Eating delicious food when on cheap city breaks to Rome with Jet2holidays may seem like a no-brainer, but there’s much more to the local cuisine here than pizza. Here are our favourite things to chow down on in Rome that will have you coming back for seconds.
Bomba Con Crema
Kick off your day of sightseeing with a local favourite – the Bomba Con Crema. It may look just like any old cream-filled doughnut, but get them when they’re freshly baked and you’ll discover that they’re anything but. They go perfectly with your morning coffee, too!
Mozzarella di Bufala
Usually served as an appetiser, Mozzarella di Bufala (Buffalo Mozzarella) is often served with an olive oil drizzle and cherry tomatoes. Trust us, this won’t be an appetiser you’ll be happy to share.
This classic Roman dish comprises of bucatini pasta served in a tomato sauce, and with guanciale – pig’s cheek. You may also find this dish served with pancetta, but purists will insist on guanciale, and who are we to argue?
Consumed by locals at any time of day, and even year for that matter, Gelato is Italian ice cream. However it’s not like any other type of ice cream, as it’s made with milk, cream, sugar and fruit and nut purees that will have your tastebuds tingling. Stick to the small gelaterias when visiting on cheap city breaks to Rome for the best Gelato experience.
