On the way home, we had 24 hours in Rome. My parents stayed for another day and W two more, but E, J and I had to get back to London.
We walked through Rome. All over Rome. W is pretty sure he saw almost every corner of Rome on foot. But I only made it to the Trevi fountain, the Pantheon and the Piazza Navona. We also ate very well and I would recommend all of the restaurants and bars we sampled.
For dinner on Saturday night we went to Roscioli and then for drinks we went to a wine bar called Il Vinaietto and a beer bar called Open Baladin. Il Vinaiettio was very relaxed and inexpensive but Open Baladin took itself quite seriously.
The next day we walked through the Forum and down to the Pyramid of Cestius and went to Eatily. I had already been to the Eatily in New York, but Rome’s has a very different energy. It’s kind of like an upscale, Italian food, mega mall – in a good way. We had lunch there and then bought loads of goodies. Then said goodbye to each other and to Italy…
