A WEEKEND IN ROME

Watch the video

ROME, YOU ARE ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL

Look around, seek out the unusual.

Ah, Rome! When you see it you bow to the beauty of this old lady, who has the grace of a goddess. A great city like this should not just be looked at, it should be experienced. And maybe in a different and unusual way from what we see every day.

FRIDAY

Behind the Coliseum

Er Colosseo: it steals your gaze and envelops you. But have you ever wondered what's behind it? We toured Rione Monti, historical and eclectic in equal measure.

Pacciasass

Covered ankles, cherish the informal: jeans and a suede jacket.

Bergamìn

Suede leather, stitching on the toe, jeans and warm colours.

A walk around the alleys: the town is beautiful at dusk.
We like this relaxed style.

Cartee

Velvet trousers, shawl collar cardigan: the bohemian derby.

SATURDAY

Follow the sanpietrini

From Via Giulia, we follow the sanpietrini (typically Roman setts) and easily end up at the foot of Portico d'Ottavia, in the Jewish ghetto. We get lost among the old shops in the area.

Facchin

A white T-shirt and a blue cloth jacket: para sole, comfortable and relaxed.

Our stomachs start mumbling, so we go to the trattoria: maybe our manners are a bit ravenous, but this Amatriciana upsets our senses...

Crappa

Leather sole, jeans, a t-shirt and a woollen coat. Relaxed style, with elegance

Cycling along the Tiber, where you can observe the city from a different perspective: at the foot of the most historic bridges, on the Tiber Island.

Crappa

Shiny-looking elegance: trousers in herringbone wool, a t-shirt and a vintage raincoat.

SUNDAY

The Appian Way

The queen of all roads runs through the Roman countryside, (almost) as perfect as in her youth: we drive along the Appian Way in an old Fiat 500; along the road we pass monuments that have seen the ancient world.

Cartee

It follows the shape of your foot. A denim shirt and a vintage jacket.

Facchin

Stitching on the toe, comfortable under double pleated wool-and-cashmere trousers.

We are inspired by the broad spaces of the park, framed by the ancient aqueducts of 312 B.C. The body takes over, the mind lets go.

Bergamìn

As informal as it is memorable: brass hooks, a t-shirt and a suede jacket.

Pacciasass

Suede jeans and jacket, covered and laced ankle: informal style.

INSPIRING PLACES

The beauty of the past

Too far to remember, too beautiful to forget once we've explored it.

WHERE WE WENT

Away from traffic

In the Monti district, among the up-and-down staircases and descents, among archaeology, churches and little shops, we stopped in the garden of the baroque Villa Aldobrandini, an oasis far from the city concert.

WHERE WE WENT

Full of history

Via Giulia was designed by Pope Julius II della Rovere with the architect Donato Bramante in 1508. It was the "via recta" (straight street), the longest and straightest street in Rome. From here it is easy to get lost in the Jewish ghetto, one of the oldest in the world.

WHERE WE WENT

A homely cuisine, since 1928

We couldn't resist the call of Roman tradition: at the trattoria "Al Pompiere" we tasted an amatriciana and learned how to clean artichokes (a bizarre request, we are aware).

WHERE WE WENT

Follow the Tiber

Along the avenues that run along the river, surrounded by walls (not from Roman times, but from the late nineteenth century), we look closely at the water moving and chasing it on our bicycles.

WHERE WE WENT

Ancient aqueducts

At the gates of Cinecittà there were 6 of the 11 aqueducts that supplied Rome from 312 B.C. onwards; in the face of such grandeur, we savoured the innovative spirit of this ancient people.
