Global phenomenon Eataly is far more than just an Italy-focused supermarket: its two Rome megastores are also restaurants and cooking schools. Fill your suitcase with regional specialities or pause for a quick bite at the Piazza della Repubblica branch, but head to the Ostiense flagship for five floors of restaurants, bars and produce showcasing Italian food at its finest. Piazza della Repubblica 41, Rome and 1492 Piazzale XII Ottobre, Rome. www.eataly.net

Hidden beneath St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Necropolis is a wonderfully atmospheric 1st century AD pagan burial ground which is astonishingly well-preserved. In an esoteric corner, cordoned off from the rest of the city of the dead, stands a tomb said to contain the bones of St. Peter himself, lying directly beneath the great altar in the cathedral above. Only 250 visitors per day are permitted, so book ahead via the Vatican website at www.vatican.va. Adults €13, reductions available.
