More scooters, gelato, The Vatican, freshly made pasta, fountains, The Pantheon …
Again, we saw a lot on our second day in Rome without stressing about it - we just started wandering about, came past the Pantheon, and ended up on Via dei Coronari - where Michelle and Giulia both recommended to get gelato from Gelateria Del Teatro. It really was amazing. Might have even been one of the best ice creams I’ve tasted so far! I got chocolate, coconut, and Sicilian almond. (The chocolate and coconut one probably had fancier names, too, but I can’t remember).
Apart from the gelato place Via dei Coronari was a beautiful street anyway with lots of little shops, galleries, and bars/restaurants. It definitely felt a bit less touristy than some of the other areas in Rome - really loved that!
We then walked over to the Vatican and somehow, magically, got in for free. I don’t really know how we did it, just remember Louis’ mum suggesting we’d just walk up to the entrance. That’s what we did - and ended up inside. It might have been the time - we must have got in around 6.30pm and at 7pm they kicked everyone out. Maybe that’s the trick?!
After the Vatican we ended back up on Via dei Coronari and decided to get some pasta from a small place called Pasta Imperiale. There are only a few tables inside, so it seemed to be more of a take-away place. But a very good one! I went for Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini with Butter and Sage (and of course Parmesan). So good!
After dinner we got more gelato by the way. ;) Via dei Coronari was definitely one of my favourite places in Rome!
So, that was a bit of a food focused post today, but it will be the only one ;)
