Destination: ROME


Buongiorno, we are exploring Italy’s capital city, Rome with @lissygraham_ and her daughters Mitty & Soph. Brimming with ancient history, from the Colosseum to the port of Ostia Antica to the majestic Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel - there is something to see around every corner. But Rome doesn’t just offer incredible art, history, architecture and beauty, the pasta & gelato is what's won our hearts over! We were lucky enough to join these beautiful tour guides for a day exploring the ‘Eternal City’.

“I read this quote from Italian actor Alberto Sordi and it has always really resonated with me, especially now that I’m here. Everywhere you turn a little piece of history awaits you from the bustling Colosseum to the Italian designers like Valentino & Prada.”

Where To Stay: Hotel Maalot

Auguste stayed at this charming boutique hotel, right by the Trevi Fountain. Each room is individually designed and outfitted with modern art and flea market finds.

Where To Eat:

“Good food and conversation are the backbone of Rome. From a beautiful relaxed coffee at the Bulgari Hotel to Trieste Pizza in Monti. Here are a few of my favourites.”

Babette: Via Margutta, 1d (Piazza del Popolo) tel. 06 321 1559

Pizzeria La Montecarlo, Vicolo Savelli, 13 tel. 06 686 1877 (PIAZZA NAVONA)

The Best Gelato In Town:

“Un cono con due gusti, per favore!”

LA ROMANA Via Cola di Rienzo n 2 (close to the Vatican) 

FATA MORGANA Via Laurina 10 (close to Via del Babuino & Piazza del)

Best Vintage: 

“Italy is the home of understated glamour and luxury, from Prada to Fendi to the most beautiful leather artisans on every corner. Vintage shopping is big in Rome & I found so many little laneway boutiques selling vintage treasures.”

Head to Porta Portese for the Sunday markets

What To Wear:

“I’ve found fashion here to be relaxed but modern. My Auguste dresses were perfect to glide through the crowds & then dress up with a little kitten heel for dinner. Holidays are all about building a small capsule wardrobe that I know I’ll wear again and again, and Mitty, Soph & I share whatever we bring, so it’s lovely seeing my wardrobe reimagined in their eyes.”
