Rome, the eternal city! Who does not dream to spend a romantic week in Rome? The city where everything surprises you, wonders you and fascinates you. We just came back from 5 magical days in Rome and I can’t wait to share with you all the places we tried!

Special note: We met a fantastic guide that is based in Rome and explains Bernini like no one else! Do not hesitate to contact her to organize your Rome holidays  Georgia Darell (Even though this sounds like an infomercial, it is not  hahahah we met her during our visit to Villa Borguese and fell in love with her energy and great passion about Bernini and everything else really, so this is really pure delightful and from the heart recommendation, like everything on the blog!)
