We’ve put some of our favorite experiences together in this list and are happy to arrange additional activities based on your preferences – just email us at hello@treasurerome.com!

Welcome To Rome

Welcome To Rome is an exciting new experience…

The seat of the glorious Roman Empire, Rome is a city filled to the brim with history but much of it can be difficult to understand – there’s just too much information to sift through! Luckily there’s a new show in town that is introducing the city of Rome to visitors and locals alike: Welcome To Rome. This multimedia show resembles an IMAX theater but it also features 3D plastics that reconstruct some of the city’s most famous sites. In just one hour, the experience provides a great overview of Rome’s history and is a great place to start your visit to the city. It’s educational and entertaining so kids and adults will love it.

Hours: Mon-Thurs 9:00-19:00 / Fri-Sun 10:00-21:00

Address: Corso Vittorio Emanuele II 203

Bioparco (Rome zoo)

Rome’s Villa Borghese park is best known for being home to the Galleria Borghese and its rich art collection but the park is also home to the Bioparco: Rome’s city zoo. Originally born in 1908, the zoo now has over 200 different animals, including mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians – from penguins and boa constrictors to giraffes and hippos. It also has a lush garden filled with mediterranean and exotic plants. For plant lovers, we also recommend visiting the Botanical Garden of Rome in Trastevere.

Hours: The zoo is open daily from morning to early evening. See hours here.

Address: Viale del Giardino Zoologico 20

 

Pizza Class

Food tours and cooking classes are great activities for children and adults alike! We can help arrange many fun walking food tours that will help you discover Rome’s culinary traditions but if you want to try your own hand at cooking, we’d suggest signing up for a pizza making class! During this experience, you’ll learn the art of being a pizzaiolo and the importance of using the best primary ingredients – vine-ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and wheat for the dough – while you bake a delicious pie to enjoy afterwards! For more information, see our TreasureRome Experiences.

 

Villa Borghese

Villa Borghese is one of Rome’s largest and most beloved parks: art lies around every corner and it’s full of fountains, museums, lookout points and more. If you’re in Rome on a sunny day, you could spend hours getting lost in Villa Borghese together with your family! One of the highlights includes the Laghetto (“little lake”) where you can rent row boats and take a little tour of this picturesque lake while swans swim by at your side. If you want a little exercise, you can also rent bikes or a rickshaw and ride through the park in a group! During the summer months, the Shakespeare Globe Theater puts on shows in a traditional wooden theater and of course you can’t miss admiring the city skyline from the Pincio, a large piazza at the edge of the park that looks out onto Piazza del Popolo.

 

Gladiator School

Rome is filled with ancient history so why not take the chance to live it rather than just admire it from afar? The Eternal City’s Gladiator School is run by the Gruppo Storico Romano and its a fun way to travel back in time and learn about the history of Rome’s ancient gladiators. Learn about the games of Imperial Rome, dress up in armor and simulate battles during this fun two hour experience.

Museo Mario Praz

Lying just steps from Piazza Navona within Palazzo Primoli, the House Museum of Mario Praz is a hidden gem right in the middle of all the action. The museum is spread across 10 rooms and features over a thousand works of art, including paintings, furniture and sculptures that belonged to Mario Praz (1896-1982), an Italian writer, literary critic and scholar of English literature.

The collection belonged to Giovanni Barracco (1829 – 1914), a politician and scholar with a passion for ancient civilizations, and was donated to the city of Rome in 1905.

The Best Healthy Restaurants In Rome

January always brings high hopes and plenty of resolutions for the new year – from health goals and travel plans to personal projects and career aspirations. Although we believe each day is a new opportunity to make your life as fulfilling as possible, there is something exciting about a fresh start so we wanted to put together a list of some of our favorite restaurants in Rome to help you meet your health goals in 2019.

