Land of la dolce vita
Food is king
Book in with Eating Italy Food Tours (eatingitalyfoodtours.com) to sink salumi (Italian cold cuts ) and sangiovese wine in a cellar that predates the Colosseum, eat piping hot suppli (snacks) on the sidewalk, and meet local producers who have been baking, mixing and serving for generations in Rome’s favourite neighbourhood, the Trastevere region, south of Vatican City.
They love the good life
Not only will a visit to the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii take you into a land before time, it will become obvious that the Romans knew how to live the good life, even in 79AD. A tour will take you past the public baths where locals would relax in the steam room, the “takeaway” stores, and one of 35 brothels, with its “menu” painted on the wall.
Pompeii is one of the first stops
