In 2017, with plenty of experience in the sector, we started our blog. After years of work, we had so many stories to tell. We thought we could give something valuable back and share ourselves with the virtual community.
We are active on several social media platforms, always with the intention to share our experience as residents of Rome and tour operator.

Today, to spice things up further, we decided to start a new chapter.
A brand new column with a lot of new ideas and a specific purpose.
‘PEOPLE OF ROME’ IS BORN
We are thrilled to introduce our new column : ‘People of Rome’!
Rome is not just about the beautiful buildings or the ancient ruins. Rome is also about its people, the romani. The people of Rome are one of the most eccentric, chaotic and interesting folks you could meet anywhere in the world.
The timeless culture of their city affects their way of life deeply. It is impossible to spend some time in Rome and not to get absorbed by its old-fashioned charm. Rome has 3000 years long history and you can feel it, not just in the old cobblestone streets or in the Forum Romanum. You can feel it in the people.
Some of their habits took forever to develop and are still hard to get rid of. In Rome life isn’t passed by because people are too busy living it. Meals last forever and, they meant to be enjoyed and celebrated like a gift from god.
Their italian temper and passion is evident in every aspect of life. If you come to Italy, you’ll see people arguing on the streets about calcio or politics.
In this new column we’re going to explore the amazing lives of the ‘People of Rome’ . People that made of Rome a better place to live in, that defined the concept of romanità through their way of life and artistic contribution. Along with the most famous historical figures, there will be room for the average roman to express him or herself . The stories of ‘People of Rome’ will remind us of days spent in a Rome that will never come back. Besides nostalgia, we’ll be able to explore the present reality of Rome without filters, as told by its residents.
