Traditions, Lifestyle & Habits in Rome

Many tourists may find the habits of local residents quite unusual. Thus, when gallant and polite Italians gather in the crowd, they can create a real "crush". You may be surprised, but such behavior is not considered rude. Local residents are accustomed to huge crowds in public transport and shopping centers, so they simply try to free their way in all possible ways. Many local residents actively use body language during a conversation, but among the representatives of elite such gestures are considered a sign of bad manners.

Italians are not accustomed to have a nourishing breakfast, so the majority of local cafes and restaurants offer to their guests coffee and fresh rolls for breakfast. Lunch is considered the main meal. As a rule, it consists of at least three dishes. A dessert, which is so familiar to Europeans, Italians can replace with cheese platter and a glass of wine. Drinking wine is not forbidden here even in the middle of the day. Despite the love of local people to this drink, the general attitude to alcohol here is more than restrained. Alcohol is most often taken only during the meal. When it comes to appearance and clothes, the locals prefer to dress in a strict and formal way. No extravagant and revealing dresses are worn in everyday life.
Day of the foundation of Rome is the most interesting national holiday. It is celebrated annually on April 21. Sometimes the celebration lasts for several days and during the holiday here are organized various interesting cultural events and ceremonies. By the way, every year the goddess of Rome is chosen during the festival. This is the winner of a beauty contest. Vestals play one of the main roles during the holiday. Vestals are girls who are the messengers of the Roman goddess Vesta. They carefully monitor compliance with all ancient rites. During the festival they must keep an eye on the sacred fire, which, according to an ancient legend, is the incarnation of goddess Vesta. During the celebration travelers can watch interesting theatrical performances, which are devoted to important historical events. All main events take place near the temple of Hercules.
