Through the lens: Rome photography

Memories can last a lifetime, but you can’t show them off to your friends, and sometimes you just don’t have the words to explain how beautiful and unique your experiences were. On these occasions, only a photograph will do. There are more than enough opportunities for unmissable snaps in Rome, and that’s before we even get to the (wholly necessary) food pictures. So, for all of you budding photographers on their way to the Eternal City, we’re here to show you the best of Rome photography.

Pasta Making

Eating vegan in Rome

In a country famous for melt in the mouth mozzarella, salty cured cuts of meat, and creamy gelato, it can sometimes feel like Italy wasn’t made for those who follow a plant-based diet. This might have been true in the past; a culinary tour of the boot shaped country would have been wasted on vegans, who would likely be forced to endure breadsticks dipped in balsamic and olive oil for the duration of their stay. However, with the ever-growing prevalence of vegetarian and vegan diets, a new breed of Italian chefs are reimagining old classics – and sometimes looking directly to their culinary history – to make sure these customers are catered to. This is very much true in the capital, where there is now a plethora of options for those avoiding animal products.
