Italians have the perfect lifestyle all figured out. So naturally, as the nation’s capital, Rome is all that and just a little bit more.

The key? Appreciation. Romans love to kick back and admire their architecture, design, beauty, company, and most of all, food.

Rome is one of the most charming destinations in the world, with ruins and architecture that date back 2,000+ years adding doses of timelessness throughout the city.

It’s difficult not to become smitten as you stroll through its haphazardly placed cobblestone streets with warmly-painted buildings, dodging the mopeds that act like they’re pedestrians.

Rome is the kind of city where you will turn a corner and see a spectacular piece of architecture that at home would be known as the fanciest building in town. However, in Rome, it’s just a part of the crowd and the locals may not have even heard of it.

The top attractions such as the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, and Piazza Navona will truly take your breath away. The overbearing tourist scene here is totally warranted.

So grab a plate of pizza and/or pasta, then a gelato, wash it all down with a glass of Prosecco, and set off to explore all that this captivating city has to offer. Stay tuned to this page as we share where to eat, where to drink, things to do, a neighbourhood guide, and the best Instagram inspiration for Rome.
