When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and find the city’s best-value excursions

Although Rome is an expensive city, a number of the big sights are free, and it costs nothing to stroll the historic streets, piazzas and parks, basking in their extraordinary beauty.

Join the lunchtime crowds at this renowned bakery for a slice of delicious pizza: the pizza bianca (pizza with salt and olive oil) is legendary. There’s also fresh pastries and hunger-sating supplì (fried croquettes), plus a counter serving pastas and vegetable side dishes (; Via dei Chiavari, 34; 7.30am–8pm Mon–Fri, 7.30am–2.30pm Sat, closed Sun; pizza slice from £1.50).


A local institution, this trattoria is authentic, with a menu of traditional Roman dishes, a spartan interior and no-frills service. If you can find a seat at a pavement table, keep it simple with cacio e pepe (pasta with Pecorino Romano and pepper) and pollo alla cacciatora, ‘hunter’s chicken’ (trattoriacacioepepeprati. com; Via Giuseppe Avezzana, 11; closed Sat dinner & Sun; two courses with wine around £18).
