Around the world with the hottest food and travel profiles.
1. Who are you?
Hi, my name is Giulia and I’m a travel writer / blogger based in Rome.
2. What is your site about?
My blog is about unconventional destinations, abandoned places, street art, outskirts, food and wine, urban landscapes, weird spots, and basically all the places I happen to visit and become very enthusiastic about. I mostly blog about Italy (where I live) and eastern Europe, focusing on independent, off-the-beaten path travel.
3. What is one food tip you would give about where you are living now?
Well, I live in Italy, where you don’t need to stress too much to find good food. There is just one rule: to venture outside the city center in order to avoid tourist traps, as it’s very difficult to find genuine food in the city center and all restaurants and cafes are very expensive. I love wandering around food markets (my favorite ones are in Testaccio and in Prati) and grab a slice of pizza at bakeries.
4. What is one travel tip you would give about where you are living now?
Again, to venture outside the city center. All the most charming and genuine neighborhoods in Rome are outside the UNESCO area.
5. What is the best thing to eat where you are living now?
I love pizza, which actually originated in Naples, but you can find it all over Italy. Pasta is great too, especially traditional Roman pasta recipes such as ‘carbonara’ (bacon, parmesan cheese, black pepper, and raw eggs) and cacio e pepe (pecorino cheese and black pepper). As any other true Italian, I’m totally into carbs!
