Taste the local food in Rome!
If you are in Rome, you certainly want to try some local typical dishes. I suggest you go and discover popular neighborhoods, like San Lorenzo, Testaccio, Garbatella, Pigneto. You will find "osteria" as well as more classic restaurants. Make your mobility experience count also from the culinary art's point of view! This can be also a chance to share experiences with your friend at the university and don't be afraid to engage local students, they will be more than happy to give you advice and maybe also come to eat with you!
