The only thing I had in my mind when I passed by Piazza Navona next to my place, was lunch. Ristorante, pizzeria, trattoria, panificio… In each corner there were dozens of options which to choose from, most of them in this area unfortunate tourist traps, though. But that I didn’t mind, I knew exactly where I was going … More Little piece of heaven
It was one of those warm spring days in Rome on Easter Saturday when you can feel the promise of the summer in the air. I stepped on the Leonardo Express at the airport to get as soon as possible to the heart of the city – I couldn’t wait to see the familiar places that … More The promise of summer
I got home couple of weeks ago from my Grand Summer Tour in Italy, and for the past weeks I’ve tried to adapt to this Finnish summer again… The weather here has been pretty bad this summer, unless you like rain, below +20 degrees temperatures and heavy wind… so when I landed in Helsinki and … More Arrivals… and departures

I have no clue what I … More Dolce Vita – 15 days of Italian living
It’s been only 1,5 days that I’ve been in Rome now, but it feels I’ve strolled around the city for ages – in a good way! I love this city and though it’s been super hot (+30 degrees celcius) and it’s been just me and myself here this time, I feel so happy in this … More Rome Alone
Finally the departure-time is getting closer! I’m leaving for holidays to Italy next Sunday, and after all this rain (oh yes, it’s raining also now) and cold weather we’ve had in Finland for weeks now, I’m so ready to leave and feel the warmth of the sun again… and have some oh-so-good-can’t-get-enough taste experiences! I’ve been to … More Next stop: Rome-Fabriano-Senigallia-Anzio
I think I’ve made it clear that I’m very passionate when it comes to pizza – and especially to pizza crust. I know there are as many opinions as there are eaters on how the crust should be but for me, the crispy, thin brick-oven crust is the one. And only. And if that’s what … More Pizza. In Rome.