The Mediterranean diet continues to be considered one of the best “diets” in the world and we feel very fortune to have many wonderful options in the Italian capital. But sometimes you want some more fruits, vegetables and salads to offset the pasta and pizza that abounds! Here are places we recommend to our guests when they ask us where to find a flavorful, healthy meal.

 

Ginger

 

With two locations in the heart of Rome, Ginger Sapori e Saluti is a beautiful restaurant with an ample menu full of delicious dishes and fresh fare. Open daily from morning to evening, it’s a great place to stop by for an açaí bowl at breakfast, fresh garden salads at lunch and artisanal pastas for dinner. With dozens of options on the menu ranging from quick bites to more elaborate entrees, Ginger is a chic place to get your vitamins and is sure to please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. We love the Palomba salad with mixed greens, pears, goat cheese, walnuts and fresh mint paired with a fresh smoothie (and lots of ginger). One a sunny day, grab a seat outside and watch the well-heeled locals stroll by along the cobblestone streets.

Address: Via Borgognona 43-46 and Piazza Sant’Eustachio 54-55

Stay: Our Grazia Family Home is just a short walk from Ginger.

 

Vivi Bistrot

Vivi Bistrot is another great all-day dining option with several locations in central Rome, from a lovely outdoor patio inside Villa Doria Pamphili park and a secret cafe in Piazza Navona to a new presence inside the Rinascente department store on Via del Tritone. It has a beautiful feminine flair, with freshly baked cakes and gluten-free options, plus hearty salads and a wide range of teas, freshly-pressed juices and smoothies and a seasonal menu that includes everything from sharable appetizers (like hummus and guacamole) to hamburgers, pastas and salads. We really like stopping by the Vivi Bistrot in Piazza Navona in the afternoons for a matcha tea and a slice of carrot cake – or in the evenings for an Aperol Spritz and some bruschetta.

Address: Villa Pamphili: Via Vitellia 102; Rinascente: Via del Tritone 61; Piazza Navona 2 and Via della Mercede 50

Stay: Our Navona Terrace and Grazia Family Home apartments are located right near Vivi Bistrot’s multiple locations.

 

Aromaticus

Nestled in the bohemian neighborhood of Monti, Aromaticus is a sweet gardening store, aromatic herb shop and healthy cafe all wrapped up into one. It’s a nice little spot to stop by for a casual lunch and enjoy a taste of healthy dishes like quinoa with pumpkin, tofu and hummus, freshly pureed soups in an array of colors (topped with fresh sprouts), vegan burgers and powerbowls. There are also a few dishes for fish and meat-eaters like beef tartare and cod carpaccio. And if you’re eager for a change from wine, Aromaticus has a nice selection of craft beers.

Address: Via Urbana 134

Stay: Our Apollo Terrace Apartment and Daphne Terrace Apartment are located right nearby (and if you’re traveling in a larger group, you can combine both apartments and book the Colosseum Terrace Residence which sleeps 13!)

 

Grezzo

Right next door to Aromaticus lies Grezzo, arguably Rome’s best raw, vegan and gluten-free gelateria and pastry shop. This little gem is beloved by raw foodies and gluttons alike for its rich chocolates and nutrient-rich ingredients – and the shop itself looks like its selling fine pieces of jewelry. Grezzo prides itself on using the highest quality organic ingredients in all of its sweets so look out for hazelnuts from Vitbero, Sicilian almonds, coconut oil and sweets flavored with agave. We love to pick up a few nut spreads for breakfast and a cone of dairy-free dark chocolate gelato. And if you’re in Rome around Valentine’s Day, may we suggest picking up an oversized chocolate heart for your sweetheart?

Address: Via Urbana 130

Stay: Our Apollo Terrace Apartment and Daphne Terrace Apartment are located right nearby (and if you’re traveling in a larger group, you can combine both apartments and book the Colosseum Terrace Residence which sleeps 13!)

