An assortment of colorful pottery in Turkey

Shopping

The Kusadasi bazaar is naturally the place to go for shopping. A Turkish blue eye, meant to ward off the evil eye, makes a great souvenir. Also consider a traditional Turkish kilim (a woven carpet) or a more luxurious knotted carpet. Cruise to Ephesus and look for handmade tiles and pottery in the Iznik design, with floral-inspired geometric patterns. Prices are negotiable, and the first offer by the vendor will be at least double what you should pay.

Statues in the Vatican Museum

HELIGA PLATSER

Utforska Vatikanmuseets enastående samling av gobelänger och klassiska statyer. Kliv in i Sixtinska kapellet och låt dig hänföras av Michelangelos takfresker. Gå sedan in i Peterskyrkan, en av världens största kyrkor, för att stå under dess enorma skyhöga kupol.

Pizza, pasta, and antipasta on a table in Rome

DET LOKALA KÖKET

Romare lever för att äta, oavsett om det är med familjen eller på ett utomhuskafé. För en autentisk smak av cucina romana, prova carciofi alla romana (bräserade kronärtskockor) eller spaghetti alla carbonara. Njut av panino (fyllda smörgåsar) eller italiensk pizza med tunn botten. Stilla sötsuget med en skopa gelato. Avsluta sedan kvällen med ett glas vitt vin från det omgivande Lazio-området.

SHOPPING

Gatustånden över hela staden är det bästa stället för souvenirer. Via Condotti erbjuder italienska designers skräddarkonst i rad. Besök ateljéerna längs med Via Margutta, eller indiska hantverkssäljare i stadsdelen Monti. Porta Portese har stadens största loppmarknad och la Rinascente, det första varuhuset.

INSIDER TIP

Konservativ klädsel (ej linnen eller shorts) krävs när man besöker Roms religiösa platser.
