Beyond the beauty and its wonderful monuments. There are some aspects of Rome that will make you fall in love with the Eternal City: not only its magnificence, but also the habits and customs of those who live there. Because Rome is always a great surprise and experiencing the city means being able to appreciate what makes it unique.
“Dear” and “darling” are very common words to greet those you know, even if you are not close friends: in a shop, at the hairdresser’s, at the bakery. If you are having a bad day, don’t worry: there is always someone who makes you smile with a joke or a nice word.
There is always something to do. An event, an exhibition, a concert, a theatre, a special evening in a club, a new restaurant to try: in Rome you do not risk getting bored. Never!
From Rome you can reach many beautiful places: it is close to the sea, the lakes and the mountains. In addition to the surroundings of the city and the many cities of Lazio, you can choose Abruzzo, Tuscany, Umbria and Campania for your trips. Florence, Milan and Bologna are easily reachable by train. You only have to decide where to go!
The weather is truly enviable. Winter is usually mild, spring is a triumph of colors and scents, autumn is a bit cooler than summer and summer is very hot, but you can go to the beach or choose one of the many pools open in the city. The sun often shines so bright and Rome with the sun is wonderful!
There are so many shops to choose from for shopping: there are deals on every corner. From the most popular brands to craft shops. And the choice also concerns food: starred restaurants, but also traditional restaurants, pubs, street food and pizzerias. Every desire can be easily satisfied.
“In Rome it seems as if there were so many things which are more wanted in the world than pictures.” George Eliot
