Campo dei Fiori

We got up early and had our typical breakfast of coffee and cornetti at Bar Farnese, but then the kids came down and decided it was prosecco and beer time at the place right in front of the apartment.

So we people watched as the market went on in front of us. After the prosecco, beer, and Irish Coffee was gone, it was time for the kids to head to their hotel on the water near the airport, where they had decided to spend the night due to their early Easy Jet flight back to Venice.

We took a taxi to Termini with them, said goodbye, and walked back, stopping at Osteria del Gallo for lunch. Our homemade fettucine, mine with amatriciana sauce and his with arabbiatta, was amazing. Back to the apartment to do laundry, pack for the next day, and take a nap.

At dinnertime, I led Rich to my favorite pizza in Rome, the cracker thin bufala mozzarella at La Sagrestina near the Pantheon. The prosciutto with melon was also delicious, as was Rich's pasta. In fact, my mouth is watering as I write this...

And of course, afterward there was time for gelato!

We watched "the show" from our windows for quite awhile but finally turned in since we had an early day coming up.
