Xmas card from Rome


 

 


...The Christmas tree in front of Piazza Venezia and the market at Piazza Navona...I didn't have much time to snap the decorations before I left Rome, but at least I got a few... You know Christmas = Stress. Such a shame as I would have loved to appreciate it all to the fullest, but being busy it's good too, in a way. I guess mental peace will be my mantra in 2013 after a stressful Autumn. At least now I'm de-stressing at home <3 hoping I'll blog more in the New year. Cheers to new inspiration ;) Anyways, Happy holidays and all the best for the New year!!!
 
 ***Merry Xmas from the Eternal City***
 
Buon natale dalla città eterna

Monti






One of my favorite neighborhood in Rome; Monti is just off Via Nazionale and stretches to the Colosseum. You can reach the area with the Metro B - Cavour; and you will find yourself at Piazza Suburra, an ancient meeting place. Here you'll find cool shops, markets (the Monti market is held here), cafés and restaurants. An absolute must. Stop by Piazza Madonna dei Monti and have lunch at the Bottega del Caffé in the piazza. At night visit Ai Tre Scalini, a lovely winebar and Casa Clementina for lovely cocktails. Have a nice week-end! XXX

Antica Enoteca


 


 

I love this place, near the Spanish steps / Piazza di Spagna. It's such a cozy winery and restaurant. I prefer this place in the fall/winter as it has a lovely atmosphere and it's beautifully decorated in my opinion. In fact it's name translated is "Ancient winery" and that's the feeling it wants to give with it's antique look and "frescoes" mural paintings. Recommended  if you want to have lunch/dinner or just a piece of cake (yummy) & coffee, or a glass of red when it's cold outside.

Madonna on the corner









 There's a Madonna 'Holy Mary' on every corner in the center of Rome. 
You can also come over different variations of the same theme, here and there. Love how they are placed there to watch out for the people of the city. Also a very decorative element in the eternally gorgeous city.

After the rain...





 It's been a really heavy downpour in Rome over the last couple of days. But then suddenly it stops for a few minutes - and you get to enjoy blue sky and the sun shining on roman buildings - making them light up, as if they were on fire <3 L.O.V.E it! Looks like it's going to clear up this week-end though. In the meantime I'm going to stay inside whilst listening to the rain and thunder, it can actually be quite cozy:) 
Enjoy your evening XXX

Bar Del Fico








A place you don't want to miss in Rome. Whether it's for a coffee in the morning or a drink at night, this is the place to be, and be seen. Such a relaxed atmosphere here during the day, just behind Piazza Navona. At night it can become pretty crowdy though ... and with pretty, I mean crowded. Maybe stop by earlier for an Aperitivo, so you can enjoy the place and maybe have a seat whilst sipping on some wine. Pssst! They also have a really cool restaurant next door. Very popular too, so make sure to reserve a table, just in case.

Random-Rome






I have a loads of pictures on my computer, that I absolutely have to
 upload asap. I came across these and thought I should do a post with some of my favorite car/motorbike snaps lately. I personally love the colors both on the walls of the buildings that create the perfect backdrop, as well as the colors of the 500's witch according to me are the perfect Authum colors <3 L.O.V.E

"Let's go outside to look at the stars once again."






 

In need for a little break from the hectic city life in Rome? When your stuck in traffic by Termini - The central station, I recommend you stop by the baths of Diocletian behind the 'Santa Maria degli Angeli' church in piazza Repubblica. It's a branch of Museo nazionale Romano - The National Museum of Rome - a set of museums split among various branches across the city. It's base was established in the 16th century cloister built by Michelangelo. The Courtyard is a hidden gem; a quiet oasis in the midst of the city.

Rainy Rome


So the Autumn // winter has arrived in Rome. It became so much colder over night. Temperatures dropped from almost 30 degrees Celsius to under 20 like that* it might not sound that bad, but with the humidity, it's really nippy outside. And yesterday it was so rainy and dark outside, it reminded me so much of my hometown Bergen in Norway, known for being rainy! I snapped this pic with my phone (Instagram @myromanstyle) walking over the ponte sisto bridge on my way home. Witch made this dodgy day look oh so pretty! My umbrella def does the trick;)

Caffè Propaganda






 




This Café is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

Just everything I've been wanting and more here in Rome.
A lovely place in the shadows of the Colosseum... With a touch of Paris-chic and a feeling of entering a different era. You can stop by for an afternoon cuppa - of tea;) accompanied with delicious macaroons of your choice. Or come by later and for a drink or 2...and If you like you can dine her too. A fabulous place. A must see. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!
