Rome - Spring 2009
Roma! Roma! Roma! Amiamo Roma! We are back for another month in this wonderful city. And why do we love Rome…
The People like….
The owner of the apartment we rent. Stefano, and his girlfriend, Manuella…. Well we certainly love Manuella.
Where else can you find the `French Fry' pizza.
The Queen stands in front of an art gallery where the installation is called `One Last Try' and has a gallery completed filled with crumpled up pieces of paper.
The Queen stands in front of the Dior store where the dress in the window is priced at 4000 euros, the shoes are 295 Euros and the handbag is 3750 Euros.
The Armani women
The advertisers have finally read this website and have returned the Armani women after two showings of men only billboards.
The Queen stands in front of a store window that displays the latest in necklaces worn by only the strongest of Italian women.
The Queen at the Sannio Market where there is both new and used clothing for very little euros.
Did I mention the food?
Here the Queen sits with the dinner we ordered at Antica Taverna near Piazza Navonna. It is fresh fish day and we have ordered the `orata', a local fish. The pasta is one with ricotta cheese and melanzane (eggplant) and the vegetable dish to the left is cavoli con aglio (cauliflower with garlic).
Everyone Loves Rome
This year almost every single group of touring kids can be seen with about half of them wearing this sweatshirt. This is the first year we have seen these and the vendors must be pushing them.
