The hidden side of Rome

Street art Rome

Rome, Italy

Hello!

Do you like the photo? Surprised it’s from Rome? I totally was when seeing it.

It was my last day in Rome and I went for a private walking tour. At this point, Rome hadn’t yet charmed me. I could see why people love it as a travel destination: all the historic sites, Vatican and perfect weather. But for me, it was just okay. The historic sites were cool but there was too many of them to see everything. Vatican I loved but again too many things to see and the amount of visitors is overwhelming. Lastly, we were dying because it was so hot.

I had been trying to find Rome from all the wrong places. Surprisingly, I always forget my own tips. Find the local areas and take the hidden roads. Right next to the most popular historic sites my local guide showed me a lively neighborhood with colorful houses, murals and street art. I fell in love with this side of Rome. It was different and it was something I would like to go back for!

Have you ever experienced anything like this while traveling? Or did you have similar feelings if you have ever been in Rome?

With love,
Lost Viivi
