travels, photos, and family
We had a nice Continental breakfast again this morning: Cappuccino, croissant with butter cream, hard boiled eggs with olive oil, yogurt, cheese, sausage and more.
We set out for a birds eye view of Rome from the top of the large Victor Emmanuel monument. It was early enough in the day that there was no line at the elevator to the observation deck, so it was fun to see all the domes and trees. We decided to have a snack while we enjoyed the view.
We wanted to go to the Tevere (Tiber) river again, this time via the Campo di Fiori market and piazza. The market was wonderful and Shirley purchased some beautiful tomatoes and other items. The Campo is also known as a martyr site for Giordano Bruno, who was burned at the stake here in 1600 for heresy. (He thought the Reformation had some good points.)
Our other big find here was a cafe serving Bufalo Mozzarella pizza with basil and tomato.
We then walked into a new area (for us) and made it to the Ponte San Angelo. Very historic in both good and bad ways.
We then had gelato at Piazza Navone, and dinner at the trattoria across the street from our hotel. Let me see if this post will hold two more food pics.
