The latest installment of my YouTube series “Katie Parla’s Rome” visits the ancient cattle market, the banks of the Tiber River and the Circus Maximus. Join me for a stroll through Rome’s ancient food spaces for a peek at the city’s archeology viewed through a culinary lens. If you’re up for more than a bit of armchair traveling, we can visit these and other ancient food destinations together on my tour “Food & Archeology: Trade, Traffic and Enterprise From Antiquity to Today”. More details on my tours page.

  • Rome is my absolute favorite city in the world and your videos totally bring it to life for me. Thank you! Even if I can’t be there, I can experience it again through you. I’ve learned so much about this glorious city from you. I had no idea that area was the cattle market. I love the idea of imagining it there and a port at the banks of the Tiber. The history in Rome is so incredible.
