Italian artist, illustrator, and designer Alice Pasquini draws from the vibrant life in Rome to create.

Historic Centre of Rome

Historical landmark
Piazza in Campo Marzio, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
Historic Centre of Rome

"The Historic Center is so big and amazing. It has the Colosseum, [Basilica] Saint Peter, and the [Trevi] Fountain. But Rome is not only the Historic Center; there are a lot of different districts that are like little towns where you can see exciting things and street art."

Trastevere

Neighbourhood
Trastevere, Rome, Metropolitan City
Trastevere

"Trastevere is the district next to the center. It's on the other side of the river Tiber and once was the Roman heart. There are still some restaurants that work the old-fashioned way where you can't get a reservation, you sit with random people at the table, and they take your order without writing anything."

Pigneto

Neighbourhood
Pigneto, Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome
Pigneto

"Pigneto is where people working in the train stations used to live. There are lots of little villas, and now it's very young and full of bars, a place where you can have brunch or beers. There are also a lot of great places for gelato in Pigneto, such as Fattori."

Babington's Tea Room

Tea house
Piazza di Spagna, 23, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
Babington's Tea Room

"If you want something different, have a British brunch next to the Spanish Stairs in the center of Rome. This very historical English place was made for English ladies — the first Tea Room in Italy. It's beautiful, and you can enjoy brunch, beautiful cakes and tea."

Antico Forno Roscioli

Bakery
Via dei Chiavari, 34, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
Antico Forno Roscioli

"The best things about Rome are eating around and walking, so it's worth visiting any bakery; there are many bakeries next to Campo de Fiori. [Antico Forno] Roscioli is a magic one. Ask for a slice of pizza — that's very Roman."
