When in Rome

After a week and a half of cloudy wet weather in the UK and France, the weather Gods finally gave us a break with clear skies and +30°C in Rome.  Much like Paris, Rome’s streets are filled with tourists, market vendors, and of course delicious restaurants.   Since our stop in Italy would last 4 days, we decided to take our time today to explore the streets.

After checking into our AirBnB room, we couldn’t resist the temptation of fresh pasta and pitchers of wine. Thanks to the power of Google and Yelp, we settled on Aquila Nera (near the Termini Railway Station) which didn’t disappoint, plus it had a on-street patio for ppl watching and soaking the rays.

With our stomachs full, we decided to burn off the carbs and walk the streets to the famous Trevi Fountain. Like all the tourist spots, this place was extremely packed, but we still managed to litter the fountain with coins and wishes.

The next tourist trap on the list was the Spanish Steps which linked the Spanish Embassy and Trinità dei Monti church.  Unfortunately I forgot to read the memo that is was closed for restoration.  But on the bright side, I got a tourist-free photo of the steps, #Winning!
