Over two thousand years ago, Rome invented building blocks with a mix of shops, businesses and apartments, that mostly replaced single-family housing. Times are changing again as some people become digital nomads who temporarily stay in coliving spaces before moving on instead of owning their homes – and Rome is again at the forefront of the Italian coliving movement.

Don‘t deny yourself any delicacies for dinner as the food here is varied and delicious. Rome is also home to over 100 sports venues.
