Ciao! I’m a photographer and designer who works out of Rome. My studio being in the historic center, near the Trevi Fountain, I deal a lot with businesses in the area. So I trust I’ll be able to give you some valuable advice on cool places where to eat, shop and visit. I wouldn’t send you where I wouldn’t go myself! I want visitors to find Rome as magical as I do. And I normally succeed. Wishing you a fun trip!

Rome for couples. Beginning from your suite at the Exedra, the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, and Rome's other world famous wonders makes the most sense on day one. Shopping, lunch out, and sightseeing complete, the newly married couple will need susitance, so the gourmet culinary wonders of L'Olimpo, not to mention the view from there, make a great ending for day one.
