Rome's history and chic vibe made it my favourite city. The past has always held a certain charisma for me.
As you can see, food played a central theme throughout our time in Rome. Whether it was eating gelato three times a day, discovering what cannolis are supposed to taste like, or even finding a Brazilian-Japanese fusion restaurant, Rome has what you crave.
We spent our time in the neighbourhood of Monti--a young and chic area full of young energy and young people. If you're in Rome, I highly recommend spending time in Monti--whether you're looking for boutique shopping, vintage stores, or home accessories, Monti has you covered. It's exactly what you'd expect to find in the hip area of a city in the most stylish country in the world.
The menswear in Rome is fine-tailored. You can't flick a cigarette without hitting a guy in tassel loafers and tailored suits (or at least chinos and a sport coat).
I stopped a local on the street who was kind enough to let me take a photo of him for my site--in a double breasted navy suit, an open blue shirt, and worn brown leather loafers he perfectly exemplified menswear in all of Italy (and that's saying something--but come on, look at him).
- Rome is totally awesome. If you haven't been, you need to start planning your trip right now.
- An Italian vintage store can have some real gems.
- Never underestimate gelato. Research the top gelato in Rome and visit every one on the list. You're welcome.
