I will continue with the next holiday post, this time from Rome. Except of Paris, Sweden and Moscow, Rome is another place that I have always wanted to visit. Thanks to my aunt who lives in this city for a couple of years already, my dream came true many times.
Our mornings have always started on the terrace with typical cappuccino and cornetto (croissant with filling) and our days ended in the same way, but cappuccino was replaced by Aperol ☺ Each visit of Rome is connected with sightseeing as well as always changing atmosphere of the city, that we have never got tired of. If you would like to take a break from exploration of its historical sights, do not miss Via del Corso– the street in the historic centre, which is a paradise for shopaholics. You can find there designer stores but also popular stores like H&M, Tally Weijl or Piazza Italia. If you are shopping maniac like me and you are in Italy in early July, you are in luck, because of the the biggest sales, that begin just at that time. I have to tell you that I have never seen such a clearence sale in Slovakia.
Italians are very sociable and friendly. Althought they start and end their workday later than we are used to, typical siesta can´t be missed as well as the time with friends after work. Terraces in narrow streets offer a unique way for you to fully enjoy the atmosphere of the Italian dolce vita. Hovewer, it had a hard time to „survive“ endless italian dinners-starting with a snack, from which I was already full, followed by the first course and second course, dessert or ice cream, or both. Everything is finished with fruit and coffee. I don’t know how Italian women can do so and still remain fashion icons.
Have a nice day and don’t forget : Tutte le strade portano a Roma