 

Solo Crudo

Solo Crudo means “only raw” and we’ve got to admit this is our favorite place to recommend to raw foodies when they’re visiting the Eternal City. This juice bar and bistrot is an explosion of flavors and colors and sees beloved dishes adapted into raw recipes. Cacio e pepe is made with zucchini spaghetti, artichoke cream sichuan pepper and marinated artichokes; ravioli are stuffed with savoy cabbage, sweet potato puree and served with a grape sauce; and pizza is made with a cashew and buckwheat base, tart tomato sauce, cashew cheese and plenty of fresh basil. You’ll also find a selection of vegan sushi, soups and desserts (including a decadent chia and chocolate pudding with strawberry jam and cocoa crumble).

Address: Via Federico Cesi 22

Stay: Our Navona Terrace is the closest apartment to Solo Crudo which is located in the Prati district.

The 6 Best Winter Experiences In Rome

It may sound surprising but we think winter is one of the best times to visit Rome. In December, the city is illuminated by the warm glow of Christmas lights and each church set up a beautiful nativity scene for locals and visitors to admire. In January and February, after the holidays, the crowds thin and many travelers are treated to spectacularly blue skies and easy access to the city’s main sites. And in March, the temperatures start to pick up but tourism remains low – meaning you’ll enjoy more of a local atmosphere as you tour the Eternal City.

Plus you’ll save on accommodations! TreasureRome apartment prices are lower in the “off season” and you can save even more when you book directly through our website. Take a look through our apartments to find the best fit for you and your family and get inspired with some of our favorite ways to enjoy Rome in the winter season!

 

1. Sip a cup of tea at Babingtons

Located at the foot of the Spanish Steps in one of the world’s most famous and beautiful piazzas, Babingtons is the place to be on chilly winter afternoons. The historic tea room celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2018 and continues to attract artists, intellectuals and travelers to sip a warming cup of tea or coffee in its cozy wood-paneled rooms. The afternoon tea is a decadent affair, with a tiered tray filled with scones, tea sandwiches, biscuits and more, and we also love stopping by for eggs at breakfast. Babingtons is only a 5 minute walk from our Grazia Family Apartment!

2. Take an Italian Cooking Class

Italy is a country famed for its excellent culinary traditions so why not try your hand at making homemade pasta with your very own personal chef? There’s nothing more fun than spending time cooking up something delicious on a chilly winter day and then enjoying the fruits of your labor during a long leisurely lunch or dinner! TreasureRome works with a certified chef to arrange personalized cooking classes, private at-home dinners or special events (a birthday brunch, graduation lunch, wedding party or anniversary dinner!).

3. Take part in a VIP Shopping Experience

With its longstanding sartorial traditions, no visit to Italy would be complete without some shopping. We can arrange a very special shopping experience for our guests that introduces them to the world of Made in Italy products. The tour includes a visit to some of Rome’s premier artisan shops where you can order a handmade dress, custom-made shoes, customized jewelry and your very own unique leather purse.

4. Catch a show at the Rome Opera

Step into Rome’s elegant Teatro dell’Opera for an enchanting opera or ballet while you’re in the Eternal City. This 19th century opera house has an exciting calendar of events and wonderful shows during the winter season, including Swan Lake (28 December – 6 January), La Traviata (12 – 26 January), Carmen (2 – 10 February), Anne Bolena (20 February – 1 March) and Orfeo ed Euridice (15 March – 22 March).

Perhaps the most incredible aspect of Rome’s opera house is the affordability of the tickets. Seats in the upper gallery begin around €20-30 so don’t miss the chance to see a show. For the full program, see the Teatro dell’Opera website.

The Rome Opera is located close to several of TreasureRome apartments, including the Opera Residence and Colosseum Terrace Apartments.

