In Rome, understandably, the focus is more on preservation than innovation, at least what concerns the physical components of the city. It isn’t just the buildings, however, but traditions in terms of food and art are being upheld in various ways, so that it is rather difficult to find a restaurant serving nouvelle italian cuisine. This may be changing: Innovation is slowly becoming more visible, having been an undercurrent for many years.

l forum evening clouds rome A “Different” 36 Hours In RomeThe New York Times took a new approach to the “one day in Rome” genre, pointing out more quirky, new, and different places to explore, and restaurants to eat at: 36 Hours in Rome. I find it very refreshing, since for once I don’t actually know each and every suggestion, and reading the article makes me want to go out and explore.

The only suggestion I think is inadequate concerns accommodation. Listing only hotels that cost above 200 EUR a night, especially when they are “simply appointed”, just misleads people into thinking that this is the only available price range. In contrast, I know hotels and guest houses which are clean, with good, basic furnishing, that cost 100 EUR or less, depending on the season. Holiday apartments can be a good deal especially if you are travelling in a group of 3 or more persons. Read our article “What You’ve Always Wanted To Know About Holiday Rental Agencies I” to get an inside perspective of what to look for when booking accommodation in Rome.
