    How: Easy! by walking! It’s healthy for you, for us and for the city.

    Why: Rome City Center is an UNESCO world heritage site, it is worth to walk, history and art are all around.

    Can you do something that can be sustainable for this City??
    How: Stay away from the madding crowd! You can experience Rome at its best without being an element of overtoursim. Discover something different from the overcrowded venues.
    Why: Masterpieces of Michelangelo, Raphael and Caravaggio and Roman Ruins are everywhere around the city. Rome is full of underdiscoreved gems. You will support small venues, and small business!

    Can you experience a Roman style in sustainable way?
    How: Go local for food, for drinking, for shopping. Even in the city center you can find real local food, local markets, local artisans.
    Why: You can support the local food system even in an urban context, boosting local employment and preserving biodiversity. Shortening food supply chains is possible.

    Can you get integrated in the Roman life?
