Rome from an EforElegance Angle… BEFORELEGANCE

It’s countless spots that one can bring up when talking about Rome, however there are some that stand out for their history, finesse and luxury services. I have visited the eternal city many times and you will always find me enjoying my coffee or aperitivo or la dolce vita in general in these places..

  • Caffè Greco or Antico Caffè Greco

No. 86 Via Condotti – Across the historic BVLGARI boutique and a breath away from Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps)…

The Caffè Greco or Antico Caffè Greco incarnates history and the poetic, elegant times of the 19th and 20th centuries which you relive once you step into the elegantly decorated “sale”…

Time machine: Crowded ‘OMNIBUS’ room at Caffè Greco in 1910

A point of reference for tourists today, in the past it was the meeting spot for great artists, poets, writers from different countries…

All came in thirsty for inspiration…sipped a caffe corretto and engaged in fruitful conversations that led to novels, pamphlets, songs, poems. Constant habitués were Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Henrik Ibsen, Hans Christian Andersen, and John Keats, Bizet, Wagner and King Ludwig of Bavaria.

Beyond anything, elegant living is defined by fine taste, sight and smell that electrifies the senses and when you enter the Caffè the intensity of the fresh coffee aroma makes your mind race…

All time favourite: Hot chocolate con panna (with whipped cream) if you visit Rome in the winter or a summer Aperitif before dinner.. I always remember family stories of my father sipping espresso and ‘casually’ bumping into Gianni Bulgari right across the street..When I visited the Caffè, a second time, having walked all around the Old City of Rome in a hot March day, I found myself wandering again in Via Condotti shopping and as a break, I popped in craving for a creamy cappuccino con panna…

  • Hotel De Russie

Or as I like to call it a beautiful oasis in much crowded constantly warm city…It is my personal favorite for a classy light, lunch or aperitivo in the gardens in the early evenings. It’s charm lies not only on the imposing architecture reminding you of classic old Rome..but also on the impeccable service and attention to detail..

  • Spa Day at Hotel Sina Bernini, Bristol

A fantastic historic hotel that posits at the center of Piazza Barberini with soothing, magnificent spa services. I have stayed there a couple of times and every time I pay a visit to the spa to spend time in the Jacuzzi, have a combination of facials and massages. Plus, it is in a very key neighborhood next to prestigious old embassy buildings and close to very interesting culinary gems like Ristorante Tullio..oh..the fantastic creamy burata salad was everything..
