Rome 2013 – The guide
by: Gambero Rosso • 5
Rome is a guidebook with the best food and wine venues that the city and its environs offer visitors.
Firstly, there is a brief summary of the ten recipes and ten products that are absolutely fundamental, the foundations underpinning a tradition that has made the city famous around the world.
Then there’s the actual easy-to-use guide, divided by macro-districts (with a few words about the artistic/
historical landmarks to see) so you can find the right place for any time of day. The best cafés for breakfast, the places for a quick, but high-quality, snack. The most fashionable restaurants, the trattorias serving the most authentic local cuisine, the shops where Romans go to buy speciality foods, the ice cream parlours and chocolate shops, the best-stocked wine bars.
To complete the picture there is, of course, a selection of the top hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs where you can recharge your batteries between food-and-wine expeditions.
A guide to suit modern travellers who never go anywhere without their tablet computer and who know how to take the time, and space, they need to enjoy everything delicious and delightful that only a city as unique as Rome can offer.
