Worth getting out of bed for
Crossing Condotti's concierge is on hand every day to assist you with anything you might dream up (or make suggestions, for those less imaginative). They can fill you in on current exhibitions, recommend dinner venues or arrange a hire car – whatever you need. Rome delivers tourist bliss without much effort: a stroll along pretty much any road will lead you past centuries of history and almost inevitably lead somewhere fascinating – so step outside and follow your feet.
On Via Borgognona, Nino (+39 06 679 5676) has been feeding the glitterati classic Italian dishes with a Tuscan accent for decades. Over in Piazza Augusto Imperatore, Gusto (+39 06 322 6273) is justly famed for its pizzas, but in truth it’s a culinary polymath, with a restaurant, wine bar, cheese shop and kitchenware store – not to mention beautiful interiors. Porto di Ripetta (+39 06 361 2376) on Via di Ripetta specialises in innovative seafood dishes – the swordfish roulades are not to be missed.
Il Brillo Parlante (+39 06 324 3334) on Via della Fontanella is the perfect low-key lunch stop, with a well-stocked wine bar upstairs.
