Around Town

It takes years as a local to even scratch the surface when it comes to activities, restaurants and sites to see of the Eternal city. So allow us to help you here with a selection of our favorite restaurants, cocktail bars and our top 10 free things to do in Rome!

Eating

There is no time for bad food when on vacation and learning through trial and error is just not an option on a short trip. Italy’s capital has no shortage of good restaurants. Everything from fine dining michelin starred restaurants to family owned trattorias. In every corner of the city you are guaranteed to find somewhere worth your while. The problem arises when you consider Rome counts well over 9000 restaurants which can be overwhelming and with tourist traps everywhere the vast majority of them are mediocre at best. These gems can be hard to find! Here at Crown Tours we put together a list to help you with some of the best that the eternal city has to offer.
