How Rome and Italy Feel, June 20

Hey, how are you? It’s been quite a while since my last MOTW update. I’m coming back this weekend, with some of the best and meaningful moments of Rome and Italy. I have this idea to create a simple visual diary, to show you my Rome life and some awesome hidden places in Italy we’ve visited recently. Enjoy my photo diary of Rome and Italy for June, and I hope they can show you exactly, how Rome and Italy feel.

When we were in Phase II, which is somewhere between lockdown and post-lockdown. We were able to walk in the city with masks and social distance. I took my long walk in the “deserted” Rome center. The “Roma Centro Storico” really impressed in this new way.

 

Just with a mask and some sanitizer, but without tourists, I had to admit, the walk in the city is a truly enjoyable thing now. Plus, the beloved Italian summer has landed in Rome. It just makes everything more lovely.

Many squares in Rome are empty like this.
The flowers and grass are growing extra wild as the Rome city center is "abandoned" for nearly 3 months.

For most of Romans, summer weekends are the best chance to “hang out”. Hanging out isn’t limited to Trastevere or Testaccio, sometimes, it means a real weekend escape outside Rome. We went back to Montefiascone for few days. Also, we joined a wonderful afternoon with our friends in Poggio Mirteto, which is a small town outside Rome. You know, a group of Italians, a swimming pool with very cold water, a table of homemade Italian dishes and many colorful bottles (colorful means white and red wine, spirits and beer, oops and coca-cola).

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon with our friends in Poggio Mirteto. Some fluffy friends, many homemade Italian dishes, bottles of wine and beer, and a whole afternoon of chatting and enjoying the good summer weather, was all we loved the most.

Even when we spent our weekends in Rome, there are plenty of places to go to. One of my recent favorites is Villa Borghese. Just, now you can find the best summer inside that public park. Of course, stepping into the summer season, all the public parks and gardens become so beautiful and popular among the locals.

The last thing to admire is the most common things done by many tourists, but probably the least by the Romans – Sightseeing!

 

Imagining Colosseum and Trevi Fountain stand there without the crowd? That’s what we are having now! The same situation happens to the Vatican, Trastevere, and many famous churches and museums. Or, simply have a walk to Campo dei Fiori, not for the coffee or the drinks, but some irresistible flowers.

 

Every time I go out, I pass Rione Monti, or I call it, Cavour (neighborhood). It’s such a beautiful and lovely neighborhood in Rome.

I didn't mean to visit Trevi Fountain, but just passed it on a random morning. I admit that I took "thousands" of photos again. That happens every time when I pass there!

On my way to Campo dei Fiori or Piazza Navona, I always pass Torre di Lago Argentina. This is where Caesar was assassinated, and also was "home" to many street cats in Rome.

Fresh Margherite from Campo dei Fiori, is what I'm always longing for, when my vases at home are empty.

If you don't have time to take care some flowers at home, simply look up when you are around Campo dei Fiori. I mean the Piazza had its name for a reason, right? (I'm kidding)

The sunset of Rome is always magical, and when I was in Cavour, the sunset becomes more amazing.

Why I love Cavour neighborhood? Look at those young people in the little tiny square in this neighborhood.

This is not a neighborhood, but just close to my place. I captured this old man riding his bike on a random afternoon. I think I was on my way to get some "Sanpietrini" from Fassi. The point is, the bikes or scooters are becoming the new tools for the Romans to "commune" inside Rome city center. However, I'm still preserving my opinion of "risking" in Rome's crazy traffic, even it's much better now.

Recently I went to Palazzo Bonaparte for the extended exhibition of “Impressionisti segreti”. Not talking about the exhibited artworks inside, just the Palazzo itself. It is so beautiful! It is such a perfect combination of ancient Rome and Greek style, with the beautiful Baroque design. The little green balcony (if you watch it from outside the Palazzo), facing Piazza Venezia, is the most impressive and beautiful part of my visit. The only thing that can compete with it, is the fascinating story of lady Maria Letizia Ramolino, or Madame Bonaparte, who gives the name to the building in 1818.

 

So, if you are living in Rome, don’t be shine. Go visit your city and enjoy it. If you are not in Rome, hummm… let’s see, as I believe that we will all go through this hard time, and finally, the tourism will be back to Rome and Italy soon.

Palazzo Bonaparte is definitely a place to visit whatever you are living in Rome, or just visiting Rome. The building itself, is equally beautiful to the story of the lady who lived there.
