What's better than food to remind you of your time in Rome?

Before hitting the airport, make sure you pack what really matters! Homemade pasta with delicious sauce has to be among the best souvenirs from Rome that you will be bringing back home. Castroni is famous for having everything one person can think of. There are many all over Rome, but the main one is in via Cola di Rienzo, right before the Vatican.

Don’t forget some truffle cream to spread on toasted bread or use to flavor your pasta. Spaghetti al tartufo is a combination you will have to try.

Sweet and savory jams to accompany the best cheese selection is also something to consider as one of the best souvenirs from Rome.

If you got used to the intense flavor of the Italian espresso, you have to bring back home a Bialetti moka. They come in any color and size. Drinking a real espresso back home will make you feel you are sitting in a Roman piazza all over again. 

This is definitely one of the best souvenirs from Rome!


When someone back home asks you where you got your gorgeous outfit, your answer will have to be Rome!

Italy is famous for its fashion, so when in Rome, don’t miss the chance to bring back some unique pieces of clothing as your best souvenirs from Rome pick!

The Monti neighborhood is famous for its peculiar and one-of-a-kind boutiques. The best place, however, to find interesting ideas and items is the Monti Urban Market.
