Iced Coffee in Italy
An American in Rome – Italy

As the summer temperatures hover in the 90s in Rome, the idea of a hot coffee (no matter how tiny those espressi may be) starts to feel less and less appealing. Despite the weather, it is typically hard to find large cups of iced coffee, with the cubes piled high. There are, however, local varieties [...] The post Iced Coffee in Italy appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

In 2022, everything in Italy is open. The country has phased out its restrictive ‘Green Pass’ that required proof of three doses to eat in restaurants or even use public transportation.

However, I want to update you on the [...] The post What Happens if You Test Positive for COVID in Italy appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

Florence is well known for its many culinary delights: bistecca alla Fiorentina, hearty ribollita, and savory lampredotto sandwiches. However, while it honors its Tuscan traditions well, it also has a surprisingly contemporary dining scene given its size relative to cities like Milan and Rome. My favorite example is the gorgeous Melaleuca. Melaleuca is an airy [...] The post Melaleuca Bistrot in Florence appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

Why You Should Never Wash a Moka Pot With Soap

I would argue that every household in Italy has at least one Moka pot. The 8-sided coffee maker is iconic because it is simple but so very good at making strong, stove-top coffee. Most households have more than one! A small two-shot Moka for single servings, going up to 8- or 12- for when you [...] The post Why You Should Never Wash a Moka Pot With Soap appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

Halloween is not yet celebrated in Italy the way that it is in North America, but the holiday is absolutely starting to catch on. You can find spooky decorations, Halloween-themed cookies, and even some events geared towards children. However other traditions like bobbing for apples and even trick or treating are much less common. Halloween [...] The post Halloween in Italy appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

I used to believe that fresh pasta was somehow better than dried pasta. However, living in Italy has proven to be a lesson in many things – and fresh pasta is simply different than dried and each has its beloved place in various recipes. Just know that the idea that fresh pasta is superior is [...] The post Why Dried Pasta is as Good as Fresh Pasta appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more

Jasmine of Questa Dolce Vita was recently sharing her experiences about breastfeeding in Italy, and it made me think about how different social acceptance feels compared to in the United States.

A lot has changed when it comes to payments in Italy. You can now use credit cards widely, but other contactless payment services like Venmo and ApplePay are less common around the country. That means that how much cash to bring to Italy really depends on the kinds of purchases that you plan to make.

Why (Most) Italians Don’t Drink Cappuccino After 11 am
An American in Rome – Italy
by Natalie

I receive a lot of worried messages asking me if it is true that Italians NEVER drink cappuccino after 11 am, and what visitors can do if they really want that coffee fix later in the day. While there is no law in Italy that bans a cappuccino after 11 am, you really won’t find [...] The post Why (Most) Italians Don’t Drink Cappuccino After 11 am appeared first on An American in Rome ..read more
