After our nap, we woke up ready to explore Rome at night and to find more food! We headed out with map in hand to wander the neighborhood. We spied a little street lined with cafes and shops just behind the Piazza Navona that looked inviting and decided to eat a little here, a little there… The cafes are smart – they entice in customers by putting a little table set with divine-looking dishes and drinks to lure you in. It worked.
We decided to try the prosciutto with fresh mozzarella cheese for our “starter”, along with some house red wine and grappa for Wally.
Happy Wally – drink in hand, food on the way…
Yum – so light and fresh…So we ate a bit and dusk fell, so we decided to move on and see the Piazza Navona next. Amazing fountains with just a few people wandering about. Artists were set up and musicians playing – what ambiance!
Tomorrow is my birthday and we have lots of Rome to cover!
(And yes, I did plan my birthday in Rome ~ how will I top it next year???)
