I've arrived in Rome! I have been here 24 hours and still haven't had a gelato. Perhaps this evening, there is a reportedly a great place not far from my apartment in the Monti neighbourhood.
Today I revisited nearby churches I haven't gotten to spend much time in before, especially the magnificent Santa Maria Maggiore and St. Peter in Chains where crowds gather to see Michelangelo's sculpture of Moses.
On this stay, in my new neighbourhood, I'll be trying out new restaurants, shops, and this new gelateria Ciuri Cirui, which is also a pasticceria siciliana and comes highly recommended by Katie Parla .
