Cacio e pepe at Josef.
Caffe della Pace. We popped in to have some drinks with Alessandra’s friend, whose family has owned this lovely, landmark bar for 60 years. Sadly, Caffe della Pace will likely close in a few months because the landlord (the Church) wants to give them the boot. This would be a sin.
Julius Caesar walked on this floor!
Pretend horse outside in Villa, a massive family-style restaurant outside Rome’s center. They had three people parking cars! They also had very nice pizza. Small town vibe on a super-sized compound.
“The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant'Angelo (English: Castle of the Holy Angel), is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome, Italy. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum. The Castel was once the tallest building in Rome.” - Wikipedia
Little owl friend on display at the Colosseum.
“Palazzo Barberini houses the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, one of the most important painting collections in Italy. It includes Raphael’s portrait La fornarina, Caravaggio’s Judith Beheading Holofernes and a Hans Holbein portrait of Henry VIII."I also love the wall fabric :) This museum is near Termini station and makes for a great last stop in Rome.
