From the Imperial Forums, passing through the Venice Square (Piazza Venezia), you will arrive at the heart of Rome’s shopping area: Via del Corso, Via Frattina, Via Condotti, are the streets you should be looking for if you are a fashion lover. But there is more to see than admiring the clothes: a few meters from here you can find one of the legendary attractions of Rome, the famous Fontana di Trevi (Fountain of Trevi).
In the waters of Fontana di Trevi you can see the statue of Anita Ekberg in an evening dress as she played in the famous movie: “La Dolce Vita”. Besieged by souvenir shops, where you can go shopping and surrounded by palaces, it will surprise you with its beauty.
The stage that many tourists are curious about when they visit Rome is definitely the Coliseum. Built in the year 72 a.C. at the order of Flavia dynasty, the Flavio Amphitheatre, which could host an audience of 150 000, was the stage for a big variety of games, such as animal fights and gladiators combats, but also more cruel events, such as beasts tearing convicts. From Coliseum, you can walk towards the majestic archaeological area of the Roman Forum, which was once the political, economical and religious heart of Rome.

Tonnarelli a Cacio e Pepe ( pasta with cheese and pepper) is to Rome, like pizza is to Naples, as a Prosecco is to Venice and as flat bread is to Romagna. So, coming to Rome without tasting a plate of this speciality is a crime! It’s as if you came to Rome and never saw St.Peter’s Square or tossed a coin in the Trevi Fountain.
We know that everyone, Romans, and those who come to study or for work, have their own special places for this dish. We at Gli Artisti can recommend 3 places, but we would love it if you would share with us your favorite place and maybe we could create a map of the best Tonnarelli in the city of Rome. What do you say, let’s start!