5. Take a day trip to Naples

Vedi Napoli e poi Muori – See Naples and Die. The seaside city is one of the most mesmerizing in Italy and is enjoying a modern Renaissance thanks to a cleaned up image, the popularity of the Elena Ferrante Neapolitan novels and its strategic location as a gateway to Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and other attractions in southern Italy. Why not spend a day in Naples while you’re in Rome? The train is just over an hour or we can arrange a private driver and guide to accompany you while you explore this fascinating place. From Neapolitan pizza and Italy’s best coffee to Baroque architecture and sweeping views of Mount Vesuvius, there’s a lot to love about Napoli and it’s one of our favorite day-trips from Rome.

6. Enjoy a guided tour at the Vatican

The Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica are some of the most most iconic sites in the world but if you visit Rome in the winter, you’ll benefit from fewer crowds and more space to enjoy the art inside. TreasureRome works with engaging, licensed guides to take our guests throughout Rome so let us know you’re itinerary and we’ll be happy to curate a personalized schedule to fit your time and interests in the Eternal City!

When NOT To Visit Rome

What is the best season to visit Rome? We really don’t know…The right question should be instead: when not to visit Rome?

FALL

The sun is often there: days in September are still warm and keep that sweet taste of summer. It’s the period of the harvest and of the historical “ottobrate romane“, the Sunday trips (sometimes they took place also on Thursdays) Romans used to take until the twentieth century, but that still recall the good weather and the desire to enjoy the city. Theatres reopens and from November we are getting ready for Christmas. Lights and decorations make Rome even more beautiful and magical.

WINTER

Grey is not a common color for the Eternal City, despite the cold air and the clouds. In fact, the sun never completely leaves it, even if you can expect rain (and, very rarely, some snowflakes). Restaurants and pubs are crowded, Rome lights up and there is so much to do: exhibitions, shows, concerts, events. It’s also the perfect period to discover food and art.

 

SPRING

The beautiful season is in the air: Rome smells of flowers and rebirth. Romans organize picnics in the parks, they start to stay outside bars and restaurants. They organize walks and historical-cultural visits outdoors. The temperature is really pleasant and, although it may rain, its colors become warmer. There are still many exhibitions, events, theatrical and musical performances to choose from.

 

SUMMER

It’s hot, very hot! The whole life of the city moves outside. Some pubs and bars close and move to the Tiber river and you can eat and and drink al fresco. The music festivals fill the parks and stadiums, the Globe at Villa Borghese is full of performances and the weekend you can go to the Roman coast. Rome dresses up in every corner and its sunsets alway leave you breathless.

What To Eat For Breakfast In Rome

Spending a vacation in Rome is an experience into art, culture and food. You have the opportunity to discover the Roman lifestyle, all the traditions that made the Eternal City one of the most famous cities in the world.

So, where should you begin? Let’s start with breakfast!

Italians don’t usually have a very big breakfast, but they make sure to start a brand new day with a cappuccino or espresso and a freshly baked cornetto. It’s the recipe for a good morning. Talking about cornetto, you’ll have a great array of options. You can find it with different shapes or names, like saccottino, danese or fagottino, such as semplice (plain), crema (custard), cioccolato (chocolate) or nutella, mele (with apple), frutti di bosco (filled with berries), marmellata (different kinds of jam filled), miele (honey) or integrale (made with whole grains).

But if you are loooking  for something else, you can also have different kind of pastries, like bomboloni (fried and filled with cream), biscuits, ciambella, cakes, muffins and maritozzo, the typical Roman pastry filled with whipped cream. You only need to pop into one of the many bars or cafe’s and make your choice.

Cappuccino and maritozzo (credits @apples986-Instagram)

If you prefer a savory breakfast, you can also opt for a fresh fruit juice and a tramezzino, which is a fresh sandwich with mayonnaise and, for example, tuna, tomato, salami, ham, eggs,chicken salad…If you are really hungry, you can choose from all those cafe’s that serve omelette or salty snack with salmon or bresaola filling. Even if the traditional Roman breakfast is sweet! If you feel like a slice of pizza or if you are not sure about what to eat, you can also go to a forno (bakery) or a pastry shop.

