On The Traveling Professor's small group tours to Italy, Rome is one of our favorite spots to eat. Take a look at 3 of The Traveling Professor's favorite places to eat while in the classic city of Rome: 

There are many, many places to eat in Rome. Here are The Traveling Professor's favorites on our small group tours to Rome:

Target:  An unusual name for an Italian restaurant, but our group was surprised by the good quality, excellent service, and the value. The wine selections were excellent, and at excellent prices. It is more on the modern side, but a good option for quality dining at a lower price. Give it a shot!

Ristorante Da Pacrazio:  This place is authentic, authentic, authentic.  Wonderful fresh pasta and dishes as well as meat dishes, it can be on the pricey side.  But where else can you eat where Julia Roberts ate while filming "Eat, Pray, Love".   The dining room upstairs is elegant but rarely do I recommend eating downstairs in a restaurant, however, Da Pancrazio is situated over the spot where Julius Caesar was murdered, over the Theater of Pompeii ruins.

Mercato Centrale:  Following up on the trendy food halls that have sprung up in other cities like Florence, we really love going to the Mercato Centrale.  Although it can be tough to find a seat, there are well over a dozen vendors selling fish dishes, tasty burgers, gelato, bread, cheese, vegetarian dishes.  It's got something for everyone.

The Joy of Inexpensively Flying Premium Economy Overseas

Flying Premium EconomyIf you are like The Traveling Professor, you abhor those overnight coach class trans-Atlantic flights from North America to Europe.  They are jam-packed, cramped, and they are practically impossible to get any sleep on.  You could always book business or first class, but that will probably cost about $3,000 or more.  But on a recent small group tour to Italy, we took an overseas flight from New York to Italy, I flew in comfort with a good 6 hours of shut-eye, for less than a coach-class seat.  See why Premium Economy is the only way to go to Europe.

The Professor just returned from a small group tour to Italy.  We saw a lot of great sites like the David at the Accademia and the classic Renaissance Italian art at the Uffizi Palace.  We enjoyed the charm and history of this great Tuscan city.  But when it came time to eat, we took advantage of the bounty of wonderful Italian food, Tuscan style. The best restaurants in Florence feature fresh vegetables, aromatic herbs, home-made pasta, organic beef.  Don't forget about the pizza, cheeses, fruits and of course the best gelato in the world.  Read about The Traveling Professor's ppicks for some of the best restaurants in Florence.
