What to say? I had the opportunity to live in Rome for more than 5 years, and always loved it. Now that I went back to Rome, just for 4 days and for business, I chose to book an apartment (I was with my family), in via Cavour, and discovered how beautiful this area is. We had the view of the Colosseum right out of our gate. Of course the option of booking a hotel had been considered, but I wasn't very keen on the prices and also I have children, and needed to be comfortable with them, something that in a hotel is almost impossible! And I must say that was quite happy with my choice.
We really enjoyed the Colosseum and its sorrounding, but most of all we enjoyed the walks behind the Colosseum, parallel to I Fori Imperiali, going through all those tiny, winding roads between all these antique buildings, by passing bars, tabaccherie, small shops, stopping every now and then in front of an interesting window, a gelateria or a pizza a taglio. That is something that only Rome has! So, my advice is: don't just go for the normal streets that everyone follows. Try and take the small mysterious ones and explore!
Did you enjoy My Special Rome and have you been on a holiday in Rome, Italy?
