Rome and Vatican City Tours
Rome, Eternal City!
A visit to Rome is actually like a visit to several places in one. Today’s Rome is a bustling blend of the ancient world, the hub of Catholicism, and modern day 21st-century living. All of the many facets of Rome allow vacationers to pass easily through many eras at a moments notice.
It is with good reason that Rome is called “The Eternal City,” the settlement of the area dates well beyond 753 BC, the customary date of the founding of the city of Rome.
Rome is known for its food as much as it is known for its history and architecture. While locals will argue to the death about what are the most popular dishes to eat in Rome, here is a short list of some Roman food you will want to enjoy:
• Cacio e Pepe
- Al dente pasta tossed with a sauce made from fresh pecorino Romano cheese, cracked black pepper corns, and a bit of the pasta’s cooking water.
• Amatriciana con la Pasta
- A traditional red sauce made with San Marzano tomatoes, guanciale (cured pork), white wine, and pecorino Romano.
- Veal wrapped in sage and prosciutto then marinated in white wine and fried. Vatican City
