Shop at the Market at Campo de’Fiori
Shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables at the mercato is a way of life for many Romans.Lots of neighborhoods have their own markets,and the produce tends to be very high quality—perfect for preparing salads and sandwiches for a picnic.Even if you’re just visiting,you can immerse yourself in the local culture by shopping at the market.The one at Campo de’Fiori bustles with vendors every morning except Sunday and is one of the city’s most popular.
Eat Gelato at Giolitti
Rome has no shortage of excellent gelaterias,and many Romans are steadfastly loyal to their favorite.Giolitti,a few blocks from the Pantheon,is the city’s best old-school gelateria.It’s been around since 1900 and serves dozens of flavors in a rainbow of hues.If you’re getting yours to go—and it’s less expensive if you do—line up at the cashier and pay before ordering.A small cone gets you two flavors plus whipped cream.
See Modern Art at MAXXI
With so much amazing ancient and Baroque art,it’s easy to forget that Rome has some wonderful modern art museums too.MACRO is great,but MAXXI(Museum of 21st Century Art)is arguably the best place to see modern and contemporary art.The building itself is a huge draw—designed by Zaha Hadid,it’s all glass,big open spaces,and staircases that seem to float in the air.Currently on view is a retrospective of Olivo Barbieri,one of Italy’s most important contemporary photographers.
