What city will you be talking about?
What’s the cheapest way to enjoy this city at night?
Take part in apertivo hour when you can have anything from a few light snacks with you drink to a full on buffet. Buy a drink or glass of wine, fill you plate and enjoy. Don’t be greedy however. This is not meant to be dinner. From there you can find a good people watching spot on most any piazza in the historic center and hang out all night if you like. Campo dei Fiori, Piazza della Rotunda, and anywhere around the Spanish Steps are great places to idle away an evening. Starting in May, Rome hosts a free museum night one Saturday a month.
What’s your favorite restaurant here? What’s so special about it?
So many great restaurants in Rome. I really don’t have one favorite but for great food and value in the historic center try Il Gusto. The ambiance is nice and the service is better than average, which can be a bit slow in Rome.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a warm Sunday morning in this city?
On a warm Sunday morning I like to get up early and head over to one of my favorite bars for a cappuccino before going to the morning mass at Trinita dei Monti above the Spanish Steps.
What were some of the hidden gems in that city? Why?
The Orange Garden or Parco Savello is a lovely place to get away from the crowds and noise of Rome. The air smells of citrus and there are little benches scattered about. Also on this hill the Aventino you will find the Knights of Malta Keyhole where you can view St.Peter’s Church. For some reason not that many people make the effort to visit this area.
