Roma ti amo
Hello! Buongiorno! I’m back from from my 3 nights 4 days trip to Rome and it’s all I talk about. I enjoyed it so much that at times having to stop to capture the moment got in the way. I can’t believe it’s just 2 hours away from London. Being in Rome gave me the chance to reflect on how I use my time. I thought of countless times I had wasted 2 whole hours, lazing about, on the phone, trying new hairstyles just doing mindless things. All that time i could’ve been on my way to Rome. Lol.
Sounds like a bit of an exaggeration but I thought about taking the steps towards making the right choices in my life so I can use my time well. (will be doing a post on that) Nonetheless you would be right in saying I’ve become a little obsessed with Rome. Everything from the cobbled narrow streets, the people, the weather, and yes, the food. The food was so good that each time I planned on taking photographs of it I would remember when my plate was finished. I looked through all my photos and to my amazement I did not have any photo evidence of the food. I always thought Paris was my favourite city in Europe, but Rome, Roma has opened up a whole new world a new fantastic point of view, no one to tell us no…errm oops yes I can’t wait to go back to Italy to explore some more. Please find my recommendations below on where to stay, eat and shop.
Tiberino (neo – traditional Roman food),
Ginger (vegetarian), Pinsere,
Ciao Checca (slow fast food)
Ai Tre Scalini (tapas/wine bar)
La Quercia (neo – traditional Roman food)
Bir N Fud – (Bar/ restaurant) (the name of this place had me in stitches)
These are the few places we ate at; my best advice is to ask locals and avoid the tourist areas with deals.
I’m not a coffee drinker however I have now developed a habit..oops
It’s hard to get a bad coffee in Rome, I recommend the iced espresso, hmmmm delicious.
Rome is full of incredible historical monuments (several of which are included in this post ) but beyond those, wandering was my favourite thing to do; the Jewish quarter is was very pretty.
Airbnb – Giulia’s Nest situated in the heart of Rome (Trastevere) walking distance to most of the historical monuments. A cute 2 bed flat, the perfect little flat for a long weekend.
