The Best Ways to Spend a Day in Rome

The Best Ways to Spend a Day in Rome

When you think architecture, great food, and amazing landscapes, we’re sure Rome is one of the cities that come to mind - that is what Osteria Gia wants to channel while serving up the best Italian food in Jakarta. Say that all of a sudden you find yourself in Rome - but only for 24 hours. What do you do? Luckily, we’ve come up with some of the top activities you have to check out when you’re in Rome. 

Zoom around on a Vespa
Have your own Lizzie McGuire moment and drive around Rome on a Vespa! Vespa tours around Rome are booming, with guides taking you to the town’s centre to see churches, scenic lookout spots and even venture off of the typical tourist paths. Or, you could rent your own Vespa and explore the scenery solo.

Visit Vatican City
Only half an hour from Central Rome, the Vatican is probably the most iconic place to visit in all of Italy. When you’re there, you must see the Sistine Chapel at the Apostolic Palace, which is the official residence of the pop.

Shop 'til you drop
While Rome is known for its scenery and history, it is also one of the fashion capitals of the world. For high-end luxury shopping, or high street shopping alike, Rome has it all. Check out the famous shopping arcade Galleria Alberto Sordi and Rinascente Roma Tritone.

Eat ALL the food

Italy is famous for their carb heavy dishes and gelati - it’s not a true Roman experience without it! Go to Eataly, where all the Italian favourites are gathered in one place. Comprising of a variety of restaurants in an Italian food hall, it is your one-stop shop for all your Italian food needs. 

Rome maybe miles and miles away, but you can experience a little piece of Italy in Jakarta at Osteria Gia. Modeled after an Italian osteria, Osteria Gia serves up the type of comfort food you’d find at your Italian grandparent’s house. For a taste of an Italian restaurant in Jakarta, book a table here.
