August in Rome - 2018 Edition
August in Rome is a strange month. The city is still crowded, but virtually all of the Romans have left. Italians traditionally head to the sea for at least a few days of summer vacation but I happen to love staying in town. We do spend weekends at the beach or in the country, but most of the month finds us enjoying the empty piazzas and quiet streets, plotting a September getaway.
