"I gatti di Roma" Do As Romans Do Tip by OrlandoBR

Do As Romans Do, Rome: 157 reviews and 139 photos


Rome is the city of cats. There are LOTS of them there. Roman cats are big and fat, and they love to hang out in the Coliseum and Roman Forum - basically, where there are ruins, there are cats. Try to catch them, they're usually docile, even though my sister was bitten once. You'll find calendars, books, postcards, all kinds of memorabilia of these little nice Roman creatures.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
