Day 2- Rome

No longer jet-lagged, we were ready to conquer the city. After brief deliberation, we dropped in to Re Artu – a cute café just around the corner from our hotel. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. We ate breakfast there every day (and sometimes lunch and/or dinner too). Great, reasonably priced food is hard to beat. Although, I did have a rude awakening with regards to European portion sizes with regards to my cappuccino:

This was a day of walking. We hit the Trevi Fountain (which was, naturally, under construction. It looked pretty through the chain link fence…but there was no cliché tossing the coin into the fountain to make a wish and promise to return):

The Circo Massimo and Boca di Veramente:

The Spagno area with the Spanish Steps (fountain also under construction, because why wouldn’t it be?):

And Borghese Park. We also passed by this gorgeous bridge circa 67BC:

Food included a divine Caprese Salad from Re Artu, Pizza and Prosciutto and Melon from Li Ronni, and gelato (tiramisu and niccollo flavored):
