The best 5 brunches in Rome

Let’s be honest, Sunday brunch is not a Roman tradition. The Romans Sunday tradition was and still is to have lunch with relatives or friends for the usual Sunday lunch, provided with all Italian goodies. Starter, first with lasagne or fettuccine, second of meat, lamb or roast, seasonal salads, fruit and pastries. Sunday lunch was, and still is, definitive .. or practically indigestible.

For some time, fortunately, Rome is in effect a multi-ethnic and global city. Young Europeans working in the city, new or returning tourists and, in general, people from every corner of the world, neither more nor less than any big metropolis. Also for this reason the ancient and consolidated Roman traditions have opened themselves to uses and habits that did not belong to them.

In addition to Halloween, a fun tradition that is very successful especially among the youngest, for some years it is the turn of Sunday Brunch. A lively and fun alternative to the usual Sunday lunch with friends, based on Italian and international cuisine.

Precisely for this new fashion the restaurants and bars that organize brunch in Rome have multiplied.
