eating, shopping and relaxing in eur | rome

Today I want to share my favorite places in an area of Rome, which I personally love very much: EUR You can read more about the neighborhood HERE.



Palombini

You visit Palombini when you want to be hip with the hip ones in EUR. The cafe is located near the square Colosseum, and here you can enjoy your cocktail or coffee, both indoors and outdoors. During summer the outside area is a wonderful place to sit for a drink. You can get the most from Palombini: lunch, aperitivo, coffee and tea, and the place has a huge selection of cakes and desserts. Enjoy the quiet surroundings and who knows, maybe you’ll meet Roma player Francesco Totti. He's been seen here before ...

Gente

If you are you looking for all the good brands in one place, you must go visit Gente. In here you will find luxury goods: Prada, Miu Miu, Fendi, Chloe, Hunter, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, Diane Von Furstenberg, Piazza Sempione, Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, Repetto, Sergio Rossi are just some of the names you find in Gente. And Gente you can find in several places in Rome. Both for men and women.

Stelio Malori

Stelio Malori is a great store, when you need new shoes. The shop sells several different brands all in a good medium price range. Here you'll find good examples on flip-flops, espadrillos, stilettos and boots. The shop is one of the best in Rome, when it comes to the perfect mix of quality, design and price. Aside from a few of the larger Roman shopping centers, you only find Stelio Malori in EUR on Viale Europa.

À la page

In EUR you can find a little wonderful interior shop. À la page is the name, and despite the few square meters, in here you will find lots of great design items such as beautiful glass vases, pillows and blankets from Designers Guild, scented candles from the best brands and cool stuff from Ortigia, Sia, and much more.

Piscina delle Rose

If you visit Rome during summer, you can easily need some water. Obviously you can choose to take the train to the beach in Ostia, but you can also choose the faster and geographically closer solution: a day by the pool in Piscina delle Rose.

You find the outdoor pool near the lake in EUR. In here you can pay for a deck chair and the use of a lovely big pool, where you can enjoy sun and water all day. The place is best on weekdays and sometimes on Saturday. Avoid Sundays when the place gets too filled with people. Remember to bring a swimming cap! It is imperative in order to jump into the pool. If you don’t have one, you can buy one in Piscina delle Rose. It’s not exactly sexy, but you get used to it.

Il laghetto and Giolitti

The artificial lake in EUR, which is commonly known as Il Laghetto (the small lake) is one of the best places in the neighborhood when you want some relax. The lake is actually not so small, and with the peculiar views of skyscrapers (by Roman standards) you can enjoy a day surrounded by nature. You can rent rowboats and sail on the lake, or you can just relax in the grass with an ice cream from Rome's famous ice cream place, Giolitti, who also has a small cafe in the park by the lake. Il Laghetto is a great place, when you need some time away from everything and just want to relax.
