Broke in Rome

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I explore what fun things there are to do in Rome when one is feeling particularly lazy and definitely broke. From street-art tours to religious pilgrimage, this post has it all.

The Price of Politeness

Hello and benvenuti to yet another instalment of Roman Hot Tea. This Tesoro Irlandese post is my Carrie Bradshaw moment. Please, gentlepeople, take your seats. Today, I wish to out myself as not the table-flipping badass I thought I always would be in the face of a total and utter stronzo. I also want to explore some pensieri on social behaviour and the strange place those of us single in our twenties’ find ourselves.

‘diventare uno con me stessa’

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I own up to having kept much of my personal experiences here in Rome a secret. The results of my Instagram poll on audience interest was unanimous: spill the T. I vow to show you the true Rome, as I live it, as I see it. You can find this content on the Crybaby O’Clock section.

2021: Wrapped Up

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I discuss my highlights from Rome 2021 and discuss what I hope to see for myself in 2022. I also discuss what a journey this site has been and how grateful I am for all those who check in 400+ times from 16 countries! It has been an honour. See you in 2022!

Your Health is Your Wealth or La Vostra Salute è il Vostro Possesso più Stimato

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I discuss the phrases and words you will need to discuss your wellbeing with a professional when sick in Italy. I am currently recovering from a nasty flu (thankfully not Covid) and wanted to rectify the gap in my Italian language knowledge regarding my health and wellbeing… So, here you go!

Julie d’Aubigny: How to Do Whatever the Hell You Want & Do it Well

In this Tesoro Irlandese Crybaby O’Clock blogpost, I discuss the wild and fascinating figure of Julie d’Aubigny and how her story stands apart from the usual narrative of ‘One Track Mind Doggedness’ in achieving greatness. She is an absolute legend.

Galleria Borghese & Damien Hirst

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I discuss the history of the Borghese Gallery and Borghese Gardens, as well as the artist Damien Hirst, whose work can be seen on exhibition here. The exhibit is called Archaeology Now and features many of Hirst’s works from previous collections.
