HOW TO: WHEN IN ROME

Travelling is one of the way you’re putting you out there. It’s a way to test if you can embrace the whole no routine lifestyle, or not. As a wanderer, I’m completely into this no routine lifestyle. Every time I’m overseas, I feel like the world is not what we imagine it is. Something more incredible that it seems to be, and each corner can definitely reveal something different for you. Learning from your experiences and travels is something you’ll keep only for yourself, unless you decide to share it with others. Keeping up with a Travel blog (and they are so many great one out there, I’m obsessed with World of Wanderlust and Tuula Vintage), is a great way to choose your next destination, if you are also a memberย of the Wanderer club. There is this impression of freedom, as if the world is just here for you to embrace the journey, just not only the destination.

As for my last trip, we went to Rome, and we just came back from this insane trip where we’ve embraced completely the condition of a wanderer travelling through European cities. Every day was kind of unexpected, and we discovered so many things we didn’t plan to see. Stumbling upon great places for coffees and food was definitely one of the perks of this trip. As for today, I wanted to share with you some places we’ve been to, and which I definitely enjoy. Rome is a food destination and is known for the incredible Italian food such as Pizza and pastas. What I didn’t know was that there was some coffees places and restaurants which have embraced the whole vegetarian, gluten-free and healthy lifestyle. Actually, as an addicted to this kind of food, it was so nice to be able to enjoy some Italian food the way I like it to be.

Here are some places you want to walk in when you’re in Rome:

1. Ginger

This place is in the Historic center of Rome, and it’s filled with people morning through night. The food is delicious – I had an Aรงai bowl and an amazing smoothie – and the place design is so great. It reminds me of New York and their amazing Juice bar I stopped by every morning.

2. Buddy

This place is incredible, but you might miss it when you’re taking a walk through the Vittoria Emmanuele / Toro Argentino hood. The concept behind the service is great; it’sย sort of a buffet and you can eat whatever you want. Anyway, I tested their Lattes; and the thing I adore about them is that they carry out some Almond milk. It’s so rare to grab a good Almond latte those days.

3. Ops

We stumbled upon this place as we weren’t searching for anything in particular. It’s definitely a place to test when you’re in Rome. The people are so nice, and they will do anything to give you what you want even though their english isn’t quite fluent as expected. They are known for their Vegetarian food and their delicious juices and smoothies. I test the Detox one, and this was one of the best Juices I’ve ever tested including those I tested at Juice Generation in Manhattan.

4. Kosher Bistrot

In the heart of the Eternal city, it’s one of those place you want to test. Grabbing either way a coffee or having a glass of White wine is such a pleasure. It’s located in the Ghetto hood, and their food is so delicious, especially the salads.

5. Gelateria dei Gracchi

If you’ve been following our trip through the Eternal Rome on Snapchat, you will know what I’m talking about. Nothing less than the best gelateria in Rome. This place is so small, but their ice creams, they are definitely worth the indulgence. The trip to go there after our Vatican visit-ish was hilarious and unforgettable.

It’s all for me concerning the places where to eat and grab a cup of coffee in Rome. There are so many others, but those are the ones I wanted to tell you about. They are definitely the best for peep who wants to eat less Pizza and pastas when in Italy. Have you been to Rome? What did you think of the food there? I’d love to know! x

  • Kevin Wagar

    Love all the food in Rome! We visited the Jewish quarter and had and incredible meal. I wish I could remember the name of the restaurant we ate at.

    • I love the Jewish Quarter, even small, it was so nice to be able to taste all those restaurants and places available!

  • Vyjay Rao

    Amazing pictures that make me hungry. But yes Rome has such a lovely spread to offer. When we were there we feasted on Pizzas and icecreams at some amazing and quaint cafes.

    • Haha, I bet so. When seeing those back again, I felt hungry for the acai bowl. YES to those dishes!

  • Beautiful photography! I would definitely love to eat around the city when I’m in Rome. I’m saving this for when I finally get there! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Let me know when you’re heading up! I’ll have more recommendations! x

  • Aditi Chauhan

    Increadible pictures. Loved the article ๐Ÿ™‚

  • So nice to see a different side of Rome through your photograph and blog post. What a foodie city! Great suggestions on where to visit, will need to keep these win mind for future travels.

    • Glad you enjoyed this post, and that’s why I love to share a City Guide. It’s such a foodie city! No doubt! x

  • sanketdhume

    Great pictures. Funny you say Rome is a food destination! I always thought of it more as an architecture/history destination, but of course, your pictures pretty much back your claim up! Lovely place!

    • After this trip, for me, it was both! Don’t forget about Gelaterias. They are the main thing to taste when in Rome!

  • I love Gelateria dei Gracchi! Rome has such amazing gelato! I get kind of overloaded on acai bowls and the like living in NYC, but it’s nice to know it’s there for people who want it!

    • YES! I’m so glad you know this one! I’m a huge fan of acai bowls, and in Paris, they just get around those – always late to the party, so for me, it’s was such a wonderful moment to be able to order one. It’s to be my favorite dish for breakfie!

  • Inรชs Pinto

    One of my favorite parts of travel is also stumbling upon unexpected places like that! I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of the gluten-free diet but it’s always great to know that the wonderful Italian food is adapting so everyone can enjoy it!!

    • YES, it’s hard to find restaurants adapting to gluten-free food, because Italian food revolves around gluten. But, even tho, there are options and skipping on Pizza and Pasta wasn’t an option, because it’s Italy, and you’re eating your way through the visits haha!

  • GeekGirlGoes

    I never thought of Rome as being a food destination, but these stunning pictures look amazing! And I love Italian food, so I’m sure I’d love exploring all these places too ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I never thought of Rome as a food destination, but I found out about this along the road, when visiting. Pizza is definitely more appreciable in Naples, but Rome has quite some features when we came around the topic “Food”. Italian food is the best right?

  • Tamshuk Saha

    Rome as a food destination is quite new to me too. It is wonderful how you found out a different and relatively unknown side to this city.
    The pictures are really tempting

    • Rome is an historic city, and it’s the first thing people think about. But, let’s be honest, food is also part of the trip! Thanks Tamshuk, I really appreciate it! I’m glad you liked those!

  • I am dying to visit Rome. So much to see, do, and clearly – eat! Thanks for sharing these spots; I’ll have to keep them in mind when planning my first visit there.

    • YES, Teresa! There are so much to do down there and let me know when you’re going. I’m going back sooner than later, and I’ll update it!

  • We were just in Rome last month, but we stayed at a resort outside of the city and the only time we went in was when we did a Rome by “night” (since you know in Europe… it is light until 10pm). I wish we would have been to really explore the city more, but it was just too hot and we had 4 kids with us. Glad you had an amazing time!

    • YES, Rome is quite hot during this season, and with 4 kids, you guys have courage! You have to explore more, because there are so much more things to do, but eating is the first!

  • Veronica Pototska

    Liana, please be honest with me! Did you eat it all by yourself? The foodies look to delicious to share with someone else!

    • Veronica, YES. I couldn’t share with anyone – even with my sister who were on this trip with me!

  • Claire

    The food in Rome/ Italy as a whole seems absolutely amazing! Do they have many gluten free options?

    • It’s hard to find gluten free options, but there are some restaurants proposing the options such as Buddy! And the food was YES amazing, Claire!

  • Dalal

    Thanks to you I am craving “Ginger”s” food now ๐Ÿ™ I really loved this place <3 Great post btw!
