Rome in Winter 3-Day Travel Itinerary 2019

28/01/2019

My mum and I spontaneously decided to hop onto a plane to Italy and explore antique Rome offseason in January which turned out to be an incredible choice. We spent 3 nights in Hotel Milton Roma which we can highly recommend as it's only 15 minutes walk from the Colosseum and offers a delicious breakfast. We booked our flights so we'd have half a day on arrival and half a day on departure, making our trip 3 full days. Of course, we were not able to see all of Rome because it is simply a huge city with so much culture and history - you'd probably have to spend months and you wouldn't see it all. Anyway, we were able to explore most of the tourist attractions as well as a few spots off the beaten path.

5 Top Affordable Eats in Rome 2019


spaghetti alla Carbonara at L'Angoletto Romano

Spaghetti alla Carbonara at L'Angoletto Romano
Via Monterone, 14, 00186 Roma RM

Not far away from Pantheon, this restaurant offers incredible pasta and other typical Roman foods. Highly recommend you guys try the spaghetti alla carbonara - it's heavenly. 

Hosteria I Buoni Amici

Hosteria I Buoni Amici 
Via Aleardo Aleardi, 4, 86100 Roma RM

Far off the tourist crowds, this traditional Hosteria is well worth the 10 minutes walk from Colosseum! The atmosphere is super local and the employees were very charming. 

Margarita Pizza at Margherita 

Osteria Pizzeria MargheRita 
Via Praga, 11, 00144 Roma RM

Not far off Pantheon and Trevi Fountain, this restaurant is more on the modern side, however the Margherita pizza was still on point! And also not that expensive compared to other restaurants close to big tourist attractions. 

Maritozzi Romani con la Panna at Parenti

Parenti 
33, Via Ottaviano, 00192 Roma RM

On your way to or back from visiting the vatican, you MUST try a Maritozzi Romani con la Panna at the dessert restaurant and bakery Parenti. Absolutely delicious and our favourite pastry we tried on our entire Rome trip.

Gelateria della Palma

Gelateria della Palma
Via della Maddalena, 19-23, 00186 Roma RM

If you need a little dessert after the spaghetti carbonara, head over to this gelateria which is fairly close to Pantheon. Choose from 150 gelato flavours! A bit touristy and crowded but well worth it.
