Hi. I am traveling to Rome with my husband and two boys (7 and 10) in a few weeks.
We'll be there for 3 days before traveling to Venice for a Med cruise.
We're staying at the Albergo Cesari, on Via Di Pietra, near the Pantheon.
After spending a lot of time reading this board, here is our food itinerary so far:
Saturday morning arrive.
Saturday activity: hopefully sleep and walk around hotel vicinity
Saturday lunch: Armando Al Pantheon (reservation pending)
Saturday evening: walking tour of city highlights - ends near Trastavere
Saturday dinner: Ivo or Marmi in Trastavere
Sunday activity: Tour of Coloseum and Palatine Hill
Sunday lunch: ?
Sunday afternoon activity: leaving this one open. Maybe Villa Borghese if we're up for it.
Sunday dinner: Taverna Dei Fiori Imperali (we have our reservations already)
Monday: Tour of Vatican and St. Peters Basilica
Monday lunch: leaving this one up to our guide
Monday dinner: Somewhere low key in the Piazza Navona area - maybe Da Buffetto or Pizzeria Montecarlo (do I need a reservation for either?)
And of course lots of Gelato (will make sure to try Gioletti and San Crispino)
Does anyone have a recommendation for Sunday lunch near the Coloseum?
Any other recommendations?
