My recent visit to Rome was very successful and might have been a bit too short as I stayed there for only one night with an early flight in the morning and a late flight back the following day with EasyJet. When you do such an intense journey you end up very tired and in a way miss the whole purpose of a break, which is to relax so I would definitely recommend 72 hours in Rome! First of all I was very lucky to find a new bed and breakfast ‘Domus Valeria’ (www.domusvaleria.it) that’s located in the best location near the Spanish steps with a very friendly owner Marco Abbati. I had a beautiful double room and I was served breakfast on the roof!
When you are in a good location it just changes everything. I was also very lucky with the weather and I felt almost ‘drunk’ from the beauty of the town in terms of the history, the historical building the Vatican, the Colisseum, and the City attractions but more is the aesthetic input that represents Italy the most – everything is beautiful. From the people in the street, every man and every woman dresses chic, the fashion. We also visited some of the most beautiful hotels in Rome, I filmed in the Baglioni hotel which is just stunning. The Baglioni is on one of the most famous streets, Via Veneto 72.
I haven’t used Rome’s metro as I had a local Fabiola Miccone who took me around, and is now working on the single campaign! I used the Express train from the airport which was very useful and cheaper than taking a taxi. Saying that the tourist information was very helpful when I landed and I took a taxi for only 40 Euros to the centre of town which ended up being quite reasonable if you’ve just landed and don’t know you’re way – so if you can share it with someone it’s a good way to start your trip.
I think my joy in Rome was also because of the warmth of the Italian people, the great interview that I had on TV with Sky TV with local journalist Giada Martinucci and an interview with the Italian researcher who found the 72 in the Mona Lisa, Silvano Vinceti.
