THE ROME REPORT: written by Liza Salvatore (Roman historian/Papal scholar)

SAVE MONEY IN ROME AT CAFE`S. If getting a coffee on Via Veneto or some other tourist spot in Rome, keep in mind that your coffee at the stand up bar is 1/4th the price of the same coffee if you sit down at a table and order it from a waiter. This is especially important on Via Veneto where a coffee/espresso can cost you 4-5 Euro/$6.00.

Free Food Video Milan is a great city of Fashion. As with any center of Fashion, the price of food is comparable to Gucci Couture… unless you are like me and know the secret to a FREE DINNER.
In Milan, the have a “Happy Hour,” but unlike happy hour in America, they don’t give half price drink specials. Instead they give out appetizers like nuts and potato chips.

Milan Castle and the Secret to Free Museums

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Milan Castle Video This Castle is over seven centuries old. It was one of the most “sumptuous courts of all Europe. It then became an army barracks during foreign occupation by first the Spanish, then the Austrians, the French, and then the Austrians again. In the 19th century, a united Italy restored the castle to what it once was. They even restored the church which was used by the occupiers as a stable. Ironic since there is a statue of an Austrian Saint in the Courtyard.


Besides the free castle, there are twelve museum housed in the building. They are;

Museum of Ancient Art

Egyptian Museums

Picture Gallery

Museum of Prehistory

Museum of Decorative Arts

Museum of Musical Instruments
