Ciao everyone....The Bakerwoman heads to Rome!
Colosseum - monument to the power and cruelty of ancient Rome.....well known not only as a battleground for gladiators & an icon to the magnificence, power & prestige of ancient Rome, but also for its cruelty, as here thousands of gladiators, criminals & Christians met their violent end. The Colosseum is a structural & engineering marvel, one of the greatest works of Roman architecture.
I chanced upon this cozy cafe within walking distance from my hotel in Rome, I Clementini......
Right - my cappuccino :)
Left - Agnolotti (Agnolotti pronounced anneeolottee) are Piemontese stuffed pasta, and come in a great many different varieties, some filled with cheese, others meat, and others still meatless), Centre - Mozzarella Bufala Guanciale (with fried bacon, mozzarella cheese, lettuce salad) & Right - Mezza Manica Carbo
Also from I Clementini, we had salami sandwiches, Bruschetta & Green Pea soup
I Clementini Cafe & me enjoying my glass of Prosecco (its the most famous of Italy's sparkling white wines)
Here are some memorable glimses of Rome, market & Fountain di Trevi.
