Since my boyfriend lives outside of Rome, I come here 4/5 times a year so that he doesn’t always have to come up north since he is studying there and I work up north in Italy.
As I’ve been through most of the sights to see now it’s more about exploring the city itself and not just the landmarks.
There are a couple of things we always have to do when we go there…
Lunch at La Montecarlo- very Italian ‘mom and pop’ place, don’t expect white linen tablecloths, do expect good food!
A stroll around the Spanish steps, always crowded but still:
And this time around walking around in Campo dei fiori:
In the evening we went to Trastevere to eat and drink, and that place is like not being in Rome. You hear more English than Italian and the pubs/bars are more like Berlin or another city- really cool vibe there, super unpretentious.
Now I am back to the rainy and cold north, back to work again;)
