking about it.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:An awakening artists palate of history, while walking
  • Cons:NONE, Roma is roma, leave it be.

      thanks Dee. Octoberfest was last weekend in Westlake Village at the Stonehaus Winery in the Westlake Village Inn Resort property. It was great and I just finished a review with photos, travelogues and videos. Wow. I was up in Tehachapi for the Harvest at the Souza Family Vineyard and have yet to put up the harvest photos. Cold that day. Thought of what a nice town you live in. I love it in the high desert. :-)

    It all looks absolutely wonderful. To be able to stroll the streets at night and take in the beauty, must have been marvelous. I enjoyed Rome thru your eyes! Thanks!

    The B&B looks great. My visit to the Spanish Steps wasn't anything like yours. Not a flower sight!
