  1. Normally, in Rome, one rose costs not more than a couple of Euros. So, if you’re visiting Rome and plan to go out with your girlfriend, it might be helpful to buy a rose as soon as the evening starts (flower stands are opened 24 hrs a day in Rome): your girlfriend would be happy and nobody is gonna try to sell you another one 🙂
