For many visitors, this was the highlight of their trip to Rome. And what better souvenir to take home than a collection of Italian recipes and cooking techniques you can use when you return from vacation? During the five-hour class, you'll learn how to make authentic Italian dishes with a local Roman chef, Andrea Consoli, as your guide.

Past visitors raved about their experience, saying chef Consoli was patient, engaging and a great communicator. Others were pleased that he was able to accommodate different diets and skill sets. The use of fresh ingredients was another highlight for travelers. Some suggested splurging on the wine pairing for the full experience.

All classes, which are held in Trastevere, start at 10 a.m. and last five hours, including the meal. Classes are offered Monday through Saturday and include a maximum of 12 guests. The reservation-only classes cost 75 euros per person (or about $88) and include an appetizer, fresh pasta, a second course and dessert. Visit the company's website to book and to find out more information.

#1 Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi)

A must-see on many travelers' itineraries, the Trevi Fountain is situated amongst a high concentration of hotels, shopping and nightlife. Finished in the mid-1700s, the Trevi is a powerful example of a baroque design with a distinctly mythological character. The god of the sea, Oceanus, emerges from the pool, flanked by his trusty Tritons. The fountain underwent an extensive, mutlimillion euro restoration and reopened in its full splendor in November 2015.

According to Roman lore, throwing one, two or three coins into the Trevi, with your right hand over your left shoulder ensures you'll return to Rome; you'll fall in love with an attractive Roman; and you'll marry that same Roman.
