Good To Know

1. Rome wasn't build in a day. Rome has a long long history and is rich of meaningful events. You can try to get the most of it walking through its narrow street, seating on the Spanish Steps or enjoying the picturesque view from the Pincian Hill.

2. To really enjoy Rome you have to relax, breath and enjoy the dolce vita to feel like a Roman. Romans love hav-ing coffee break, relaxed walkings on Sunday morning, laughing and eating out with with friends and relatives in some of the typical Italian trattorias.

3. The eternal city is a vibrant, amazing, colorful and sparkling open museum. A pearless journey back to the past for your eyes.

Choose one of the many pizzerias and restau-rants, have a dinner and then relax, drinking a beer in the university district called San Lorenzo.
