Top 10 Rome Blogs
This blog, written in Italian, is dedicated to everything Rome (hence the title being taken from the 06 phone prefix of Rome). You'll find breaking city news, restaurant reviews, cultural event listings, and more and the blog is updated many times a day.
A great blog for quirky musings about the city, with their aim being to keep readers up to date on everything "eternally cool" about Rome. This ranges from art to fashion, food to design, monuments to literature.
This new blog is written by Rob and Petulia, a Brit and a Roman, who share their passion for Rome's restaurants. New content is being rapidly added and their recommendations are always spot on, giving readers a great way to discover new eating choices beyond the usual tourist fare.
Literally meaning "Make Rome Better," this Italian blog is written by Martina, a young Roman. She takes to her blog to discuss improvements that could be made to the city, from repairing broken sidewalks to a call for dog owners to pick up after their pets. A different, and important, view of the city.
Written by an American ex-pat, this witty blog has followed the Sex and the City exploits of its author for years. The recent arrival of a baby has slowed the updates, but there are still signs of life and the archives are worth digging into.
Arlene's hilarious blog chronicles her decision to leave LA, where she was working as a screenwriter, to Rome. She writes about the ups and downs of making the transition to Italy, keeping up her screenwriting career, and discovering all the quirks that Rome has to offer.

American scholar Katie has been in Rome for 6 years, working as a travel writer and giving private tours. Though her blog follows her travels around the world, most recently Istanbul, the bulk of the blog is rich with good information about Rome, especially its monuments and restaurants.
Though not quite updated daily, Giovanni's images of Rome capture the spirit of the city.
A group city blog, five locals write about their favorite places to hang out, eat, and enjoy the city. What I like about this blog is that because it's written by people living in the city, it often explores places and areas you never read about in traditional articles about Rome.
I'm not a huge soccer fan, but it is an essential part of Italian culture. This amazing blog, dedicated to Rome's AS Roma squad, will give you the fix you're looking for if you can't be in the stadium yourself.
