Bernhard

Although Bernhard has traveled to countless cities, Rome has become his second home. His blog, Tourist in Rome, is filled with up-to-date insider knowledge and helps travelers plan the perfect trip to Italy, especially when it comes to where to eat.

Why Rome?

Rome is the most wonderful city in the world, and it won’t even take a day for “la dolce vita" to work its magic on you, along with aperitivo and a good meal, of course. It’s a foodie paradise, and it will challenge and surprise your idea of Italian cooking. From street food dishes influenced by the city’s Jewish heritage to the freshest, regional ingredients, mindblowing pasta creations, and great wine, the flavors here are quite unique. Take a food tour, and ask locals for recommendations too. There’s so much to discover in Rome, but don’t let the landmarks overshadow lunch — they deserve equal billing.
