The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Unearth Avant-Garde Art in Old-World Rome


4. Insider’s Tip

Snag one of Cristalli Di Zucchero's famous pastries early—they're often sold out by the afternoon.   

Take advantage of nighttime deals at some of Rome’s beloved bakeries—when the sun goes down, many spots throw away their remaining goods and start fresh in the morning. The bakers at the Cristalli Di Zucchero pasticceria will offer savory treats like panini and pizzas for free at closing time (8:30 p.m. daily, except Tuesday). But it’s worth coming back when they open at 7:30 a.m. to buy some of their revered Parisian-style pastries and cakes, which often sell out by midday.
