Wine tasting

by Susumarie

Could anyone help me with nice places for wine tasting in the Rome area?
Thank you!

Re: Wine tasting

by travelgourmet

Wine tasting is usually a tour company out of Roma driving you to wineries and then to sample at the winery or a restaurant. You would have to check out wine tours in Rome to find the tours. Near Piazza Navona is the Cantina de Vecchio, a restaurant and wine bar. They don't offer wine tastings, but they do have a large Italian wine list to choose either a glass or bottle of wine. Four glasses of wine with a good meal here is a great way to wine taste. lol. Website for the restaurant with an English portion is:

Another great casual restaurant next door (about 50 yards to Piazza Navona with a great wine list, maybe the first wine bar concept in Roma, is Cul de Sac, located in Piazza Pasquino with outdoor tables to people watch. I have written a tip for Cul de Sac on my Rome pages, under restaurants. Ciao.

Trimani was a great wine bar that we went to--should be easy to find by google.

Travel Tips for Rome

The Roman "Lupa"- La Louve Romaine.

by breughel

Any good tourist will have learned that the foundation of Rome goes back to Romulus and Remus (precisely in 753 (!) according to Marcus Varron called "the most learned of the Romans") and that they were children of the princess Rhea Sylvia and the god Mars himself. The princess Rhea was the daughter of the king Numitor of Alba.
Just like Moses the two babies were put in a basket and entrusted to the floods to escape death. The guides will of course have told you their rescue by a she-wolf, the famous Lupa which became the symbol of Rome.

But did they tell you that in Latin the word Lupa has two significances: she-wolf and prostitute!
Now who saved our two cherubim's, a she-wolf or a prostitute?
Tout bon touriste aura appris que la fondation de Rome remonte à Romulus et Remus en 753 (date précise selon l'historien Marcus Varron !!!) et qu'ils étaient fils de la princesse Rhea Sylvia et du dieu Mars lui-même. La princesse était quant à elle fille du roi albain Numitor.
Tout comme Moïse ils furent mis dans un panier et confiés aux flots pour échapper à la mort. Les guides vous auront bien sur racontés leur sauvetage par une louve, la fameuse Lupa. Mais il ne vous auront peut être pas racontés qu'en latin le mot Lupa a deux significations: louve et prostituée! (d' où le terme français lupanar = bordel)
Alors qui a sauvés nos deux chérubins une louve ou une prostituée?

Between St' Angelo and Piazza Navona.

by breughel

Walking from Ponte St'Angelo to Piazza Navona goes through an ancient district of which I would recommend the Via Dei Coronari. This street existed already in the time of the ancient Rome under the name of Via Recta. The present aspect goes back to the 15th c. under pope Sixtus IV. Number interesting mansions of that time still exist. Well known is at nr. 156-7 the house of Fiammeta Michaelis the favoured courtesan of Cesar Borgia.

The name Coronari comes from corone i.e. rosary beads which were sold here as well as sacred souvenirs in many shops to pilgrims entering Roma by the Porta del Popolo and joining St Peters by the St' Angelo bridge.
With her 500 m length Via Coronari was the first straight street of the medieval Rome redesigned by Pope Sixtus IV.
The rosary shops have been replaced by antiquaries but one will still find ancient religious objects in their windows.

When walking from Piazza Navona to Castel St'Angelo my preference goes to the large Via Zanardelli with the view on the Palace of Justice and the walk on the left bank of the river (Lungotevere Tor di Nona) with the splendid views on the Castle, the bridge St'Angelo and the dome of St Peters.

I named this photo as ' the kiss for new century '.
When I sent these two valuable photoes to this couple in accordance with their name card, I knew that they came from a small town in Germany for welcoming the new century in Rome-this is a new ' Rome Holiday ' at the beginning of the new century.If this couple watch this page, please contact with me.

Great place near the Via Veneto

by raab about San Marco

The restaurant describes itself as a "Pizzeria", but the food is much better than a standard pizza place. The menu is diverse (while still centering on Italian food) and the service staff is very attentive (a bit unusual in Roma).

The ambiance of the dining area is light and airy, the designer using a nice combination of stainless steel and mahogony in the decoration to set a subtle Noveau Classe atmosphere. Best Pizza - Pizza w/ Pachini Pomodoro and Mozzerella Di Buffala

Best beef - Sliced sirloin steak
(Done to perfection with a perfect (but simple) seasoning.

The house red wine is great, but there's an extensive wine list as well.

wear pants

by CptCrunch767

no really wear pants, otherwise you will not beable to get in. they have a dress code and it basically goes somthing like no shorts , i think no skirts either for women. is wearing pants worth seeing the largest cathedral in the world? ummm ya i think so! not to mention the sistine chapel and along the way hundreds and hundreds pieces of art from all around the world... the one thing that i hated was for the longest time they took many of these pieces and put leaves where they thought they should be and turned them so "parts didnt show" but lately they ahve been undoing horrible things they have done to alter these pieces and are returning them to their original state. you can take pictures everywhere except the sistine chapel so make sure you have a lot of memory left in your didgital camera and your batteries are fresh!
