A gourmet route in Rome
To draw an example, a gourmet route of our personal food shopper in Rome, Sarah May Grunwald, a Sommelier & Food Blogger, leads to discover Campo dei Fiori and Ghetto. Here you can visit “Beppe e i suoi Formaggi”, the best cheese shop in the capital in her opinion, go through the stalls of the market of Campo dei Fiori, one of the richest in history in the heart of old Rome, where you can discover a variety of local vegetables, and cool down stopping at the Gelateria del Teatro, on Via dei Coronari, where there are also the antique shops of the city. These are only a few places you can unveil with Sarah.
