An eco-friendly weekend among glimpses of Rome
The image of Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn riding through the streets of Rome on (we must admit) the mythical “125” is an unforgettable icon that, like few others, celebrates “ la dolce vita”, the sweet life. That famous scene in Roman Holiday tells of the birth of a real phenomenon in the life of the capital: from the Fifties to the present day, the scooter has always been the perfect vehicle for travelling, living and loving in Rome. It is certainly the Romans’ favourite vehicle because it is practical and independent, unhampered by timetables and, above all, able to cope with the intense traffic that is a characteristic of the Italian capital. Now, imagine riding your scooter, a scooter that has all these features and, in addition, does not pollute the air while you discover this wonderful city: it is decidedly easier and nicer to admire Rome in this way, while also making a big saving on the cost of your trip.

If you are ready to go, we can propose some interesting new addresses. Prepare to taste authentic flavours, to rest in organic bed&breakfasts and to discover exclusive locations for fully enjoying Rome's “sweet life” in a new and absolutely green look.


WHERE ARE WE GOING TO SLEEP? HERE.

B&B Mammarampa.
Rampa Brancaleone, 12 www.mammarampa.it

Do you remember Anna Magnani going up Rampa Brancaleone in Pasolini’s famous film, Mamma Roma? Just halfway up those steps you will find Mammarampa, an eco-friendly B&B run by three sisters with a really unique travel spirit. Taste their organic breakfasts, they’re delicious! A last piece of advice. Ask them for information about the most hidden places to visit, the ones that are not in the guidebooks: they will enable you to experience Rome from a new, surprising perspective.

Locanda del Buonumore.
Via di Casal Selce, 441A Locanda del Buonumore

Among woods, castles and farmhouses, in a beautiful residential area, stands the Locanda del Buonumore, the Inn of Good Humour. In its 6,000 square metres of park you can relax and enjoy the green surroundings, maybe after a day spent riding your Askoll scooter, discovering the city. Before you leave, treat yourself to an abundant breakfast: enjoy the organic, biodynamic products with zero food miles, such as home-made bread and cakes, or jams made of fruit picked directly from the trees in the park.

WHERE CAN WE EAT SOMETHING? HERE.

Dar Parrucca
Via Macerata, 87 Dar Parucca
The name already says everything, or nearly everything. Home-style cooking and old-time conviviality are enhanced by the updated selection of exclusively organic products. This typical restaurant at Pigneto has already received many awards thanks to a menu that ranges from typical Roman cuisine to delicious alternatives for vegetarians and vegans.

Ketumbar
Via Galvani, 24 - www.ketumbar.it
We certainly cannot say that the Ketumbar is a simple restaurant in the Testaccio district in Rome: rather let us say that it is an experience to be enjoyed with all five senses. You will find that you can eat good, healthy food without forfeiting the most refined taste. A must-try.

Bistrot Bio
Via del Casaletto, 400 - www.bistrotbio.com
The Bistrot Bio offers creative and innovative cuisine, but deeply rooted in territory and tradition. The chef Marco Moroni and all the staff make the Bistrot Bio a warm and fascinating environment, in the green surroundings of the Valle dei Casali nature reserve. Don’t miss this experience.


WHERE ARE WE GOING THIS EVENING? HERE.

Freni e frizioni
Via del Politeama, 4/6 - www.freniefrizioni.com
An institution on the aperitif scene in Rome, Freni e Frizioni was founded 12 years ago in what was once a mechanic’s workshop. The bar stands on a wide raised square: from there you can see the Tiber and, at the same time, admire the city rooftops. Freni e Frizioni is not just an aperitif bar, but above all a cocktail bar, or rather a “street cocktail bar” as the expert bartenders like to say. Paying attention to every detail, with a real love of their work, they create a new selection of drinks every six months, including signature cocktails that you can only find here.

Bar del Fico
Piazza del Fico, 34/35 - www.bardelfico.com
The famous bar near Piazza Navona is the ideal choice for an aperitif in the heart of the city, sitting outside, in the cosy atmosphere of Piazza del Fico: a sophisticated and fashionable setting, the perfect place to end the day lightly.

Dorsia
Via Messina, 42 - www.dorsiaroma.com
Dorsia is the first Roman Cocktail & Restaurant Club with a retro-futuristic concept. What does that mean? You will understand as soon as you go in. The design and the furnishings are inspired by the typical materials of the Industrial Revolution, in a game that mixes anachronisms and retro technology, brass structures enclosing bright laminates. An eclectic and sophisticated atmosphere that is enhanced even more during its rich calendar of jazz concerts: not to be missed!


PS: Don’t miss the chance to visit the many organic markets held in the districts of Rome, like the one at Trastevere (the second Sunday of each month) or at Testaccio (open every day except Monday).
