After releasing a blog post on Caffè Sant’Eustachio a few days ago, we were asked by one of our readers on Linkedin.com, to find a very good non-sugared coffee in Rome.
Paris is described by Robert Doisneau not only as restless but also as sublime, in a collection of clear images that reveal this timeless city in his daily encounters with humanity. -----> Continue

Where would you possibily find a restaurant which pays as much attention to all the details of its interiors as this one? Your lucky guess might not necessarly meet the 5 rules for..... (more...)
#1 La Cucaracha
Highly coloured interiors and spicy flavors are the basics for this Mexican restaurant. This small venue is located next to Via Candia in the Prati neighborhood. The service is quite hasty but the food is worth the experience. (more...)
This small venue of Greek cusine will make you wanna plan yet another trip to the Cyclades or Ionian islands, regardless of the "current" economic turmoil. Among the appetizers you can find ketedes with zucchini and feta cheese which are delicious or have a first course of moussaka of eggplant and meat. I always recommend trying their great gyros! Small but friendly spot in Trastevere.

Via San Francesco a Ripa 103, 00153 Rome
This vietnamese restaurant opened its doors at the beginning of 2011 in the Appio area. Great variety of plates including obviously specialties of fish. Imperial rolls and rice with shrimps,ginger and soya will be instant pleasure for your palate. The service is good and staff very kind also, unfortunately a limited list of wines. For dessert I recommend the fried pumpkin decorated with chocolate.

Via Enea 56/a, 00181 Rome
This eating place is among the few sure deals in town. The ravioli soup is my favorite along with schrimp and mushrooms. The curry based chicken with bamboo and basmati rice is another specialty.The decor is essential and the staff is very kind.

Average price: 29 €
Via Topino 33, 00199 Rome
Once you walk into this restaurant you realize that this is above all Chinese places in Rome. You should try the tempura of tuna, salmon and shrimp with wasabi mayonese, just delicious. Try the curry rolls or the pork with broccoli and water chestnuts. Simple and elegant decor make it a perfect destination for a date.

The world heritage centered in the city of Rome. Events
#2 May it's the beginning of the hot season so believe it or not around Rome there are beaches. You would certainly be better off going to the best connected and closest to the center, which is Ostia. This pre-war neighborhood was built during the 1930's and its highly populated. You can take a day and split it between the beach and the ancient marvel of Ostia Antica. The port of Rome which still remains in great shape after over 2,000 years of history. Train Timetable
#3 Starting from may the Vatican Museums can be visited at night. This great opportunity allows you to avoid great lines during the hot days of the week. Take advantage and visit the Sistine chapel along with the rest of the Vatican every Friday Night of the week!!
A new Section about The beach is coming soon!

The reason we're embarking on this voyage, is the same reason that brought this website to light...the need for a suggestion. You can be sure that anybody that we've been lucky to meet and stay in touch with over the years, but doesn't live in Rome, has asked for some type of travel advice. The what, when, where, why and how of Rome, those are the questions!
Everybody deserves to know a few tips that could turn his or her trip into a lasting memory. We've come to realize this fact when for the first time while visiting a friend in Jerez de la Frontera, in Andalucia, a small city located in the south of Spain. The reason we travelled to this city was because we were invited to a wedding. That very weekend coincided with a major holiday. If not, the best holiday that we could have experience in Jerez, La feria. Better know as "feria del caballo", the fair of the horse. A Spanish tradition during which the city's park hosts this festivity. The park is crossed by two main roads, along which "casetas" are set up. They are built with wood and turned into resturants with a bar and dancefloor, that can host music bands that play flamenco.
Prior to arrival, we did not know anything about this event. After we got there, our friend introduced us to the festivity. You first begin by walking around the feria and getting in different casetas, where you start sipping Fino, a local wine, and eating. You can either sit or stand, but as soon as the band starts playing everybody starts dancing sevillanas which is a traditional dance that comes from the Castillan tradition.
We spent 13 hours straight doing this, even if we had to be up by 10 in the morning the day after for the wedding. Well, besides the headache, the chance that we had to share and experience something so radically different from Italian traditions struck me. The vibe, the smiles and passion that we were lucky to witness, thanks to my friend, are the fruits of the advice that I had received.
The purpose of our current and upcoming writings is to share priceless advice on Rome. Exhibitions, bars and restaurants; how to move around the corners of the beloved capital of Italy. We were born and raised here in Rome, and over the past few years we have had so many friends coming to us for advice. I felt the need to share my thoughts and experiences with my friends and be able to reach out those who are not. During this journey I welcome suggestions and request over worthwhile happenings in Roma...the enchanting eternal city.
Ci sentiamo presto,(Talk to you soon)
