Marigold Roma: Rome's hottest new brunch spot

Marigold Roma: Rome's hottest new brunch spot

The hype surrounding Marigold Roma has been real. Authentic, home-cooked breakfast/brunch options in Rome, a city famous for its over-priced brunch spots and stand-at-the-bar breakfasts. While there are other options for brunch and breakfast in the city, I’ve long felt the lack of a delicious and (let’s be real) aesthetically-pleasing brunch spot to hang with friends on the weekend.

The Opera in Rome: What to expect from an Italian opera

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending my first opera in Italy, La Traviata,in the center of Rome at Salone Margherita. I dressed up, grabbed my date, had dinner before and managed to stay up way past my bedtime to see this beautiful show on a warm spring night in the city. It was a magical experience and I think it’s a perfect activity to plan for any trip to Rome.
