And where to buy them?

I have been a bit out of touch the last few years and will be in Rome for a few days in a few days. Looking for games I cannot buy in the US, preferably Italian but possibly otherwise, and a good location in Rome to get them. I have no car and will be staying in Trastevere.

Whilst I can't add anything to a list of things to get... I can share a story

I'm an Australian and my parents are currently on holiday (vacation ) in Europe... They're currently in Italy and were just in a town called Lucca... They just happened to be there when "some big comic thing" (their words) was on... Turns out that thing was Lucca Comics & Games: Edizione 2016... I could have got a copy of Tuscany FROM Tuscany! (the game doesn't interest me at all, and would only be the pure coolness of it haha)...

Anyway... [/endstory]

Go then. There are other worlds than these.

I was in Rome a few years ago tagging along on a conference with my wife. Apart from just exploring Rome, one of my best experiences was this place: La Civetta sul Comò in Via Create 8 https://www.facebook.com/ludoteca.lacivetta/
Not sure if they had things for sale but it seemed like a good place to know the local gaming scene.

I think I walked there from Testaccio (just across the river from Trastevere) and it took about 45 mins past some nice parks.

Met some really friendly local gamers and was made to feel welcome.
