Walking back to your lovely summer house
You are walking back to your lovely summer house then, the one with the beautiful little garden with a few olive trees that make the splendid shady place where you can have your cup of coffee in the morning and a lovely dinner all together at night, and you are considering the idea of performing a clean-up.

Rome is experience. So when you want one, take your time, go there for as long as possible, for a week or a couple, for a month or a whole summer. Go there and relish the dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing) as the lovely woman in Eat, Pray, Love did, as all the Italians live.
