There is something magical that happens when one lands in this great eternal city. They say all roads lead to Rome and to that I must agree. Whoever said it had a point. Rome, in its essence, is a city that has a lot to offer. It’s the city of love, culture, food, shopping and traces of Renaissance and history. Its people that are lively, proud and warming.
In a society that cherishes beauty and style as the quintessence of life, women can get carried away. With all the glossy magazines, social media and television advertising, it’s hard not to see the latest anti-wrinkle creams, the ‘IT’ bag that a Kardashian is holding, the newest stilettos for this season, jewellery to match, scented candles, perfume…need I go on.
The two pleasures imbedded in Italian culture and way of life, especially for women: fashion-shopping and having a coffee. I must say I know few women who don’t enjoy both. It’s an irresistible combination, an expression of pleasure and a way of being.
