When in Rome

As much as I love France, sometimes it's nice to trade in the joie de vivre for a little taste of Italy's dolce vita. Only a 2-hour flight from Paris, Rome is close enough for a long weekend, but far enough away to really feel like you're on vacation.

Planning a trip to the Eternal City? Check out a few of my favorite places below.

Where to stay

Owned and operated by Italian couple Gian and Felicia Domenico, Welcome to Roma is a stylish apartment located within walking distance of the Vatican. In a mainly residential area, just a few minutes away from the Cipro metro station, this is where you'll get the real Rome experience. Many amenties are provided, including toiletries, towels, free Wi-Fi, snacks and an amazing coffee maker to whip up your morning espresso or cappuccino.
