Yvonne Scìo, actress, model, filmmaker and social rights activist, shares her secrets to the Eternal City.
What makes Rome unique?
The beauty of the decadence
What places and experiences do you always suggest to friends?
To go to the Fori Imperiali at night with head phones and have Piero Angelo explain how it was in Ancient Rome. There are so many things to do like riding a bike through Rome to see all its beauty!! Palazzo Farnese, Galleria Borghese and the gardens at sunset in June, and of course, the Campidoglio at night.
Favourite galleries, museums and sites in Rome?
What do you miss most when away?
Italian humor, and also the spontaneity, without any second meaning interest. Not in a conventional way, but in an Italian way.
Do you have any favourite shops?
None. I like markets and small boutiques.

A glass of good strong red wine and never say no to champagne, a good one, as my mother taught me!
