We awoke to a cloudy morning and after coffee on our balcony, readied ourselves for a day trekking around Rome.
A few sights in the neighborhood as the sun came out…
Castel Sant’ Angelo was our first stop for the day, and this was our first time to visit it. Crossing the Ponte Sant’ Angelo bridge was a beggar and a group of nuns.
Love the sculptures on the bridge.
If you’re in Rome, you have to visit Castel Sant Angelo! The views over Rome and St. Peter’s Basilica are amazing. Here’s your photo tour…
St. Peter’s in the background and what a view over Rome!
Done with the Castel tour, we crossed back over the bridge to go in search of lunch.
We were craving burgers and a change from pasta, so after googling burgers found The Meat Market Roma in our neighborhood. Wow! What super yummy delicious burgers hand made with premium fresh meat. This is a MUST EAT while in Rome and they have more than just burgers.
Shew! – time for a nap after that massive burger and beer, and then up and out on the town again for the afternoon lightning round of Rome. First stop, one of our favorites, The Pantheon to people watch and soak in the history.
Time for an espresso pick me up…
And we’re off again… see how many landmarks you can identify!
Back home again to rest, have a cocktail on the balcony and then dinner at the Abbey Theatre Irish Pub around the corner from us. This is also one of our favorite stops for fish and chips and lamb stew. And can’t not have gelato for dessert when The Frigidarium is just a few steps further! Good thing we’re walking so much!
Time for bed! More Rome tomorrow.
