I have already talked to you about Rome in some previous posts (A Day in Rome and Dinner at Vicolo 88), so I reckon you’ve guessed how much I love that city and consider it as one of my homes (refer to Home is Where the Heart is). As most of you know by now, I was there this summer, just before going to Croatia. This trip made me realize I’ll never get bored of Rome and will always keep on going back and discovering new things. Meanwhile, I’ve compiled a list of 20 things about Rome, to see, do, eat and drink. I hope you enjoy it!

1) The Vespas

  1. Thanks for this comprehensive list! I’m visiting Rome for the first time in just two weeks and will definitely be toting this guide with me. Any foodie recommendations for Florence, Tuscany, and Umbria’s Perugia?

    1. Thank you! Glad you like it! 🙂 For Florence, make sure you go to Trattoria Guelfa for the best Florentine steak and in Tuscany, friends told me about Chianti with these 3 foodie places: la bottega di volpaia, panzanelle, and la perla del palazzo, all in radda in Chianti. Enjoy your trip! You’ll love it 🙂
