About me:

Hi there! I'm Nora... a Canadian living in Rome! :) I've been here for a couple of years now and I'm on a mission to steer visitors of this beautiful city away from its tourist traps. If those are avoided, your experience of the Eternal City will be nothing short of magical. You'll undoubtedly fall in love with the "real" Rome if between the monument hopping, you find time to take in the more authentic, local experiences. I hope to contribute my knowledge in making your trip as wonderful as possible! :) Read more

My passions are:

  • Writing
  • Arts
  • Travelling

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Restaurants & food
  • Shops & markets

I love my city because: Because Rome is magic around every corner. There is always something to admire and dream about, if you can forget about the chaos for just a second! :) Roman cuisine is succulent. The coffee is unparalleled even in the most unsuspecting places. Beautiful sights, wonderful food, perfect coffee... what else can I ask for! A Canadian in Rome found her cup of tea... or coffee :)

My idea of a great trip is: Laughter. Lots and lots of it! :) A great trip means wandering around without a map and not knowing where to sleep until a few hours before bed time. The money dedicated to food cannot be compromised by any means! Only emergency situations (i.e. bleeding profusely) "may be" a valid reason to dig into the food money!!

I have travelled to: Canada, USA, Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Greece, France, UAE, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Hungary, those are all I remember for now...
