A rosary blessed by the Pope is something you must get home from Rome. If you are a Catholic, there is no end to the ‘papal-blessed’ items that you can buy from specialty shops out there. Even if you are not a Catholic, you sure would have a Catholic friend who would treasure one such gift.
2. Chef aprons

This is your way of reliving the superb taste of those rich Italian wines and pastas that you had while in Rome.
3. Wall plaques
Those uniquely crafted design plaques are suited both for indoors and outdoors. Available in clay and wood, each one is a masterpiece that can boast of meticulous perfection even to the minutest details.
You can buy a couple of DVDs that will take you to a virtual tour of the entire country. Once back at home, what better way to freshen up your Italian memories than leaning back in your armchair and watching the video? Better yet, give your friends a feel of Rome and the country.
