Hello Rome – my tips to explore the city! “像个罗马人一样游览罗马”

As some of you might know, I was born and raised in Rome – but I only started to see its beauty when I left it, almost 8 years ago.

也许有些人已经知道,我是罗马土著;但坦白来说,直到8年前离开罗马后,我才仔细看清楚这座美丽的城市。

Now every time I go back it’s all about being a tourist in my own city. And I enjoy this so much – I wear my sunglasses and I’m out all day, taking pictures, meeting friends, tasting cornetto & cappuccino‘s and shopping!

现在每次回去,就如初来乍到的游客一样:戴副墨镜就晃荡出去逛逛,拍拍照片,见见朋友,吃吃Cornetto,当然不能错过Cappuccino啦。

And as so many of you have been asking, I’m more than happy to share my tips about this wonderful city – I hope they can help you enjoy your trip and #livelikeaRoman!

后台有不少朋友问我作为本地人能不能给一些游览罗马的建议,我认真整理了一下自己平时会去逛的地儿,都是个人爱好,给你们做参考 #和罗马人一样生活#

(This list is an edited version of the list of my favourite places I sent to all the guests to my wedding back in 2013 – but in the Eternal City things don’t change too often!

2013年我结婚的时候,曾经给受邀参加婚礼的朋友们发过一份罗马游玩项目推荐,下面整理的这些在之前那份推荐上有一点点修改。但要知道,像罗马这样的“永恒之城”,变化即使有也不大。

I’ve picked out all the things I totally love and know you will too. So, all you have to do now is get to Rome and explore!

这些推荐项都是我自己最心水的,也希望你们看到后会喜欢。其实,要说旅行,最重要的就是走出去那一步,至于怎么走,走多远都是后话了。

The weather in Rome is always nice, so I suggest you wear comfortable shoes and explore it walking.

罗马的天气总是特别好,换上一双舒服的鞋子,慢慢在大街小巷溜达最自在不过了。

If you want to make it to a museum, I suggest the glorious Galleria Borghese – not only is the villa pretty, entry is by timed ticket, which means no elbowing and shoving – the perfectly-sized collection contains Canova and Bernini marble masterpieces – they will leave you literally speechless. It’s charming to take a stroll (or have a run – ah!) at the Borghese Gardens afterwards – Bellissimo!

博物馆:如果想去博物馆逛逛,我强烈推荐博尔盖塞Galleria Borghese 美术馆。持定时票入场可以尽情参观,定时票游览限制了入场人数,保证游览的质量。抛开Galleria Borghese美术馆自身的特点不说,意大利划时代建筑师、雕刻家Gian Lorenzo Bernini吉安·洛伦佐·贝尔尼尼的作品绝对不能错过(意大利纳沃纳广场的四河喷泉、西班牙广场大台阶下的破船喷泉,以及《阿波罗与达芙妮》都是这位大师的作品);以及Antonio Canova安东尼奥·卡诺瓦的大理石雕刻作品(代表作有《玻耳修斯》)。

Shops generally open from 10am-7.30pm, although smaller ones take an afternoon pause from 1-4pm, and some close all day Sun and on Mon mornings too.

逛街的话,罗马的商铺一般上午10点开门,下午7:30关门;小一点的商店下午1点到4点会关门休息,有些商铺周日和周一全天不开门。

All indoor restaurants and bars are non-smoking.

去外面就餐的话要注意几乎所有的室内餐馆和酒吧都是禁止吸烟的。

Drinking cappuccino after midday is very déclassé.

罗马人都热爱Cappuccino,但我们一般早上喝,过了中午是不喝的。

You will only need the following Italian phrases, just in case of emergency:

当然如果能说几句意大利语就更好了,比如下面一些经常用到的:

  • Ciao bella / bello: 你好/好极了
  • Buongiorno / buonasera: 早上好/下午好
  • Buona notte: 晚安/再见
  • Per favore / grazie / prego: 请/感谢/别客气
  • Aoh, ma che sta a fa?: What the *@!# are you doing? (very useful in traffic while waving arms Italian-style violently). 嗨,干什么呢!(说这句话的时候再像意大利人一样用力挥舞手臂就更到位了!)

 

But let’s get one thing straight, if you’re skinny now, you’ll be a hefty by the time you leave – it’s pointless to resist the call of the cucina, so my advice is: give in, give in! You can drink beet juice and eat salads for the rest of your life, but Rome is for feasting.

