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.

Eating

FORNO ROSCIOLI 1

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 (anticofornoroscioli.it; Via dei Chiavari, 34; 7.30am–8pm Mon–Fri, 7.30am–2.30pm Sat, closed Sun; pizza slice from £1.50).

CACIO E PEPE 2

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).
