Rome is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe. Rich with more than two and a half thousand years of history, Rome is a cultural, artistic, religious and architectural epicenter – it is simply impossible to get bored here.  Since there is so much to see and do, it is helpful to have a friend to turn to for some advice. Whether it is drinking espresso, visit a museum, eating homemade pasta or pizza at a family-owned restaurant, or finishing off the night with a healthy serving of gelato we'll help you. And as they say, “do as the Romans do”.


  1. Most stores close between 1 and 4pm for a riposo (Italian form of “siesta”). Sometimes shops and restaurants are closed on random days or times.
  2.  Most museums in Rome have free entry on every first Sunday of the month.
  3. “Coperto” is a service/cover charge for sitting in a restaurant.
  4. When visiting churches and religious sites, people must always cover their knees and shoulders. 
  5. If you do not ask for natural water at a restaurant you will most likely receive fizzy water.