但有件事我得事先提醒,即使你现在身材苗条,等你离开罗马的时候也会变得更加圆润。意大利食物的美味举世皆知,要在这儿拒绝美食简直对自己惨无人道。所以,我的建议就是,吃!放开了吃。不是有句话嘛,在罗马,就要像罗马人那样享受美食。

My favourite spots are: 下面这些都是我私人最心水的店,把它们分享出去我还能订上位子吗?(挠头ing…)

Via del Leone, 4 (Centro)

Busy and charming streetside tables. Lovely. My husband Giorgio’s favourite

地址:Via del Leone, 4 (Centro)

临街的桌子总是坐满了人,但街巷的风景太美了,这儿也是我先生Giorgio的最爱。

Salita de’ Crescenzi, 4 (Pantheon)

Pasta expert. Chiara’s Pick. No need to say anything else, I guess.

地址:Salita de’ Crescenzi, 4 (Pantheon)

如果你想吃意大利Pasta,这儿是最佳选择。

Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 36 (Centro)

Pizza galore.

地址:Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 36 (Centro)

想吃意大利正宗pizza,来这儿。

Piazza S.Eustachio, 42 (Pantheon)

Some say it’s what is in the water, other credit the wood roasted beans and baristas, but only a few  dispute that their caffe’ is the best in town!

地址:Piazza S.Eustachio, 42 (Pantheon)

有人喜欢帅到爆的咖啡师,也有人喜欢木烤豆子,但所有人都爱死这儿的咖啡了。

Via dei Condotti, 86 (Spagna)

Touristy, but well worth a peek. VIP from Casanova to Liszt to George Clooney have passed by this grandy grinder. Stand at the bar for the best granita di caffe’ con panna in the entire city

地址:Via dei Condotti, 86 (Spagna)

虽然游客众多,但绝对值得一试。拥趸包括了所有的风流人物,有大名鼎鼎的Casanova,钢琴家李斯特,好莱坞明星乔治克罗尼。站在窄窄的吧台前等着那一小杯Espresso时,看着来往打扮光鲜坐在像美术馆一样的咖啡店里的各色人群,也不失一种风景。

Piazza S.Lorenzo in Lucina, 29 (Centro)

This lovely café has a charming retro gelato bar inside serving our favorite flavors in Rome. The scandalous whipped cream (panna) is only for the true devotee

地址:Piazza S.Lorenzo in Lucina, 29 (Centro)

这家可爱的咖啡馆里有一个迷人的Gelato柜台,各种口味都有,当然热量也罪恶的很,如果你是Gelato忠诚的拥趸,怎么能错过Panna口味的呢。

Via Uffici del Vicario, 40 (Pantheon)

While the gelato and pastries are divine, when it’s hot, ask the Sicilian bartender or a cold tea with granita di limone (lemon sorbet), sit alfresco and enjoy!

地址:Via Uffici del Vicario, 40 (Pantheon)

每次回去Gelato是必吃的;天气热的不像话时,别忘了跟西西里的酒保要一杯冷茶配柠檬雪葩,坐到室外去,慢慢地透心凉。

说到购物,我有几个地方每次回去都要去逛一逛。

  • Via dei Condotti – Fashion & accessories Condotti大街———时尚聚集地

This is it. The epicentre of Roman bling shopping. You (and probably fifty thousand others) are standing in Piazza di Spagna by Bernini’s iconic boat fountain, straight ahead lies the gauntlet of Condotti, where Italy’s most famous brands lie. Mandatory sunglasses, perma-tan and plenty of bling – and that’s just the guys. Portfoglios out!

Condotti大街,罗马的时尚品牌聚集地。这条不到300米的街道两旁汇集着全世界著名的时尚品牌店,街道尽头就是罗马标志性的西班牙广场,以及破船喷泉。不仅如此,仅是逛街的人群都十分养眼:统一的墨镜搭配晒的黝黑健康的皮肤,哇,天堂。

  • Trastevere – Atmosphere 古城意境

The ancient neighbourhood is ground zero for local vibe and fun for a wander either at lunch or particularly in the evening. In particular I suggest you ladies visit Di San Giacomo and gets a pair of bespoke sandals. They have a branch in via di Santa Dorotea as well.

Trastevere街区历史悠久,想感受罗马的历史和文化,这儿是最佳选择。午后或者晚上在Trastevere散步非常惬意;我特别要跟女生们说的是,逛街的时候可以顺便去Di San Giacomo看一看,那儿定制的凉鞋特别棒,我个人已经买了不知道多少双了。他们在Di Santa Dorotea大街还有一家店。

I hope you enjoy your trip, feel free to let me know where you had your favourite Cappuccino!

Enjoy – ciao belli!!
