Regoli Pasticceria

Pastry shop
Via dello Statuto, 60, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
Regoli Pasticceria

"Walk to Regoli, passing by the Fori Imperiali and the Colle Oppio, do it early in the morning so you can kind of enjoy it when there's no one. Go to Regoli, which is my absolute favorite bakery in Italy. People love it for maritozzi but to be honest, I go there for their crostatine with wild strawberries."

Hotel Locarno

"I would do Hotel Locarno, both for staying and for aperitivo time. I like their courtyard more than their terrace. It's just a vibe."

Palazzo Doria Pamphili

Historical landmark
Via del Corso, 305, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
Palazzo Doria Pamphili

"I love Palazzo Doria Pamphilj which is one of the most important private museums in Rome. The galleria it's really cool because it's very unexpected. It's on Via del Corso and if you don't look for it, you're gonna miss it."

Testaccio

Neighbourhood
Rione XX Testaccio
Testaccio

"I really like to escape to Testaccio. It's a great neighborhood, and it still feels extremely local. It's great for food, and I usually like to get there by walking through Aventino, another great neighborhood."

Via Appia Antica

Ancient roman road
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome Capital, Italy
Via Appia Antica

"It's kind of nice to escape Rome and get some green. I love going for a bike ride through Via Appia  Antica which was the ancient road that connected Rome to the first towns around it and I think it went all the way to Brindisi, to Puglia but now some parts are a park and it's beautiful, it's a great bike ride and you almost feel like you had a day far away from the chaos of Rome but it's right there."
