I’m Claudia – a New Yorker living in Rome since 2006.

Sounds like a long time – I can hardly believe it myself! Truth be told, my heart and attitude are of my hometown NYC. I make the best of it in the Eternal City– of course! Gotta do it!

I’m often asked by visitors where to eat, where to shop, etc. As a web designer and experiences curator, I decided to go interactive with my suggestions.

So welcome to #NewYorkerinRome – my completely 100% biased and limited guide to favorite haunts in Rome and around. This is so not a touristic appreciation of the town – it’s more a “how I survive here thanks to these havens of sanity and delight.
