I anticipate my winter escape all year long. It's that time in mid- to late-January when I forget about shoveling my apartment's walkway and sip margaritas on the sand instead. However, there's a point in every vacation, whether I'm away for a week or a month, that I begin to dread returning to my usual routine.

The Italian capital is an important place for world gastronomy. Eating in quality restaurants in Rome should be an imperative.
