Ciao bella Roma!

as I´ve just spent 4 wonderful days in Rome, I thought I would share my hotel recommendations, favourite restaurants and hot spots with you.
So here we go!
WHERE TO STAY: I stayed at the Baglioni Hotel Regina in via Veneto and can absolutely recommend it. Thanks to its perfect and central location we were able to reach almost everything on foot (except for Vatican City and the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano, which were a bit too far). One of the things I love the most about walking around a new city, is that you discover so many hidden corners and can really catch the vibe of place (which you wouldn’t be able to do from a taxi or the underground).
Our room was located on the third floor, with two beautiful and romantic little balconies overlooking via Veneto, that were perfect to enjoy breakfast and room service. In the evenings we were so tired from all the walking (usually 16km per day!!), that we always chose to stay in and relax at the hotel spa.
PLACES TO VISIT: Rome is a city full of history, beautiful architecture and breathtaking art and it would take at least 2 weeks to see all of it! But, if you’re planning a short visit like us, here’s a short must-see list.
– Fontana di Trevi
– Piazza di Spagna
– Piazza Navona
– Fori romani
– Basilica di San Pietro, Cappella Sistina, Musei Vaticani
– Parco di villa Borghese
– Terrazza del Pincio
– Piazza del Popolo
– Campo dei Fiori
– Altare della Patria
WHERE TO SHOP: This is easy. You´ll find all the most exclusive shops in the area around Piazza di Spagna, via dei Condotti, via del Babuino, via Borgognona, via Frattina. If you like concept stores, try Gente and La Rinascente.
WHERE TO EAT: Obviously, Italian food is the best in the world! But you should still be careful and avoid the tourist traps in Rome. So here are a few lovely restaurants that my Roman friend Giulia recommended 🙂
– Le Jardin, Hotel de Russie for Sunday brunch and aperitivo
– Tartufi and Friends. This is perfect if, like me, you love truffles! Even their desserts are truffle-based!!
– Baffetto, my friend Giulia swears on their pizza! It’s supposed to be the best one in Rome.
– Osteria da Fortunata. Go to Campo dei Fiori for a morning walk and then enjoy a delicious old school Italian lunch with homemade pasta there.
– Da Giovanni and Giolitti serve the best ice cream.
If you have any more questions please feel free to ask 🙂
On a side note: German law requires me to mark this post as an advertising, as hotels, restaurants and shops are named, but I have no collaboration with any of these places and the whole trip was paid for by myself.
Lots of love,
