Roma combines the picturesque and the all the historical into one perfect package. The city over flows with tourists so be prepared. Rome is nevertheless magical- the ruins, beautiful buildings and a certain dolce vita make it forever a place I love.
Where to go in Rome:
Delfina Delletrez: Trained at Chanel- born a Fendi- Delfina Delletrez magical jewelry is playful, unique, and worth a visit. Her only boutique is in Rome and it is a little house of curiosity.
Sartoria Ripense: For the gentleman in your life, Andrea Luparelli’s bespoke tailor shop is everything you dream of and makes anything you could ever need (For men only- I asked about women and much to my sorrow a very emphatic “NO” was the response.) This is not mass marketed over produced clothing. Everything is designed per your request. AMAZING. Mr. Luparelli is beyond stylish and it is hard not to just want to buy the clothes off his back. The Italian tailors sew everything by hand down stairs and well its perfect. Sophia Coppola strolled in while we were finishing up our order- enough said.
Monti- My new favorite neighborhood- Great for shopping, Eating, and hanging out.
Tazza D’Oro– After taking in the Pantheon, head over to order the granita con panna (ice coffe slush with whipped cream). It really is incredible.
Caffé Propoganda– This amazing little café is trendy, delicious, and close to the coloseum. It is the perfect place for lunch, dinner, or drinks.
Trattoria da Caesare– The traditional Roman tratorria with to die for appitizers, pastas that are amazing, and a terrific wine list to boot! Make sure to make reservations- they are not so keen on walk ins!
Rome at night- Rome is better at night, so get out of you hotel and take a passigiata and admire the culture, the people, and the moon!
