Every day Labhart comes into contact with people who love and appreciate travel. For him, this hobby, which he has made his profession, is a freedom with which he constantly discovers new destinations in this world and meets new people.


My favourite place in this wide world is in Europe. Rome has a special charm for me. In the Italian capital there is a very special atmosphere in the air: I love the local people, I like the variety of cultural sights, I appreciate the charm of Italian women and I enjoy the Roman nightlife. Not to mention the excellent restaurants where you can end a successful day. I have a particular restaurant for each of my culinary preferences. For example, for fish I go to the Pierluigi. For barbecue you can meet me at the  Molto and to eat pizza far away from the tourist hustle and bustle I am drawn to the Pizzeria San Marco. After dinner I like to have another drink in the Bar Salotto 42 at the Piazza di Pietra. Particularly good hotels in Rome for me are the JK Palace  and that Hotel de Russie.

Drinking a cappuccino or a cornetto in one of the typical cafés is part of a perfect day in Rome for me. I also like to see some of the famous sights and let homemade pasta melt in my mouth at lunchtime. I like to sit in one of the many restaurants on the Piazza del Popolo and people watch. In the evening, I dress up, meet friends and end the evening with good conversation. A must-do in Italy is, of course, shopping.

Probably the most famous place in Rome is the Basillica di Santa Maria Maggiore. What you should not miss is the Vatican. The city state is really impressive. Also you should walk along the Piazza Venezia and have seen the Colosseum. I recommend a side trip to the roof terrace of Il Vittoriano. The view over Rome is an experience. My motto in life is that there are only two days in a year when you can't do anything. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow. And today is the right day to love, to believe and to simply live. And for me, this today can only be experienced in Rome.

I love the local people, I like the variety of cultural sights, I appreciate the charm of Italian women and I enjoy the nightlife there.
