Rome next week!

I am going to Rome next Tuesday and have been many times before. I have been the the main tourist sights and woud love to experience something new or see something different. I haven't been to the Borghese gardens and would love to do the food markets. Any ideas? I am only in Rome from 11am until 3pm!

Try Testaccio, my favorite food market is located there although it has moved to a temporary location I believe.... Still in Testaccio but not sure exactly where. For a quick lunch, volpetti has a great tavola calda located on the street behind the main store. After lunch if time allows, you can visit the beautiful acatholic cemetery by the piramid, and/or climb up the aventine hill for the breathtaking views from giardino degli aranci as well as from the "keyhole"

For current what's-ons and other useful stuff, there's a handy monthly magazine given away in hotels etc, "A Guest in Rome".

Probably you'd be better to download a copy from their website - start here and click on the picture of its cover, over to the right of the screen:

For other places that you may have missed thus far, including the market in the Campo de' Fiori (daily, but don't get there too late!), have a look through:

4 hours only? Such a shame your time is so short in Roma. ;-) Enjoy your short stay.
