The Rome city’s mild Mediterranean climate is another persuasive draw for visitors from the cool north,but for me the main draw will always be the pulsating energy of a place which lives life as a form of theatre.Travel in and around Rome,foods&restaurants suit for your family weekend vacation.

Rome travel

Roscioli

It took me a while to warm to Rome's ultimate deli restaurant:they can be a little haughty in here,which considering what you're paying is inexcusable.That said,on my last visit all was sweetness and light,and in any case,there's no arguing with food this good.A display case laden with exquisite Italian and foreign delicacies dominates the entrance(it's not just for show-outside of mealtimes,Roscioli is a shop,and many of the specialities served here can be bought to take away).It dominates the menu too:their motto is"what comes before cuisine",and the answer-top-quality ingredients-is what you get,in simple combos that aim to interfere as little as possible with their excellence.A couple of examples:a perfect starter of mozzarella bocconcini with Cantabrian anchovies,or a classic spaghetti all'amatriciana,made with artisanal guanciale bacon and pecorino romano cheese.Tables are close together in the brick and bottle-lined interior:the atmosphere is serious foodie concentration rather than romantic dalliance.The wine list is superb.
