We all know that Italians love to eat, but we actually love it so much that we have whole festivals dedicated to just one food. These are called sagra
and they take place in different areas at many different times throughout the year. They always have a special theme which depends on what season it is, which could be things like fish, wine or cheese. These are some of the most unusual things to do in Rome for travellers because it’s like an entire party is happening for something as normal as parmesan. Walk around the festival and try all of the mouth-watering food and wine, all whilst chatting and dancing with the locals in true Italian style. There aren’t always many tourists at a sagra, so you’ll be getting the most authentic experience you could wish for. To find out the secret places in Rome where these sagras take place, you can always just ask the tourist office.
