Do you think that neighborhoods can't talk? I always thought they could!

If you are planning a trip in Rome for the upcoming summer and perhaps you have already booked some cultural tours, you know what to do during the day. Then the question will be...what should I spend my nights there?
So, obviously there is one way to fill your time: having an aperitivo ( popular way to have booze with friends) or go to dinner. Apart from this you
It's pretty a sure thing, when someone is planning a trip to the Eternal City, Culture and Food are the key words!
Nobody will miss a walking tour alonside the most popular sites such as Colosseum or Vatican Museums&Sistine Chapel. Another must is having an Italian dinner in a cozy tavern perhaps in Trastevere!

What to do with children in Rome? Many parents ask theirselves this question as soon as they land in the Eternal City.

THE WEEKEND HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!
Raise your hand if you don't enjoy a well- deserved relaxing time on Saturdays and Sundays, abandoning the weekday frenzy!

Around Christmas everyone behaves, around Christmas time everyone is good!
Since we have been little our parents used to warn us to better behave because Santa Claus knew everything, knew if we slept, if we ate, if we have been good or bad and all this could scare us and compromise our fantastic gift!
