Welcome to la mia vita roma...
As an ex-pat with over two years of experience living and working in Rome, there are certain things I want to share with anyone who's thinking about coming to Italy:
1. The magic of Italy is in its variety. You'll have an entirely different experience visiting the South vs. the North, or the coast vs. the mountains. If you're in Rome (or whichever city for that matter) try to do, eat and be Roman. As they say, when in Rome...
2. Pizza is available in many forms but a thin-crust Roman margherita will never let you down.
3. If you can get past Rome's famous monuments and its rough-around-the-edges appearance, there's a whole world waiting for you to explore.
