Favorite places in Rome.

 

Capuchin Crypt under the church Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini

It’s at the bottom of  Via Veneto at the corner of Piazza Barberini. It's humbling.

 

That's near Villa Borghese. A beautiful park with gardens and a lake where you can rent a rowboat and paddle (or is it oar) around and see turtles and fish. There are also peddal buggies to rent. 

 

Chiesa Sant'Ignazio

Via del Caravita, 8A 00186 Roma

Near the Pantheon

Walk in, look up. Then walk to the center of the church under the dome and look up again. You'll be quite surprised.

 

Nerone

Restaurant near the apartment where we lived. Family ownded. We ate here often.

 Via delle Terme di Tito, 96 00184 Roma

 

It’s about two blocks from:

This great historic place:

Has Michelangelo’s statue of Moses

San Pietro in Vincoli

Piazza di San Pietro in Vincoli, 4a, 00184 Roma

  

Pizza Navona

For years in the 1600s-1800s, they would flood the piazza with water and have mock ship battles.

Great place to hang out and people watch.

  

Bar in the corner at Campo dei Fiori

Can’t remember the name, but you’ll see it. Always full. Big barrel of peanuts. Good food and fun crowd.

 

Café Capranica

Capranica Srl

Piazza Capranica, 104, 00186

Owned by friends. Great wine and food. 2 blocks from the Pantheon

 

Almafi Coast south of Rome

Altrani on the Amalfi Coast. It's a tiny village full of stairs. Wonderful place to just wander. This restaurant is great: http://bit.ly/1RmG1qe

 

Positano is beautiful. Great restaurants with local fish and veggies. It can be crowded with tourists in the summer.
