Italy is known for many culinary delicacies, including cheeses, meats and wines; but few can match the truffle in terms of market value. Gathering truffles is a time-consuming task, and as yet they have proved difficult to cultivate.

Some cities lend themselves well to bicycles as a mode of transportation, while others seem to create an atmosphere in which it is more intimidating to hop on a bike when everyone else is apparently driving something with a motor. In Rome many residents have long relied on bicycles to get around the city, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t do the same thing. If, however, you’d like to start with a set of Italian training wheels, then taking a bike tour of Rome or the surrounding countryside is an excellent option.

One of the greatest pleasures of a visit to Rome is eating your way through the city. Sampling local specialties like Roman-style artichokes, bucatini all’amatriciana, porchetta, and cacio e pepe (a “comfort food” pasta dish with grated pecorino cheese and black pepper), not to mention the city’s array of fabulous gelato shops.
But if you’d like to make those mouth-watering memories last longer than your vacation, you absolutely can – sign up for a cooking class in Rome and learn to re-create those famous dishes once you return to your own kitchen.
