Want to feel like you’re traveling with a local through the enchanting old-world city of
Rome? Created by a veteran tour guide and
travel consultant who spent much of her
childhood in Rome, the app lets you in on secrets usually
gained through hard-earned experience. You’ll learn tricks
for saving money, avoiding lines, and experiencing the city

Katie Parla’s Rome ($2.99)
A Rome-based food critic and contributor to
the New York Times, Bon Appétit, Food &
Wine, and Saveur, Katie Parla is an undisputed authority on Rome’s dining culture.
Parla has chronicled 175 of her favorite restaurants, pizzerias, gelatorias, brew pubs, bakeries, and wine bars, which
you can search based on your budget and location. You can
also use GPS to find fine dining on the go.
Hidden Rome ($4.99)
You don’t need an app to find monuments
like the Trevi Fountain or Colosseum, which
appear in startling glory as you explore
Rome’s Centro Storico. But if you’re looking to uncover more unusual destinations, Hidden Rome
keeps stock of Rome’s lesser-known treasures, such as
obscure museums, funky bars, and even a spooky church
decorated with skulls (if you’re into that kind of thing).
Rome Side Trips (Free)
If you have time to venture out of Italy’s
capital city, the surrounding countryside,
laden with medieval villages, hot springs,
and vineyards, rivals the charm of Rome.
You can sort through more than 250 destinations based on
price, region, and activity. You’ll also find guides to trains,
hotels, and restaurants, so you’ll have everything you need
to plan an amazing daylong or weekend excursion.
