Day 16: Rome, Italy - One day 16 of our round the world trip, it was our final day in Rome, Italy. We started the day visiting Mercato Testaccio, a delicious food market. After walking around and eating at the market, we then took an easy afternoon, before going to Galleria Borghese and having a delicious Italian dinner to finish the day.
00:38 Mercato Testaccio - Although it was a traditional old market in Rome, Mercato Testaccio has been remodeled and repositioned a couple of times to its current location, which is a modern open air market full of delicious fruits and vegetables and restaurants. It’s a great market for a Italian Rome food tour as it’s a friendly environment and there’s plenty of delicious food.
Fruit stall - First thing Ying and I decided to eat on the Rome food tour of the market is eat some rapes and cherries, which were fantastic. Price - 4.5 EUR ($5.04) total price
Mordi e Vai - Next I went to a food stall called Mordi e Vai, and he specializes in some classic Roman food dishes, which he then adds to sandwiches. I ordered the panino con picchiapo, which was a little plain, but pretty good. Price - 4.5 EUR ($5.04)
La Prosciutteria di Enzo e Lina - The absolute highlight of this Rome food tour at Mercato Testaccio was going to La Prosciutteria di Enzo e Lina and ordering some prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella. Everything was good and the owners are both extremely friendly and helpful. I only wish I could have spoken Italian. The prosciutto was fantastic, but I was really blown away with the quality and taste of the buffalo mozzarella. Prosciutto and mozzarella - 5.5 EUR ($6.16)
Zoé - After having some salty food, I was ready for a juice, so we had an apple lemon juice which was slow pressed, and it was extremely refreshing. Apple lemon juice - 3.5 EUR ($3.92)
Strit Fud - Final stop on this Rome food tour at Mercato Testaccio, and I ordered a Panino con il Lampredotto, some kind of a sandwich stuffed with tripe. It was a little on the plain side for me.
Panino con il Lampredotto price - 7.2 ($8.07)
12:22 Villa Borghese Gardens - After the great food at the market in the morning, we then headed over to Galleria Borghese, where I had pre-booked tickets online. Galleria Borghese is a museum in Rome, and it has some similarities to the Vatican City Museums, but it’s much more low key and not as busy. Especially if you love museums, you’ll love visiting Galleria Borghese in Rome. Online tickets - 14 EUR ($15.69) per person
15:34 Fiaschetteria Marini Restaurant - For dinner, we walked over to an Italian restaurant called Fiaschetteria Marini Restaurant. The family owned restaurant turned out to be a really amazing place, with friendly service, and excellent food. The gnocchi alla Fiaschetteria was particularly delicious, but their mezzemaniche alla Amatriciana was also fantastic. Total price - 34 EUR ($38.10)
It was a leisure day in Rome, we didn’t try to do too much, but we had a great time eating through Mercato Testaccio and our final Italian food meal in Rome.
