Buongiorno! Truthfully, we were completely underwhelmed by the food in Rome. Restaurants and cafes were everywhere, and yet nearly every restaurant served the same thing. We definitely had a better dining experience in Florence! We were also amazed at how everyone still dines outside (with the help of lots of heat lamps!), despite the fact that it was mid- November and quite chilly!
Dining outside like the Romans.
Lasagna and a white pizza (I like my pizza drenched in tomato sauce, so it was definitely lacking to me)
A beautiful bridge connecting downtown Rome and Vatican City. One of my favorite pictures!
Whenever I visit new cities, I love checking out the markets! Lovely fresh flowers...
Hats galore! Too bad I can't pull off hats at all, but that didn't stop me from trying on a few!
The stunning Piazza Navona!
Oh how I desperately miss the amazing cappuccinos we had every, single day!! Starbucks does not do this drink any justice whatsoever. *sigh* I miss them more than our daily gelatos, haha.
A sunny shot outside the Pantheon. There's my husband looking rather GQ! ;)
The famed Spanish Steps.
A perfect perch for people watching...
Climbed to the top of the Spanish Steps.
A cool glass display inside the Gucci store (we couldn't go to Italy and not check out Gucci!!)
Next up: Florence!
