We had a blast in Rome. I wore them out being a tour guide but they saw all I wanted them to see. Walter was super and enjoyed his pecans. The location is freaking perfect to be a tourist. The girl at breakfast was so good to us with our coffee addiction that we left her a nice tip. The breakfast food was lovely.
Daniel who met us at the airport was awesome and adorable waiting for the bags which took forever to arrive on the luggage carousel. The ATM by 8 was perfect. Our driver whose name I can't pronounce (Dematrio????) was so nice and knowledgeable and utterly charming. Our guide, Francesca, was awesome. She gave us THE BEST orientation tour!!!! We have been walking around Rome like natives because she was amazing. I think we got a super tour!!! We were all thrilled and have been in three bookstores looking for her "magic book!" It was all very, very special!
We have been super tourists-since we arrived. The Coliseum and Forum were so wonderful today. We ate lunch in Travestre, did the campo dei fiori after lunch, and bought FABULOUS bags of pasta for presents back home. Dinner last night was super..had pasta right around the corner and loved the ravioli and dessert was to die for. . We walked to the top of the Paletine Hill and the jasmine was stunning as we're the views. Went to villa farnesina and palazzo corsini and got a private tour of the gardens which was spectacular!!!! I spent money on Via del Pellegrino. Will go back to one shop when the boys aren't foaming at the mouth with boredom.
Vatican and Villa borghese tomorrow.
Antonia called to check on us and Walter has been super.
A flower vendor gave me a bunch of peonies today and told me I was bellisimo. And we have not been pick pocketed!
Might wait for Florence to buy my nephew a leather jacket. We found a shop today but they had too many zippers
Tonight is a taxi to pantheon, dinner, Trevino fountain and piazza navona to eat a tarfulo at bar tre scaliini
Tourist Tip: Did you know that if you smile nice they let you use the toilets in the ache logical office at the Forum???? You potty by a bust of some god.
So much fun.
