If you’re counting the days until you arrive in Rome or if you’re just dreaming about the the city, you might want to get a copy of Federico Fellini’s classic film La Dolce Vita (1961). Considered one of the best movies of all time, the movie follows the “sweet life” of a tabloid journalist (Marcello Mastroianni) who covers the glitzy show business life in Rome. In constant search for the next big scandal, he is continually seduced by the decadent life led by Rome’s pampered rich. The film also stars Anita Ekberg and Anouk Aimee as well as the Eternal City herself.
