There's a big difference between visiting a city and living there. After being a Roman resident for a couple months, I have a few lessons in Italian culture to share with you. Here's the first installment.
Italian Lesson #1: Walk everywhere. Get lost.
Italians are stereotypically known for their Vespas, but real Romans use their own two feet to get around just as much as those cute little mopeds. Walking is the best way to get to know any city, and this is particularly true of Rome. Everything in the historic center of downtown is close together, and you'll be amazed at the hidden gems that you find en route to your intended destination. My very first night in Rome, we got lost and stumbled upon our first view of the Pantheon at night. Our accidental discovery of the Pantheon made it even more breath-taking than it already is.
