Rome is a city that welcomes people from all over the world. At the same time, however, it maintains a traditional and authentic feature, which is certainly one of its biggest strengths. If you want to immerse yourself completely in the customs and atmosphere of the Eternal City during your trip, then you absolutely must try these 4 Roman habits!

Coffee break

Are you out for a walk? Have you just visited a museum or are you are about to go to St. Peter’s Basilica? Are you waiting for your private Rome tour? So you must have a break with a good espresso coffee! Romans (and Italians in general) like to take a break at the bar in front of a cup of coffee, to relax a little bit before starting their activities or to  have a quick chat with someone.

Let’s celebrate with prosecco

Do you have to celebrate a special occasion or a birthday? So have a good prosecco! You only have to uncork a bottle and toast: in Italian we say “Salute!”, “Alla nostra” or “Cin cin”!

Pizza bianca and mortadella

Do you usually find yourself hungry between breakfast and lunch? Or are you too busy to think about sitting in a good Roman restaurant? Here’s how to solve this question as a Roman: at 11 am it’s the pizza and mortadella time! It’s simple but delicious food, youìll be very surprised!

Before going to sleep…

Roman people have an appointment at night, especially on weekends and after an evening spent in a club or at the stadium: they go to the “cornettaro” to have a cornetto. Oh yes, because in Rome you do not eat only for breakfast! Chocolate, cream, or jam: the flavors to choose from are many. It’s a sweet way to end the day, don’t you think?
