Where to Eat & Drink in Rome’s Centro Storico

Rome’s historic center is a dense and overwhelming place where tourist traps and fabulous food venues stand side by side. With a bit of strategizing, you can eat and drink really well in the Centro Storico. In the latest installment of my YouTube series KP’s Rome, I visit a few of my favorite places to eat and drink.

And here’s a round-up of places mentioned and visited in the video!

    Great video, ladies! I still need to check out the Jerry Thomas project one of these days..

  3. […] If you are up to traveling that way, why not, For 70 euros? Unless you miss a flight, you can have an interesting day. I recently set up a similar itinerary for a relative who wanted to fly from Sevilla to Italy using Vuelo. They were very inexperienced travelers, but it worked out fine. In my opinion the above is a great itinerary. I assume you haven't been to Italy before. My modification would be to skip taking the Metro from Termini to Colosseo, and just walk it if you are mobile. I always walk it. It's not the most scenic walk, but it is definitely a Roman neighborhood walk. It's kind of nice to approach the Colosseum from the streets, seeing it from a distance. From Termini to Colosseo is just a hair above one mile walk, so you get to see some neighborhood. I wouldn't eat there, but you can break up the walk by stopping for a prosecco or a glass of wine. I would leave going into the tour of the colosseo for another day. You don't have the time. Just look at it from outside. Then go to the Forum. it is on both sides of the streets. See both. Wind up in Piazza Venezia, a few blocks away. Lots of outdoor cafes. Still not good to eat, but nice sit outside places to see Vittorio Emmanuele, Roman life, and have a coffee or a wine. Work your way up Via del Corseo, leaving from Piazza Venezia, until you see signs for the Pantheon. Read up about it, and go in there. Then you'll need to start to hustle and go left to see Piazza Navona. Depending on how you are doing for time, you then have to make a choice. If you are at piazza navona or spanish steps, you have a 20 minute ride to Termini, then you wait for the train that runs every half hour, then you take the train for half an hour. If you have done your sightseeing and can get a cab from Piazza Navona or Spanish Steps straight to the airport, you can save a lot of time avoiding going to Termini, waiting for a train. If it's not the high point of rush hour, the taxi could have you in the airport while you'd otherwise still be sitting in Termini, waiting for the train to leave. In dead rush hour, cars can get blocked, so sometime train is better. You have to decide when you need to get back, You can eat great street food and gelato in Rome, but you have to know where to go. When people say just go to the nearest mom and pop, that assumes that most restaurants are good. In touristy areas most are pretty bad, so you have to do your research. Mom and pop and their son will be waving you in, but what makes good food is a talented cook. With a little research, you can find these talented cooks a stone throw away from the Colloseum, surrounded by soulless mom and pops serving spaghetti to foreigners. if you know where to look. Do your research on eating lunch in the Centro Historic. We can recommend some great places. Start here: http://www.parlafood.com/where-to-ea…entro-storico/ […]