The best piece of advice we can give to you is to take a seat, relax and enjoy your time in Rome, from breakfast to lunch.

How To Avoid Tourist Trap Restaurants In Rome

Rome, and Italy in general, are (also) famous for food. When you visit a City for the first time, or even when it’s your second or third time in a place, unfortunately you can encounter a tourist trap. An unpleasant experience, which can turn into a waste of money and even expectations. You have to be careful if you want to eat well.

How can you recognize a tourist trap, in order to avoid it? First of all, they are often located close to the most famous monuments. These are 5 signs more you should consider.

Hw to avoid tourist traps

Go off the beaten path

When you enter a restaurant and you find all the plates and ingredients translated in 5 or 6 languages, maybe you‘ve just picked up the wrong one. Probably it’s also close to the busiest area of the city. Try to run away as soon as possible, because you’ll probably eat something you won’t like. Lose yourself in the  Eternal City, walk around in the side roads, away from the obvious places, and you’ll discover better restaurants.

You find too many asterisks in the menu

In Italy all the ingredients in the menu that are frozen and not fresh must be indicated with an asterisk. If there are a bit too many asterisks – usually used for vegetables, fish or fried food – and even the pasta or pizza are frozen, you’d better escape.

Regional dishes in the wrong place

If you go to a restaurant in Rome and you find some regional dishes from another areas of Italy- like ‘trofie al pesto’, pasta with basil pesto, which is from Liguria, or ‘pasta alla norma’, pasta with ricotta, tomato, aubergine and basil which is from Sicily- there is a problem. When in Rome, try traditional Roman dishes, like cacio e pepe, amatriciana, coda alla vaccinara…

You don’t see locals

You don’t see locals around. On the contrary, the restaurant is full of tourists like you. If a restaurant or a pizzeria offers you a “tourist menu”, there are many chances you’re going to eat in a tourist trap. A good restaurant doesn’t usually have a menù like this. Maybe has some “dish of the day”, which is a different thing. And Romans go there to have lunch or dinner.

You don’t find that restaurant in a guide

Carry out research in advance. Check the local guides, read newspapers, have a look on websites. Don’t decide at the very last moment, otherwise you’ll probably too hungry to make the correct  choice. If you can, plan your holidays but also your meals.

Rome is full of good places to eat, don’t miss them! Check our blog for tips and book your holiday apartment with us: you won’t regret it!

 

Streets of Rome: Via Del Governo Vecchio

This street connects Piazza dell’Orologio, whose name comes from the clock placed on the tower of the Filippini convent built by Borromini, to Piazza del Pasquino, one of the famous “talking statues” of Rome. Via del Governo Vecchio is a really characteristic street a few steps away rom Piazza Navona and Campo De’ Fiori, a place not-to-be-missed because it keeps many features of the Eternal City: history, shopping, traditional Roman cuisine.

There are many clothing stores, even vintage ones, where to look for the most trendy clothes, accessories and shoes. A true paradise for all shopping addicts! But there is something more. Here you can find unique places, such as Altroquando, an artisan bookshop where you can also taste beers; Caffè Novecento, with its particular atmosphere, where you can start your day with a good cappuccino and a croissant; or CamBiovita, a pastry shop which offers organic products also suitable for vegetarians and vegans. For those who want to have lunch and dinner, they can choose from several restaurants and pizzerias. In this street you can also find historic buildings and small shops, that give it that so peculiar look. It’s the ideal place to have a walk.

You need love, but also carbonara

Via del Governo Vecchio is a place to be discovered and appreciated in all its different aspects, perhaps before taking lots of pictures at the famous (and beautiful) Piazza Navona.
Rome is full of hidden gems that help keep the charm of past times untouched, such as Via dei Coronari or Passetto del Biscione, which are located in the same area.
