We had been organizing a gathering of travel bloggers for some time, December 2018 to be precise; it’s never easy to agree so many heads and reconcile commitments(and travel of course)of all and yet we succeeded. We chose the warmth of May and the beauty of Rome for this gathering of travel bloggers and to sponsor this event was ITALY I LOVE YOU, a tourist consulting agency with about 30 years of experience… what more to ask for?
Tourism ex-esplanary of Italy I love you
This gathering has not only introduced us to passionate and sincere people who like us to travel but also a new frontier of tourism, experiential tourism. Already because we were lucky enough to collaborate with Italy I love you who showed us what it means to provide experience and not just a guide.
Alessandro, owner of the agency is a real travel expert: he began to travel from a very young age, always looking for that experience of LIVING a place and not visiting it.
Traveling means having experiences that contribute to personal growth and enrichment (we can only share) and it is no coincidence that this was his thesis.
Discovering Rome on an experiential tour
Knowing Rome with Italy I love you means getting on a tram and starting to look around, listen to Alessandro tell us about the historic pizzeria Vittorio on Viale Trastevere and the Romanesque verses of the poet Belli.
Everyone knows the Colosseum, but how many dwell on the stories of the Suburra or on the beauty of the engravings of the Trajan column?
Not only Rome…
and then Rome… it’s not just in Rome. The history of a civilization like this flows throughout Italy and also in much of Europe and there is no need to stray too far from the Capital, just discover ancient Ostia to rediscover its charm and power.
The site of ancient Ostia is a slice of history immersed in the green that comes alive and returns to its former splendor when a ballerina begins to hint at the steps of a typical Roman dance. A leap back in time, the return to a past of glories and ingenuity, the exciting leap of space-time that reconstructs walls, roads and columns.
I lived in Rome but maybe the right phrase would be… I lived in Rome. Although in three years I have never carried out the “pilgrimage” of the most popular places in the city I realized that I had lost something else… perhaps I have never fully read the soul of Rome, that of inns, starlings, hotels for party dinners and artists who look at the soft and golden light of its sky at sunset.
Perhaps theexperience that Alessandro was talking about and that aims to offer Italy I Love you is exactly this… feel Rome on you.
Next time in Rome try to immerse yourself in something unique, authentic and that goes beyond an audio guide and any book that you can buy from a newsagent.
Look for unique experiences, live Rome like a Roman of yesterday or today.
