A new start can be as sweet as an ice cream or a Roman cornetto, or full of flavor like an espresso to enjoy in one of the historic bars and cafes of the city, even if using disposable cups, mugs and glasses. The city wakes up slowly and gently, and returns to its rituals, accompanied by the sound of footsteps on the cobblestones we almost forgot in the past days.
Social distancing and compliance with safety measures are still our keywords. From the beginning of May, however, some of the lockdown restrictions have started to be lifted: after the reopening of bookstores, it was the turn of bars, restaurants and ice cream shops. From 18 May, museums and libraries reopened to the public, because we now know that art and culture are also a primary good, even in times of emergency. We can breathe some fresh air or get in shape by training outdoors in the parks, villas and public gardens that make up the immense green heritage of Rome, from Villa Borghese to Villa Pamphilj, or walk on the Roman paving of the ancient Appian Way.
Through our portal and social channels, we will continue to show you Rome’s beauty and art masterpieces, whether widely or little known, helping you to discover the many outdoor itineraries combining history and nature. And, why not, by using a bicycle or on an electric scooter to promote integrated and sustainable mobility.
