Rome Before A Cruise

Hilary | Feb 20, 2010 11:05 AM

My husband and I will be leaving from Rome on a cruise this coming summer. We will have 2 1/2 days--3 nights there before the cruise. We have arranged for a 1/2 day tour on a Friday afternoon, a full day tour on Saturday and a morning tour on Sunday. We have three evenings to fill (with a nice dinner) and maybe a walk etc before we transfer to the ship on Monday. My travel agent told me of a restaurant called La Cisterna, raving about it. We want a true experience, not just a tourist trap. Any feedback on this restaurant, and any suggestions on where to eat each night? We are good walkers, doesn't have to be fancy, although one evening a "nice restaurant" would be fine. We love to browse food markets, if there are any around. Any must see/eat places to go? We will be staying at the Cicerone Hotel. Don't know much about it or it's location. Thanks for your help.
