Eating in the city of luvvvvv
So what even is the actual city of love? I am not so sure. Is it Paris? Venice? Well I am going with Rome, because lets be honest, it is most definitely a romantic get away. I was lucky enough to celebrate New Year with my boyfriend in this beautiful city and wow, did it impress. The sights were amazing, the people were lovely but mostly importantly, the food was out of this world.
I cant even begin to describe how much I ate on this holiday [I am well and truly hitting the gym everyday because of it!] From pasta and pizza to ice cream and tiramisu, it was beyond fantastic. So this valentines, if you are heading out to this city of love, here are some of the places I would more than recommend going;
We saw this within one of our travel books and it sounded right up my street so we decided to check it out for breakfast. It specialises in healthy food and juices. I had an acai bowl alongside a ginger juice, whereas my boyfriend had a octopus and potatoe 'box.' Both were great [so he told me!] and it was nice to have something healthier than ice cream!
I was craving a good cup of tea by the end of our trip so we decided to stop in here. It specialises in afternoon tea and even though we didn't have one ourselves, they looked amazing. This was lovely for a tea pit stop, however, it was quite expensive!
So I have to admit this was probably one of the saddest parts of the holiday. As we went over the New Year a lot of places were shut, in particular this cat cafe which I was desperate to go to [we went back twice as I was so distraught!] I didn't eat here obviously but it has fab reviews!
I know that typically you go to Paris to eat macaroons, but I just couldn't pass this shop window without going in. These were great for a small snack in the afternoon and there were so many flavours, you could have gone back ten times! Make sure you try the rose petal macaroon...
We went to this restaurant on our first night and it set the bar high for all of our other evening meals! They had all the Italian classics [I have carbonara as its my favourite] and just had a relaxing atmosphere. I would definitely recommend as its also right next to the Trevi Fountain!
There were just so many places to eat and so little time. But I hope you are able to enjoy some of the listed above. As a side tip, stop at any gelato shop [I went to the one by the Trevi Fountain three times!] - you wont regret it!
