3 non-touristy things to do in Rome

There are a lot of things to do in Rome. Places such as the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the Fori Imperiali must be visited, even if they are “touristic” places. But there are other places in the Eternal City to discover, even if they normally remain outside the tourist tours, or typical Roman customs to be adopted. Even just for a few days!

The nightlife of Ponte Milvio

A bridge with a great view, which became famous for the padlocks that young couples used to leave here as a proof of their everlasting love. Surrounded by restaurants, bars and pubs that are able to satisfy every taste and need, Ponte Milvio is a perfect place to live after sunset, to enjoy romantic moments followed by an aperitif or a dinner. A different point of view, but always beautiful and even trendy, on the Eternal City.

A walk in San Lorenzo neighbourhood

It is the ‘student area’ par excellence, where university students and very young boys use to spend thier days and nights. There are many places to choose from for a pizza or a cocktail. San Lorenzo maybe doesn’t have that charm of other more known and elegant areas of the city, but it is still another face left out by the classic guides about Rome. For a bohemian evening out of the box.

Discovering Porta Portese

Porta Portese is probably the most famous market in the city. It’s a historic one, where you can buy everything from clothing to antiques, products and accessories for your home to vinyls and various objects. It is held every Sunday in the Trastevere area. It is a symbol of a Rome that perhaps no longer exists but that does not forget its traditions.

Majestic, ancient, contemporary, happy and traditional: Rome really has many, wonderful faces. Each of them makes it more and more unique.
