Where I always return

The reason of my last trip in Rome was an opera production. Sofia Coppola directed “La Traviata” for the recently renovated Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, while all costumes where signed by Valentino. Once again we stayed at Hotel Quirinale (impossible to forget its garden from my last trip there), which is so conveniently located next to the Opera house. Had the best carbonara at Roscioli. Did some serious shopping. Ate tons of ice cream. Walked around for hours. Enjoyed an aperitivo at Hotel de Russie. Always a pleasure to be a tourist in Rome.

Sharing a moment, an experience, a day, a life with the ones you love is the meaning of living in this world we know. The greatest joy that reaches for a couple of seconds the feeling of crystal clear happiness. Two closest friends of mine got married last weekend in Rome, where they met once upon a time, studied and left a piece of their heart there when they left. No wedding ceremony in the world can outreach the real meaning of it all: the kind of love that has been here all this time to stay and was celebrated the way it deserved to.

Highlights: The ultra chic handmade wedding gown, the groom’s sur mesure trois piece, the 6th century orthodox church San Teodoro, the off white peonies, the after wedding haute cuisine lunch at Convivio Troiani carrying a Michelin star, the Semifreddo di Ricotta Romana with cialda di frolla, the warm ingenuous smiles everywhere around, the oceans of love, the unpretentious ceremony, the coolest couple I know.

Moments in Rome

I spent the last five days in Rome living La Dolce Vita, due to a very special occasion. The wedding of my dearest friends Cici and Andreas. A four-day of unforgettable moment sharing with the ones I love. Here is a photo calendar of my trip, from the magnificent garden of Hotel Quirinale to the food experience in Rome.

Highlights: The gigantic tree in the garden of Quirinale, the live jazz at Etabli vineria, the welcome cocktail party at Salotto 42 (ranked Νο.2  in the best 100 bars by Worldsbestbars.com), the raw seafood at Baccano, the day trip at village Ariccia, the homemade tiramisu at Casa & Bottega, Rome in full bloom, Cici in her green dress looking happier than ever.
